Free Career Tests

Free Career Tests | College | Scoop.it
When you are not sure what type of job you want or what you want to do next with your career, a career test can help you narrow down your job choices and help you choose a career path that is compatible with your interests.
Paula Bersabe's insight:

I remember doing a lot of Career Tests in middle school and even in high school, but not one test came near of the subject of me being a Computer Engineer. Even though they say this is only estimating your career paths, some of their jobs aren't even close to what students would actually pick. I remember doing these tests, trying to get assurance if being a Computer Engineer is totally for me, but it didn't.

Career Growth Includes Conversations With Your Manager

Career Growth Includes Conversations With Your Manager | College | Scoop.it

"Don't wait for your manager to come and talk about your career. Rather, have a practical discussion with them about your willingness to stay in the organization and what else is available for you there based on your skill set and experience."

 

"Stating your long-term objectives in a professional discussion with your supervisor will enhance your value within the organization and provide you with a better career path than you ever thought."

 

The article offers up practical advise on how to go about having more conversations with your manager and what it can do to help accelerate your career.

Paula Bersabe's insight:

When you're on a workplace, you need to communicate with everyone— co-workers, team leaders, managers, even executives. They're there to help you from problems on a workplace to getting a higher position. I have a part time job as a swim instructor/lifeguard and I took that job to learn how to work with others; I can use the skills I've learned there, not necessarily jumping in the pool and do some kind of stroke, but how to talk to co-workers. If you do so, not only are you building relationships but also building your career path.

Kids & Computers – Pros and Cons

Kids & Computers – Pros and Cons | College | Scoop.it
Many of our readers are blessed with kids. And it's not a secret for caring parents that nowadays children have nearly unlimited access to computers (if they allow them to use those at all). It would be incorrect to assert that computers are absolutely ha

Via Thomas Faltin
Paula Bersabe's insight:

In no right world should 0-3 years old kids should be holding computers before they can walk and talk. But all this publicity, especially from Computer Engineers, says that it's good for them. They can communicate in large variety and etc. but it'll lessen their mind skills and physical activities. I'm sadden that I'm going to be a Computer Engineer and this is one of the drawback. Before I read this article, all the computers I'll be assembling and creating are mainly for older people but then I learned that those older people can share it with their kids. But we can't dictate how people live their lives.

Harvard & MIT create first self-assembling robots – the first real Transformers

Harvard & MIT create first self-assembling robots – the first real Transformers | College | Scoop.it

Harvard and MIT engineers, showing reckless disregard for the robocalypse, have created origami robots that can self-assemble themselves — from a flat piece of paper and polystyrene — and walk away in just four minutes. “Getting a robot to assemble itself autonomously and actually perform a function has been a milestone we’ve been chasing for many years,” says Harvard’s Robert Wood, barely stifling a maniacal cackle. http://www.peepstalks.com/harvard-mit-create-first-self-assembling-robots-the-first-real-transformers/

Paula Bersabe's insight:

This a great news for Harvard and MIT engineer students who assembled first self-assembling robots. It takes a lot of problem solving, data analysis, and cooperation with other engineers. I've got recruited by these two schools and it'll be a great honor for me to get in and venture out and have this kind honor under my name.

I really agree with this when normally I don't like having my life revolve with media. Kids these days are so dependent with technologies that I don't think they can live without it. But now that I think about it, it's scary at the end of high school and suddenly push you out to the real world without any clue what to do. So you might want to Skype back home or put something on Facebook  to show what's on your mind. The only draw back is that you'll get suck in quickly.

Paula Bersabe's insight:

It is so hard to find money these days. People have to work 2 jobs sometimes 3 to be able to meet minimum living cost. But what about those people who has students loans or about to get them? What's their future like? "Starbucks announced it would pay for college for employees who want to earn a college degree." When I read this article, it relates to me a lot because as a prospective college student, I know that there's ways I can get so I won't be in debt when I come out from college. That companies like Starbucks, can still give me the lending hand for my dream of being a Computer Engineer.

What Do I Need to Know About Changes to the 2014-15 FAFSA Form? | University Parent Media | College | Scoop.it

Via CSINowedu, Jewel Graham
Paula Bersabe's insight:

I've ask counselors both from Everett High and EvCC about FAFSA but both school gave me vague answers about it, saying it's due first thing in New Year's day. But when I went to visit U of W Seattle, I asked one of the financial counselor and pointed out where to find it on their website. When I did, it made me more sense than ever! You can send from their site to 8 more colleges and the earlier you send it in, the better!

CSINowedu's curator insight, January 10, 2014 6:37 AM

The Department of Education changed the wording of the form in some areas to utilize inclusive terms. Instead of specifying "father/stepfather" for one parent and "mother/stepmother" for the second, the form will now ask for "Parent 1 (father/mother/stepparent)" and "Parent 2 (father/mother/stepparent)."

Jewel Graham's curator insight, January 12, 2014 10:36 PM

I found this helpful before applying for the FAFSA application because it tells you what they have improved or changed on the FAFSA form. Complete the FAFSA soon, the quicker the better!

