Speaking of resumes...
The purpose of personality/career testing
Working in a fulfilling career can dramatically increase happiness, self-confidence, and productivity, and consequently improve a company's performance. A career self-assessment is an important tool that can help identify possible avenues on a career path for an employee and be the instrument that opens up communication between the employee and his or her employer on how best to proceed. When the manager works with his employee to find the career path most rewarding for the employee, they are setting the stage for a long-term productive partnership.

Here's my Vark's score
Learning Strategies
1. Our minds are like libraries. If well kept and categorized, your resources can be easily obtained. If scattered and piled up in random places, its hard to find. So in order for me to learn about information I'll need to categorize and label my information into different sections but limiting how much categories in order to not pile up that information.
2. 7 is the lucky number. It's also the key to memory building. Look all around and you'll see that the number 7 is used everywhere. How many continents are there? 7 wonders of the world? Seven deadly sins? 7 Eleven? Snow White? 7Th Heaven? How many questions did I ask? It is used to help remember pieces of information and builds your long term memory by not piling on too much. So when there is too much information to remember place them in categories or lists of seven's.
3. For me, hands on training is the best way to learn. I learn by experimenting, whether its pass or fail, these would only be stepping stones toward success.When it comes to reading and taking notes I'll keep in mind the first two strategies because I know I'll need it.

Things Employers Want to Hear From Your Interview
For starters, SPEAK UP.
They want to know if your objectives will meet their goals.
Are you compatible? Will you fit in with the companies culture?
Are you eager to do the job?
Adaptability? Communication? Commitment?
"While working here at the University of California in San Diego, I will also be able to attend my classes without having to travel far. I can also contribute with work needed for carpentry as students will give feedback on the areas."
