Professional Procedures and Portfolio Development
After talking to an employee at Axis Architecture I began to visualize myself working at
this place of employment. I started asking her questions about how she felt about her job.
Questions that I asked her were, did she enjoy the people that she worked with? Did she
feel that the people she worked with had the same goals for the company? She began to
tell me that all the people she worked with have worked with her for a while now and that
everybody was like family. Each individual also had the same goals for the company.
I also wanted to know how people dressed at work and how did people feel about the dress code. She stated that unless told beforehand that dress was casual to semi-formal depending on the day. Another aspect that was important to me was about the industry trend. Are the strong indications of industry growth in our area? What are the major companies located in the area and can we compete and still reach our goals and our finance goals as well? I wanted to know if the company was a large corporation or a small business? Where are the headquarters of the company? Does they have locations in my area or will employment require relocation? What year was the company founded?
My next set of questions focused on the company’s product and structure of business. What are the opportunities for employment and which divisions (if any) were growing? What is the relative size of the company, its position in the industry, and its competitors? How are the stocks for the company performing? Is there obvious financial growth? Does the company focus mainly on domestic sales or worldwide markets? What are the policies for the employees and what benefits are offered? Are there and job openings in my field of study and what are their criteria? Are the opportunities for continued learning?
After researching the company values it was time to see if my values were a match to see if this is the right place of employment for me. Of course the money and benefits were okay but I was also worried about the location of the company and it seemed to fit my needs. I found out the quality of the environment was acceptable as well. The climate was not going to be a factor since most of my work is inside or sheltered. The job availability is also important and there are plenty of opportunities for jobs as well as continued education. The cost of living is no change and the transportation is also not an issue. The people that I would be working with are professionals. This I feel is excellent because I can learn from these individuals and what I learn from these people along with my education and skills I should be able to fit in functionally for the company.
The position of employment I am looking for is using AutoCAD and my drafting knowledge to obtain a position in an architecture firm. I am looking to design and implement my skills and ideas to excel in the field. Axis provides all the services I need to use my skills and much more. From designing homes, buildings, or additional work in the field I feel this company possesses all the right attributes and duties that I am seeking.
They are not a very big company and are located in a nice small village. I like this because that gives the company room to grow and I can be a person to help expand and reach out to the community.
In short I believe Axis-Architecture is the perfect company for me. With the room for advancement, people that I work with, and the company’s goals I feel that I will fit in well if need be. Their location and size is ideal for an entry-level student in the field. Their pay and benefits are negotiable which is usual for a small company. I am basically pleased overall with this company and hope to be making an impact as soon as possible.

Native Canadians in LiteratureNative Canadians in Literature Introduction: Literature offers a strong and passionate voice for the past. The literature of the Native Canadian is a voice we, the people of Canada, can no longer ignore. There is little to be gained by dwelling on the past. Nevertheless, there is much to be realized by accepting what has passed, with all of its mistakes and dust we might otherwise wish to hide under the carpets.

Working MothersWorking Mothers Many women today are facing choices that their mothers never had to face. One of these choices is whether or not to go back to work after having a child. This was practically unheard of in the 1950\'s. In the 1990\'s it is not whether the mother will or will not go back to work, rather a question of when. When did the choice become set in stone?

America and Affirmative ActionAmerica and Affirmative Action Affirmative action has been the subject of increasing debate and tension in American society. However, the debate over affirmative action has become ensnared in rhetoric that pits equality of opportunity against the equality of results.

Participants in the debate have over examined the ethical and moral issues that affirmative action raises while forge

Virginia WoolfVirginia Woolf It was common for women writers to address the so-called woman question in their works during the 19th and 20th centuries. This is true of one of the well-known authors, Virginia Woolf, whose life spanned from the end of the Victorian to the start of the modern era. She was born in 1882 to Leslie Stephen, a man of prominence during the Victorian era, and she was primarily self-educated in his vast library.

Affermative ActionAffermative Action Affirmative Action Affirmative Action efforts were started in 1964 to end the long history of overlooking qualified people of color and women from higher education.

The initial way the government tried to justify Affirmative Action was to develop a human resource approach: first identifying the problem, which i
Affirmative ActionAffirmative Action The roots of Affirmative Action can be traced back to the passage of the Civil Rights Act where legislation redefined public and private behavior.

Affirmative actionAffirmative action Affirmative action is a growing argument among our society. It is multifaceted and very often defined vaguely. Some can define affirmative action as the ability to strive for equality and inclusiveness. Others might see it as a quota-based system for different minority groups. “Affirmative action was originally designed to help minorities” (Gross, 1996). Is affirmative action fair? Are minority groups on equal footing? Is gaining employment for minorities difficult? Is educati
WILLIAM WORDSWORTHWILLIAM WORDSWORTH Romanticism officially began in 1798, when William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge anonymously published Lyrical Ballads. This work marked the official beginning of a literary period which had already begun many years before 1798. A work is defined to be of a certain period by its characteristics, therefore to be considered a Romantic work, the work must contain aspects which are termed “Romantic.” A few typical “Romantic” aspects are: love of the past; sympathy to the

Adam SmithAdam Smith Adam Smith, a brilliant eighteenth-century Scottish political economist, had the advantage of judging the significance ol colonies by a rigorous examination based on the colonial experience of 300 years.

But his analysis is rich with insight and remarkably dispassionate in its argument. Adam Smith recognized that the discovery of the New World not only brought wealt
Economics: The American GovernmentEconomics: The American Government Most of the problems of the United states are related to the economy. One of the major issues facing the country today is social security. The United States was one of the last major industrialized nations to establish a social security system. In 1911, Wisconsin passed the first state workers compensation law to be held constitutional. At that time, most Americans believed the government should not have to care for the aged, disabled or needy. But such attitud
Poverty and WelfarePoverty and Welfare Today it seems as if everyone has a theory about fighting poverty, now it is not necessary to be moving in the theoretical plane. Our country has had successful anti-poverty programs that were effective back a century ago, effective because they were based on these seven points: affiliation, bonding, categorization, discernment, employment, freedom, and God. But a key element in all of them is personal involvement and challenge, both material and spiritual. If folks a hundred