How to Decide on What to Do with Your Life

How to Decide on What to Do with Your Life | College | Scoop.it
When you're young, the world is your oyster and opportunities seem endless, but there can be a lot of pressure to decide on a life path. How do you know what career to pursue and what to do with your future?

Via Peter Hilton
Paula Bersabe's insight:

The future is unpredictable and when it's time for high school students to pick something out we'll all say "I don't know what I want!" And its true. When I was a freshman four years ago, I didn't know what I want to do. Should I be a neurosurgeon or photographer? Why not get a pilot license? Being a full time music teacher isn't too bad. All of those though aren't good enough for my mom. She pressured me into taking a chance of being a Computer Engineer. As the years pass by, I grew into that idea that I must do that. Thankfully I finally decided that I do want to be a Computer Engineer. I'm one of the few lucky high school students who has a set goal before graduating from high school. BUT it doesn't mean I didn't go through uncertainty, discomfort, confusion, and pressure.

Paula Bersabe's insight:

I think this is funny what people thinks of Computer Engineer. It's stereotypical. I don't think Computer Engineers hacks profiles, play Solitaire, being anonymous, trying to be better than other engineers, do matrix, or search for directions on how to fix their computer on google. Who created facebook? Solitaire? Google? Who uses Matrix a lot? Isn't an Engineer? They do so much more and receive so less of credits and praises than what they deserve.

Disruptions: Brain Computer Interfaces Inch Closer to Mainstream

Disruptions: Brain Computer Interfaces Inch Closer to Mainstream | College | Scoop.it

The technology, often called a brain computer interface, was conceived to enable people with paralysis and other disabilities to interact with computers or control robotic arms, all by simply thinking about such actions. Before long, these technologies could well be in consumer electronics, too.

Soon, we could be turning on the lights at home just by thinking about it, or sending an e-mail from our smartphone without even pulling the device from our pocket.


Via Szabolcs Kósa
Paula Bersabe's insight:

This articles has been predicted by many people I've known or have met from the past. My 8th grade history teacher once said that someday people can text using their mind. It's similar to this article isn't it? And it's scary. I don't like having my life revolve on technology but at the same time technology and electronics will never die unlike other companies. That's why I pick being a Computer Engineer.  Comprehending this article as much as I can and for a long time, it fascinate me that our society is heading towards this. But back then we didn't have this. We don't meet people through online chat room and we actually mingle and went out like humans. Some people might might say that the internet world helps them connect back home when they can't go back home and other reasons. So I might be in the middle of this issue. One side I am only for it because I know technology will never die and the other it's sad to see people revolving their time and life on this small metallic devices. I wish sometime to get away from that and connect with the world gadget free.

The Latest Computer Technology You Have to See to Believe | College | Scoop.it
Moore's Law, the truism that the amount of raw computational power available for a dollar tends to double roughly every eighteen months, has been a part of computer science lore since 1965, when Gordon Moore first observed the trend and wrote a paper on it.  At the time, the "Law" bit was a joke.  49 years…

Paula Bersabe's insight:

Part of the reason why I am interested on being a Computer Engineer major is because I like hearing and solving this kind of things about computers. I always wonder how to get a computer to run faster. The other day when I was using this year 2000 computer model, it was painfully slow that I ended up using my laptop and take a chance on connecting a low wi-fi signal, which is way faster than the computer. If what they say here is their plan to make computers faster, I wonder how many teams would they need to assemble this project, what's their ideas and plans, and what is their estimated time to do this project. All of these questions are affiliated with being a Computer Engineer major.

How The Government Could Make Public College Free For All Students | ThinkProgress.org

How The Government Could Make Public College Free For All Students | ThinkProgress.org | College | Scoop.it

Tuition at public colleges came to $62.6 billion in 2012, according to the latest government data. That’s less than what the government already spends to subsidize the cost of college through grants, tax breaks, and work-study funds, which comes to about $69 billion. It spends another $107.4 billion on student loans.

 

That means that with the money it already spends to make college affordable, the government could instead subsidize public college tuition, thereby making it free for all students. This would not just mean anyone could attend a higher education institution without worrying about cost, but it could incentivize private ones to reduce their costs in order to compete with the free option.

 

 

It would also address the government’s current patchwork attempts to make college affordable, which isn’t working for many low- and middle-income families. Tax-based aid is mostly delivered to wealthy families, not the ones in need. Pell Grants, on the other hand, were cut in 2012, which meant students got less aid or kicked out altogether, after already covering the smallest percentage of college costs since the program was created. (House Republicans have had the program in their sights for even more cuts.)

 

The cost of college has been rising dramatically in recent years, with the price tag for attending a public four-year university climbing 27 percent and the cost of a private education rising by 13. At the same time, more and more students have been taking on debt to help finance their educations, with total debt now past the $1 trillion mark. This puts the burden of rising costs on them, which can sometimes be heavy. One in eight of those student borrowers is now in default.

Paula Bersabe's insight:

Free college will be wonderful and I agree that instead of the government spending it on getting people more in debt instead of giving the money away for better use. But where does the money come from? The people right? I don't think tax payers will pay higher taxes because some of them might be on a tight budget and they can't afford it. Free college will be nice but it's so far from reality.
