What I Did Today

I had an enjoyable day. We worked on a mock store clerk for BerkMart taking orders by phone. At first, I was taking too too long setting up my instructions and grocery page. Once in place, it was exactly the same as calling TV shopping networks, but in reverse. This time, I’m the CSR. It was fun and since that may be one my future job interests, I got some practice on doing it. We had a light day and were allowed to do other projects of interest or selected by the instructors.

What I Did Today

We were practicing our customer service skills today. By practicing being a cashier and a
customer at BerkMart we expanded our customer service skills. While you are practicing, you can gain new skills and refresh your knowledge.

What I did Today!

Today was very interesting conceptually, I created a nested LAN using VirtualBox and pfSense. it was somewhat frustrating that I could not get my Debian VM to connect as expected, however that afforded a good opportunity to do some Linux troubleshooting.

What I Did Today

I practiced taking a customer’s order for BerkMart. We role played getting all the items they wanted and processing the order. I did 3 accountabilities because we hadn’t seen the website yet when I did the first one, so I didnt know it was already on there. My second one was practical. But then Mike said it didn’t have to be practical so I did a 3rd for fun! I also researched Blue Shield for tomorrows mock interview.

What I did today

Today I added more entries to the Job Postings List. I applied for two jobs. I began more work/struggling with the Trailhead Salesforce tutorial. I am not sure why this is hard for me to grasp. The terminology is not very familiar to me. I’m struggling to the point that I have asked my grandsons to come over and help me out. Pizza and drinks are hard currency with teenage computer geeks.
