My Research Assessments have been a way for me to maintain progress within my field, whether it is based more on the development of background knowledge towards computer science or honing in on the practical applications.
I also have learned more about computer science in the real world by interviewing professionals that have jobs involved in the field. So far, I have interviewed a Sales Representative, CEO, Project Manager, Software Developer, and Database Manager, all involved in different computer-related companies. Here are my assessments of each interview:
My most recent and interactive form of research has been working with my mentor at his workplace. This way, I am able to observe how everything operates and I can get the input of a professional in my field. I have only done an assessment on one of my visits so far, but I have been on several.
