Day to Day

First thing in the AM I review my emails and prioritize them on criticality, review my daily meetings and organize my work for the day. Then I have a stand up meeting with the offshore team to discuss progress and impediments. I make my rounds around my team to see if I can assist or resolve any roadblocks for them. Next I usually have an 11:00 am sprint planning or grooming meetings. More meetings in the afternoon and answer emails and review projects quality progress.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Well if you get into IT you will never stop learning as programming languages, hardware and applications are in perpetual change, so keeping up with the latest technology is always a challenge. I don't believe that most technical skills are gained by hitting the books. For me, all of my technical skills that I have learned are from doing it, hands on. I would encourage everyone to roll up their sleeves and get down to it.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

First one needs to figure out what is it that they enjoy doing, then incorporate that passion (hobby) it into a career. This career could be working for yourself or someone else. As long as you are doing what you enjoy best, work will never be work for you. It will always be fun. One must pursue their passion, no matter if you are not good at it. as long as you continue to do it over and over again, through repetition, you will succeed.

The Noise I Shed

From Myself:

"Being laid off from a company is always tough, however if one keeps a positive attitude and work hard on preparing yourself for that next challenge, that it will come, you will land on a better place."

Just focus on what you do best and do it better. Don't pay too much attention to those that don't really know you or value all your hard work and efforts.
