  • Week 10 – Blog: Individual Assignment

    Because of my political ideology, I am very pro-union, and I almost certainly will join one when given the opportunity. From a societal standpoint, I believe that unions are extremely important. I believe in flattening out hierarchies and giving power/compensation to those that create value for society. This is almost always the workers in unions […]

  • Week 9 – Blog Assignment/Discussion

    I scored 89 points on the first test. I think that this score is low because I do not have many responsibilities at this point in my life. I have financial assistance from my parents to cover the costs of college, and I have food and shelter provided for me. The reason why I scored […]

  • Week 8 – Blog Assignment/Discussion

    A major example of a time that someone I am close to was motivated by incentives was when my roommate chose to run for vice president of our fraternity. I wanted him to step into the role, but he had a lot of reservations about the time commitment. His grandparents were helping him cover his […]

    I will discuss two trainings in the area of data analytics. The training that I found to be very effective were the two Power BI trainings that I took while interning at P3 Adaptive. The training that I found to be less effective was the hybrid class BA 375 that I took last year. The […]

  • Week 5 – Blog Assignment/Discussion

    For this assignment, I can only reflect on interviews that I have done for my past two internships. These interviews were unstructured and were more focused on what I knew so that the company knew how to structure the internship so that I gained the most out of it. The unstructured nature of the interviews […]

It is common that whoever took over in the HR department inherited some out of date and poor-quality job descriptions for different spots around the company, and it is important to address this. For starters, I think that […]

  • Week 1 – Blog Assignment/Discussion

    The three companies that I selected from the list were Hilton, American Express, and The Cheesecake Factory Inc. I wanted to select three companies that have very different culture from my perspective, and also occupy different space in different industries. While I did not go too far in depth to researching these companies’ HR practices, […]

  • Week 10 – Blog Post: Most Important Thing You’ve Learned

    In my opinion, the most important thing that I’ve learned in this course is not one week’s specific topic, but rather the “A” method as a whole. I really enjoyed the required readings each week because I was intrigued by the concept of the A method, how to apply it, and how it benefits organizations […]

  • Week 9 – Blog Post: Self-Reflection

    1. What am I good at? I am a natural leader, because I possess good public speaking and interpersonal skills. I am able to relate to others very well, and because of this, I can motivate others to work towards a common goal. I am also a very analytical thinker who can recognize the underlying […]

    The results of this test showed that I was high in all dimensions of personality besides neuroticism. The two areas where I scored the highest were conscientiousness and openness to experience. These results show that I am a well-rounded individual who is organized, extraverted, and likes to think and discuss complex topics. I believe that […]
