I have always had a passion for computers. Ever since I realised I had the natural ability in this field. I have wanted to expand my knowledge of ICT. I find the more I learn the more I want to learn. I believe computers are not only a huge part of the present but will only become a bigger part of the future and I believe with the knowledge I have already gained and the knowledge I hope to gain in the future I will do better in the working industry.
Every part of every course to do with ICT I have enjoyed even if for example I found a unit challenging I relished in the chance to use my skills in ICT to complete a unit to the best standard, whilst learning more useful skills. I have always found that with every challenge put in front of me I have always come out of the other end with a wider range of skills and looking for the next challenge ahead.
The computing course I want to enrol in I feel is the right course for me, I believe this because it would be wrong for me not to go higher into my field of education, the Course I am taking now the applied A level ICT course is teaching me many aspects of computing and with the enjoyment I am gaining in this course I feel I must go higher.
After my completion of the computing course I hope to go into a career in systems analysis. With the all the skills combined throughout my journey in education I would have the right strengths to go into this career. I want to use the skills I gain in the best possible mannor. I have always enjoyed problem solving and with all my skills combined I want to be valued in an organisation and to be useful to any employer. I have experienced being in a team before many times and I have always relished it.
I have had many accounts of work experience, all involving team working. My first experience was a two week work experience placement in ASDA. I did 9-5 Monday- Friday for two weeks, with no pay. At only the age of 15 this experience was invaluable I learnt so much from just a short while, I mainly learnt that the working world most importantly needs to work as a team. I was mainly working on the shop floor where two or sometimes three members of staff were working with me to complete tasks and finish stacking stock on time.
My second work experience was at Sainsbury's, I gained ten months experience at this supermarket. This experience mainly taught me how to apply more than one skill to a job, as well as working on shop floor I was till trained and often asked to help out the till department if it was getting busy.
This taught me that I have the ability to handle more than one skill and put all my skills to use for my team. I also learnt how to deal with any type of customer, with time and with the help of my team I was able to keep my calm in any situation and be polite and confident to any customer that required my attention.
I was recently hired for Iceland stores as a Christmas temp. I am sure that this job will scratch of any rust I may have from a gap of employment. Also this Christmas temp job will give me a test to see if I can handle pressure in a busy period such as the Christmas holidays. With all this experience both behind and in front of me I am sure that I have no worries in applying myself to the working world.
I have looked at a number of options I can choose and I firmly believe that university is the best next step forward. Every aspect of university I know I will enjoy from expanding my knowledge even further to living in the halls and interacting with many different people.
One of the greatest things about college is you learn so much from other people, you are in the same boat as everyone else but everyone is different and I believe this will be the same at university. A place at your university will not be wasted I will prove that I can gain even more knowledge of the computer industry and use that knowledge in the best possible way.
Sample Computer Science Personal Statement
My enthusiasm for Information Technology includes both the workings of the technology itself and the uses to which it can be put in the modern world. A long-standing interest in computers has given me a good knowledge of programming languages, and my school and college courses have introduced me to the immense value of databases, web technology and multimedia facilities. Computers essentially make tasks which were once difficult much easier and quicker to perform, and I have a clear understanding of how this benefits large human organizations, both in the commercial world and in public service. Databases in particular lie at the heart of most systems, automating complex work and allowing for rapid tracking of information. computer science is a key factor in all business enterprises nowadays, and it is clear that any company that neglects its ICT provision is unlikely to succeed in the modern international marketplace. I am excited by the way computing technology can solve problems in business, allow people to work together productively and give companies a competitive edge in the market, and I am keen to study business database management, business systems analysis and the ICT architecture which underlies efficient commercial patterns and procedures. Another aspect of computer science which I have discovered in my college course is Forensic Computing and the role of security technologies in safeguarding systems and allowing the E-commerce customer to feel confident in buying something over the internet. The recent sales figures for Christmas 2012 show how massive the online market is becoming, and the likelihood is that this will continue to grow. My own ambition is to be a part of this developing world, probably working in applications programming and software development for computer manufacturers, software producers or user organizations. There is no shortage of opportunity for someone with the sort of expertise I hope to develop.
My first language is Malayalam, and I have good English and Hindi. In 2010 I completed a City and Guilds level 3 diploma in ICT Professional Competence and then, in 2011, began my FdSc in Enterprise Computing. The College course is franchised by Manchester Metropolitan University, from which I shall gain the award in 2013. The course has covered many areas of computer science, including System Management, Security of ICT Systems, and Software Installation and Management, and has thus given me a sound basis for a full degree course. My work experience includes a six month post at a company called Xpress Car Services in the IT department, where I was a Data Analyst. I was responsible for updating the office system and records as well as general maintenance of the IT facilities in the firm. It was good experience of the real world of work and allowed me to see and work with IT in a commercial business.
Outside my computing interests I enjoy various sports, including badminton and swimming, and I travel as much as I can. I also have a taste for science fiction novels and short stories, probably a reflection of my own belief in the power of technology to make hitherto impossible tasks possible. Ay school I ran a Food Festival and was a member of the Prom Committee, and at my present college I am a student representative, speaking on behalf of my peers to improve standards and facilities. I believe these roles have helped me to develop confidence as well as teaching me much about working alongside other people.
I am hard-working and full of curiosity about my subject. I thrive on the challenge of puzzles and problems, and often find creative and original ways to deal with such things. At the same time I am always ready to learn and never frightened to ask questions. I enjoy working with others and always listen to their opinions and judgements. I am dedicated, focused, always keen to offer my best efforts, and believe I have the qualities necessary to become a very successful undergraduate.
