At the end of my professional career, I want to be recognized as someone that made positives differences in the lives of the people and the organizations that I was associated with. I know I will have to work hard to get this recognition, and I’m willing to put forth the necessary effort. I intend to approach everything I do with positives attitudes, lots of enthusiasm and a desire to “make the differences”. I am majoring in Industrial Management under the Manufacturing Engineering option. Upon graduation, my immediate objective is to find a job where I can learn as much as possible. In this phase of my career, I want to build a strong base of knowledge and experience. I also want to gain some specialized knowledge in manufacturing but I do not want to become so specialized that I am no longer flexible. Achieving my short-term goals will prepare me for my long-term career aspirations. My short-term goals have no salary constrains. I will relocate anywhere regardless of salary in order to put myself in a position to gain knowledge and experience. My long-term goal would be to get to the top of corporate ladder. It would be nice to do this by climbing straight up one ladder but most likely I will need to jump laterally from ladder to ladder to continue my assent. Ideally, I would like to end my professional career as a CEO of a large, well-known corporation. I would really get enjoyment out of knowing that I make an impact on the day-to-day lives of everyone my company influences
