My Special Day 2
I remember telling my new uni bestfriend about my feelings of being a new “Twenteen Guy”. Honestly it was like feeling like a grown up…It was different the first few weeks after I realised that things have changed.
New Uni Academic Life
The 2nd year at UoM was completely different with spicy modules like Human Resources Management and Database Systems. Equally funny and entertaining module like Foundations of IT Law, ahem ahem a module which is tailor made only for our course! 😉
The second year was marked with different atmosphere amongst classmates. I was very sad for my uni best friend for not being able to make it to the second year. We used to enjoy a lot together and I always enjoyed her company.
Doing assigments and group works with friends has been an enriching experience. Different style of working, effective time management to tackle the assignment deadline constraints….phew
Obtaining the driving license is not enough….You learn everything when you are put in action. I have learnt quite a lot till now and getting more mature for more to come in the world of automobile.
Am even more determined to toil hard to shape the desired career path. Got the opportunity to witness impressive CVs and I find myself not always satisfied with my personal CV. I try to think about stuff which would make me “more employable” or in other words possessing assets having a return on investment in the long term.
I am obtaining a better insight about the IT industry. Much credit goes to the British Computer Society Professional Exams. Damn, the exams are really really to the professional level. Academic theory (Much like learning style at the uni) will not always pay off in the examinations room. Even worst, you get questions of real-life projects and case studies.
I am really happy to extend the network of professional in the industry and determined to ensure that networking with professionals in other industry is not left behind in the agenda.
Realise friends getting maried at a very young age. My perso opinion about this is that: NO! Its not the right time. This is a very young age. Take your time to experience new stuff and take your time to enjoy your perso life. Getting committed with a “soul mate” at such a young age together with the “family package” is not appropriate in my humble opinion.
Practical Training 2009
This is a place where you are on the stage. Real spot lights on you, the settings and musical background all ready for you, for your performance. Apart from developing techincal skills, this training is here to help me get a real insight about the management style and corporate culture. Critical Thinking acquired during the Human Resources Management is the key.
This is a bit from the insight of the Twentees. I have gained more maturity and still there is more to go since have the opportunity to be exposed with the industry via Practical Training.
Sharing the goodness of being a UoM Student has been a great pleasure and fun doing via the wonderful blogging platform WordPress. The Mauritian Blogosphere and Twitterverse is also very young and dynamic. Its in constant evolution with more folks joining the highway of Web 2.0 and sharing this passion via the internet.
