All of my interviews are completed and my hiring process is now complete. I sent my instructions in an email to Mrs. H. My experience with business class was not the best. I fell behind and kept getting in a bigger and bigger hole.
I met my goal of typing on average of 60 WPM.
I’ve improved 37 “inches” in my time in business class. I’ve learned a lot more about using Microsoft word and Microsoft Outlook.

What went well?
All my interviews went well and the communication went well.

What didn’t go well?
There wasn’t really anything that didn’t go well.

Can a well written resume and cover letter help you make the best first impression?
Yes I think a great resume and cover letter can help you to get a job even if the interview went bad.


My name is Tommy. I am very active in sports and I’m a responsible and trustworthy person. I can do whatever I’m told to do and with great effort.


Today we watched some presentations. There were some really good ones that were really convincing and made me want to contribute. I will have to present mine on monday.


Today I finished my proposal and turned it in. I felt like I did all right on it and now I have to work on my presentation tomorrow. I also got my voice over turned in.


I’m now setting new goals for the rest of the term. My first goal is still typing. I want to be at 70 WPM by the end of the year. My second goal is communication. I practice this by playing the lego game with someone. I want to play with someone and get 2 errors our less by the end of the term. My third goal is going to be my neatness when writing in cursive. I write in cursive at home but my mom said that some of it is hard to read so I’m going to practice every night and become neater when writing so people can read it perfectly.

I have improved my typing greatly in this class. I started out at about 45-50 WPM and I’m not up to 60-70 WPM. I have practiced writing in cursive at home and with my dad and when I first started writing it took me a while and it wasn’t very neat; but now I can write just well in cursive as I can normally. I haven’t had much time to practice the number pad but when I did I did the best I could. When I started out, I wasn’t very good at all using the number pad and I had a lot of errors. Now I can use the number pad and have little or no errors while using it.


Today we worked on our databases again and my query didn’t open for some reason so I had to restart the whole thing, but I did it and made it work. I also helped Ike make his query work.
