In my working career I have always been in a management role because I can lead people and have an ability to resolve issues and conflict. When I began my undergraduate work in psychology I had many areas to choose from however the area of interest that I found the most interesting was in Industrial Psychology. I was working and going to school, I found myself helping my employees with personal issues and with finding better positions with in the company that they were better qualified for. I now know why I have experienced some of the things in my life that I have it is in order to shape me into the person that I am today, with the ability and the life lessons to enable me to reach out to others and help them in all areas of their lives whether that be personal or professional I am able to provide the direction that they are looking for.<br />

  4. 4. Reflection<br />Having many life experiences to reflect upon having achieved an Associates degree and now with my Bachelors I am going to be taking some time to step back and enjoy this accomplishment of reaching my Bachelors degree. I have enjoyed the learning experience an the satisfaction of all of the diversity that I have been able to over come to reach this goal I hope that I can be an example for others that know matter how hard it is it is worth the effort to reach your goals. <br /> After looking through the self evaluation listing it had caused me to better understand the areas that I will have to work on and my hopes are that I will be able to find a position within a company that will allow me to expand on the things that I am strong on and improve on the areas where I am weaker. I am excited about my future and looking ahead to see where I can apply what I have learned from my time with Argosy.<br />
