Choosing to read Computing wasn’t a
hard decision to make. I thoroughly enjoy working with computers and have owned
a P.C. for the past 8 years. The enjoyment I’ve experienced during past lessons
and from good examination grades also aided my choice. The fact that the I.T. market is
forever expanding is what really appeals to me. I believe that I am reasonably
competent and also capable of keeping abreast of many of the latest
technologies and hope to incorporate them into my work. For example, I am intrigued by the
concept of the Internet. The idea that any information is easily and relatively
rapidly accessible from any connected terminal demonstrates how much computer
technology has evolved during the last 20 years. My aim is to develop future
generations of Internet technology; making it more secure, widespread and
capable of housing more material than ever before. My computer usage has not just been
limited to home and school. In 1999 I was sent to the Administrations Department
of IRISC Claims Management, a large insurance company in Sheffield, as part of
my Trident work experience. There I used P.C.s to log reference numbers of
received letters and to allocate them to their corresponding file. A Microsoft
Word based document, designed by myself, was also used to determine which files
needed retrieving and passing to appropriate senior staff. Other tasks included
inputting new claims, organising incoming post and other general office duties.
I was given a certificate for my hard work and excellent attendance and
punctuality. During the summer breaks of 2000
and 2001 I worked full-time at Ant Marketing in Rotherham as a Tele-marketing
researcher. As well as using telecommunications to interact with the client, I
simultaneously recorded their responses to scripted questions on a custom-made
P.C. program. Every hour the results of these questionnaires would be sent to
the local server to calculate my hourly figure. Recently I attended a Junior
Football Managers course that qualifies me, not only to coach children of ages
upto 11 but to administer First Aid for the next three years and to have the
opportunity to become the appointed Child Protection Officer of any Chartered
football club. This award also enables me to build up my catalogue of football
coaching techniques and I’m now eligible to proceed to the Advanced
Certificate. In 2000 I travelled to the Spanish
Pyrenees on a skiing trip with school. For my “Excellent” abilities I was
awarded a Diploma after completing a 5-day skiing school. As well as my interest in computers
I have other hobbies. I am a keen sports fan, in particular, football. I have
played for, an on occasion captained, my school throughout the last 6½ years
and for several successful local clubs and hope I will be able to persue this
interest at University. Other representative sports include rugby and cricket.
I also enjoy being a spectator and am currently in my 8th year as a
season-ticket holder at Sheffield United Football Club. I enjoy travelling and have also
visited St. Cast in northern France on two occasions and been on Summer Camp in
Borrowdale in the Lake District. I have also taken holidays in Greece, Turkey,
USA, Mexico and Thailand; where I went elephant trekking. I am looking forward to the challenges
of working in Higher Education and to persue my keen interest in Computing.
