For my chosen profession, business attire is most appropriate for an interview. A pencil skirt or slacks with a nice top and possibly a blazer or jacket with heels or flats is pretty much standard for professional work attire.
Communication, attitude, job qualifications, and appearance are the top four categories that employers look for when they interview you. I think that attitude is the most important category for employers when they interview you. If your attitude is poor, then they will not even worry about how you communicate or your qualifications for the job. I think that appearance is next, then communication, then qualifications.
The title of this article is “5 reasons your portfolio should be online” by George Couros. It is about the ways that society is changing and the ways that we need to adapt in order to have a better chance at finding careers. The five points that he stresses are: 1. The Google Factor 2.

I will definitely use my portfolio in the future to help me get jobs. I think that it will work to my advantage if an employer looks at my online portfolio because it gives you even more information about a person. I think that it would be a good experience to create your online portfolio in kindergarten, but I don’t think that it would give you an advantage when applying for a job. I think that the most helpful page for me is my home page because you get to see me on a few different levels, from the picture, to the facts, to my thoughts and opinions. I think that you can get to know someone pretty well by looking at their portfolio. When I do journal checks, I learn a little bit more about the person that I am grading just based on three journal entries.
I think that #4 is most important to me because I am not a very loud person, so sometimes I regret when opportunities go past me and I don’t take advantage of them. I need to remember that no employer will go out of their way to hire me because there are probably people out there who wanted it more. I have to be that person who wants it more. I will use this information to my advantage by making sure that what I have online is positive, staying organized, easy accessibility to my updated portfolio, and to always keep moving forward and learning from my past experiences. There is always something new to learn.

The activities that I do don't really tie in to my chosen career field, but they do help prepare me for that career. Softball helps me be prepared, disciplined, and have teamwork and time management.

One fact that I learned from these laws is that the minimum wage is $7.40 in Michigan, but minors may be paid 85% of that wage. This caught my eye because I thought that the minimum wage was the absolute minimum.
Being a waitress relates to being a statistician because you have to collect data, or orders, from people and analyze it. then you have to do the math when the check comes. Statisticians also have to analyze data and do math.
My least favorite task from the career that I selected is applying statistical theories and methods to solve practical problems in business, engineering, the sciences, or other fields. I like collecting and analyzing data, but not really determining what the data means. It isn't that bad, but it is the least enjoyable task of being a statistician to me. I will deal with it by learning to like these tasks over time.
Being a statistician is enjoyable. You can learn interesting things about the world. You can get paid to look at the answers of surveys and polls. Being a statistician is interesting because you can study data and how different people from different walks of life do things differently and what similarities they have. You get to see the world from a different point of view. Statisticians are behind the scenes at almost every different kind of business or workplace.
