Business Operations Assistant I (Human Capital Development Department)

My responsibilities were always fluid. Some days were very clerical in nature(typying, printing, researching and compiling data) and other days were more adventuous(accompanying my supervior to various locations, event planning, some heavy lifting and even chaperoning). I did a lot of work that was outside my job spec but I think that's why I enjoyed it the most. It broke the monotony of office work.

Business Operations Assistant I (Planning and Research Department)

My duties revolved around entering data, collected by field worker from fishermen, on various things like fish caught, distance, distance traveled, etc. The data was entered into a program called SPSS.

Business Operations Assistant I (Human Resources Department)

The unofficial title for this post is IHRIS clerk. IHRIS stands for Integrated Human Resources Information System. It is a digital database for the work records of public servants/civil servants in the republic of Trinidad and Tobago. I was responsible for updating and/or entering data related to pay increase, increments, leave taken(vacation, sick maternity,etc), leave granted, performance appraisals, record transfer either within the department or externally (e.g. Ministry of Education), etc.

Formerly a baby, sometimes a troublemaker, Always evolving, now a Web Developer. HTML, CSS, JS - his domain is the Front-End, Undoubtedly a Digital Creator, one to recommend. Detailed and thoughtful - let's all be clear, He's proud of the moniker: UX-Engineer. Simplicity, negative spaces, purposeful design - you get the gist, He subscribes to the philosophy of the Minimalist. Never afraid of the commandline or system breakage - "sudo" is his middle name, a Tinkerer at heart with distro hopping ways. Lover of choice, community and freedom - always willing to broadcast, Ever the Open Source Enthusiast.

His skills are improving!

Future Goals

Wedding Rings

Marriage & Family

It's something he eagerly looks forward to - the covenant, the commitment, the pursuit of another's heart and well-being in sickness and in health. Here's to hoping he lives long enough to see the day and wise enough to choose a partner that was spoken of in Proverbs 31.

House

Entrepreneurship

Groud's ideal vision for his professional life is to own a business in digital creation, namely web development, design consultancy and content management, while mostly working from a studio/office at home. He wants to be independent and entrepreneurial.

Skills Development

Full Stack

He definitely plans on developing his skills as a self-taught programmer. His main long-term goal is to become a competent full-stack web developer.

Mortarboard

Education

He believes that meaningful education doesn't always come in the form of a degree and that there is power in crafting his own education. As such, Groud intends to acquire useful skills primarily through certification and self-learning. With that said, pursuit of a degree is most definitely on the cards.

Personal Websites

DNA Strand Icon

When marketing yourself to employers or clients visibility matters. As such, providing easily accessible information about yourself is vital, especially in a competitive job market. An online portfolio/résumé/CV enhances your suite of tools as a job or client seeker - allowing you to market yourself beyond a paper résumé or cover letter.

Brand-building Websites

Website Icon

Your brand/business gains more credibility with one. In addition, giving it its own digital space, independent of social media, means you have maximum control over the layout, presentation and content without the hindrance of restrictive site policies and TOS. It's the difference between renting an apartment and owning a house.

Design • UI • UX

UX and UI

Your business will be judged based on the quality of your website regardless of whether or not it is a fair assessment - first impressions matter. Good design, UI(user interface) and UX(user experience) has a profound impact on customers.

Content Management

Social Media Icon

Reachability is curcial and social media gives you access to a huge audience. Let him connect and build relationships with your target demographic, grow your audience, drive engagement and drive sales for your business in the process.

When an artist is in the strict sense working, he of course takes into account the existing tastes, interests and capacity of his audience. These no less than the language , the marble, the paint, are part of his aw material; to be used, tamed, sublimated, not ignored or defied. Haughty indifference to them is not genius, it is laziness and incompetence.
