Career Coaching - First Session
11:48 - Just got home from my first session with my career coach. It was a nice “getting to know you” sort of session. I think this is going to work out pretty well. It’s nice to have someone who at least has a broad idea of what my path could be to help me get in front of potential employers.
My thoughts right out of the gate:
- I’m pretty good at talking to people once I get in front of them. I feel less confident about presenting myself on paper and getting in front of them in the first place.
- Apparently my resume looks good! As far as content, I’m rather confident that prospective employers might have trouble translating it to applicable qualifications. That’s on the docket for next time.
- Never thought about creating a logo for myself. Maybe something like AshleyMichal.web_developer(). Dorky?
- By next session I’d like to have completed the Ruby portion of The Odin Project and be somewhere inside the Rails section.
Unfortunately being gone for three weeks, I feel like I need to play a little catch up. I took another look at my Hangman game and I just feel like I need to go other the material again. I /think/ I know the steps, but I’m not 100% certain of the implementation. Also my functions and classes keep getting all confused. I just want it to be clean! What was that note about coercing..?
