If you stole my sunshine...

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You'll never know dear, how much I love you...please don't take my sunshine away."

The pre-mentioned was a song that my grandmother used to sing to me when she was rocking me to sleep. Ironically this week we were given the assignment to show what we could do in a world without broadcasting. For example, if we weren't BC Majors, what could we bring to the table of a job market. This may be the only assignment we've had that has really shaken me up. I've kept a pretty steady hand throughout the capstone experience, except when Mr. Weaver threw us a curveball with this one, it kind of tripped me up. No Broadcasting??? What would I do??? Would I be meaningless??? No chance! You see, the way I've been programmed to think is when there is an obstacle in your way, you have 3 choices. Stop what you're doing, and give up, avoid the problem by going around the obstacle. Or claw, scrape, climb, destroy your way through/over the obstacle learning everything you can so if it ever shows up again, you'll know it's number. Guess what choice I took?
If there were no Sports Broadcasting/News I have skills I can bring to the game that would help me succeed. First and foremost I have confidence. Confidence without cockiness is key, because no employers hire employees that are cocky, yet at the same time they don't want a pushover either. They want somebody to show them that they can do the job, and do it well, and when I do things, I make sure people know it's a quality product. Secondly, I would bring maturity and stability. It is important for an employee to show his/her employer that they are reliable, and have the maturity level to think on their feet without losing their head. I'd also bring my education, life's experience, and diligence. However, I'd also bring something extra to the table that others may not even think of...humor. A sense of humor is key, I don't want a best buddy to be my boss, however, initiating and knowing a positive relationship in the workplace has never done any harm for anyone and shows people that you are a real individual, and a thinker as well.

Hope this helps everybody, because thinking of this has made me more inspired than before. Until next time...I'm DJ Yokley.
