Dedication – Dedication is one of my stronger assets, and is shown through my punctuality and willingness to
do additional hours at my job. This is part of the reason for me being asked by a manager at Sainsbury’s to
return for a second time as a part-time employee.
Team Work – I had to work in a group for a module at university, where I had to meet deadlines and complete
a mobile application accompanied by a report. As team leader, this meant I had to make sure members were
completing work and helping those who required it. The team work here was demonstrated by the 1 st class
grade I received.
Problem Solving – My problem solving ability improved a lot especially throughout my placement year where
the various projects I was involved with required problem solving skills, for example developing a way to
update handheld scanner applications from a remote location.

Software Engineering BSc (Hons): Nottingham Trent University (2012-2016)
My first year introduced me to the foundations of computing and the
System Analysis and Design
analysis and design phases of the development lifecycle. The year gave
Computer Tech. and Maths
me a good grounding in computer science, as well as teaching me
programming with half a year’s worth of Python and C++.
2nd Year - Overall Grade: 2.1
The second year improved my C++ knowledge through two modules, one
of which introduced me how to test software and develop in a team
environment using revision control software, while others introduced me
to Java, C# and ASP.net and SQL. I was involved in a group project where I
created a mobile application and report. It very testing as we lost three
group members, but really developed my time management skills due to
the additional work load.
Software Design and
3rd Year – Predicted High 2.1
I am predicting a high 2.1 grade for my third year, but am pushing for a
1st. There are modules that will teach me about Android development, a
group project focused on advanced analysis and design, and software
engineering with C++ programming. My final year project I will be creating
a system in C# to help with the tracking and auditing of safety devices
within a warehouse environment, which will entail the development of a
desktop and mobile application as well as an SQL database.
