You will prepare and submit a term paper on My Learning and Work Experience. Your paper should be a minimum of 1250 words in length. Critical thinking skills were essential in making decisions quickly while efficiently and economically using the resources available. I consider my more developed critical thinking skills as my most important everyday tool. For instance, imagine that somebody purchased a new printer for a thousand dollars. of course, all the ink cartridges are new, including all color inks. However, when the person tries to print a test page, there is just black ink on the page. For me, this is a simple problem because I can quickly and logically identify a basic driver conflict. I always use critical thinking to isolate and fix problems in a logical way.
There is an idea in philosophy that states that something cannot come from anything. In my case, I have learned many things working as a network administrator, but one of the most important things that I have learned is how to conduct research. For example, in my daily activities I need to identify, diagnose, and correct problems affecting the local area network. Sometimes problems are extremely difficult to detect, but I have enough experience to find many network issue in minutes. For instance, in the school system, children like to play with everything. One day, my network stopped abruptly. Using my research techniques I found that one of the students decided to connect a wireless router into my network, and this created conflicts with internal users. The end result was that nobody could access the Internet and internal servers. I am positive that through the execution of my job assignments such as this incident, I have enhanced my research skills.
Creativity is another essential tool I’ve developed through my work experience, particularly during the period in which I served as microsystems technician. In 1996, I went to training in computer hardware, in which I learned many concepts and expanded my creativity. .
