This is a question that is on an application of a company that takes on first year graduates near where I live. It's a software company and I myself am studying computer science. I have decided to apply for the post but would like some information on my answer to one of the questions. Here it is.
Firstly, Computing was a subject that always interested me. Spending so much time using computers, gives me a great understanding of what good software is capable of. I’ve been taking advantage of the internet by using and finding out about useful programs and websites which can benefit me.
The family computer was purchased around ten years ago, It wasn’t long before I had a laptop after that, and since then, I’ve become heavily dependant on the web and on my smartphone.
Growing up over the years, watching lots of different computer related videos and being part of an online community made me realise that computing was for me. I would watch lots of videos of new software review’s to see if I could find anything that would benefit myself.
Keeping on top of current tech news via podcasts, via websites and via apps familiarise me with new computer related terminology that are used. I felt like what knowledge I had gained, give me a headstart when I started my diploma in computing, prior to the degree I am studying now.
I have always been quite computer minded and my friends would see me as a resource of knowledge when it comes to troubleshooting any computer related issues, or wanting advice on a new computer system.
Whilst studying my diploma in Computing (Software Development), I knew that it was definitely the subject of work that I could see myself in for the rest of my life. I enjoyed learning about the different modules, especially the software development modules . Finding out how apps were created, and creating simple ones of my own inspired me to go on to university and extend that knowledge further.
All of the above are what had driven me to apply for my computing degree.
