Communication Technologies

Advantages and disadvantages

Communication technology will have obvious advantages and disadvantages. In our modern times, we are all resorting to more and more usage of technology when it comes to communication. Advantages of this technology give us faster communication all-around. Like with the possession of cell-phones (that have the ability to surf the web), we can view and respond to emails and text messages from other members in our groups.

That can also be a disadvantage however. With how attached we are to these devices sometimes we need a break. I personally experience screen fatigue. I feel myself being drained after a long day of starring at screens. I use technology every day for absolutely everything, first of all, with the Internet I can take this double degree with CityU and I can upload my tasks and assignments. I use all this kind of technologies to be able to carry out my work and school activities.


Conflicts in groups

At this point in my studies I have been part of many groups, for example in all my classes I have had team works and in most of the cases all the members have had good communication. Most of the time I have had a very good experience since we divide the work equally and always try to ask and answer questions so that we all go to the same pace. 

Only once I experienced a conflict, I usually form part of a team with people I know. Once I was in a team with people from my own city and I personally knew except one who was from another city. We had many problems to get the job forward, since the person from the other city never had his share of the work on time, always put excuses and when he gave his share, everything was always wrong. I had to interfere and talk to him, since I needed his information to be able to do my part of the job.

Having an online interview makes anyone nervous even  though they have already had many face-to.face interviews, because never a job interview is the same as another.

Sometimes preparing for interviews takes great effort and preparation. 

Do your research before you do anything else.

It is important that you know well what the company does and a little of its background. Sometimes it is useful to know it as they may ask what you know about the company, and why you think is the best option for you.

Make sure you have a good internet connection before the interview, to avoid problems during the interview. It is also important that you find the right place to conduct the interview, it is recommended that it be a quiet place, without noise and a place where you feel comfortable to avoid nervousness.

Leadership Skills

Don't be a boss, be a LEADER

There is a difference believe it or not between being a boss and a leader. A boss drives and pushes employees, while a leader coaches them. A boss sees his employees as tools at his disposal, while a leader sees his team members as clay to be molded. A boss identifies problems and demands a solution from his employees, while a leader sits down with his team to work out a solution to the problem.
