BUS 400 - week one :

In this discussion, you will introduce yourself to the class.

In your initial post, introduce yourself and address the following:

● Provide your preferred name if it is different from your name as shown in Brightspace. ● Define your professional identity by describing your current and/or past professional

roles. ● Share some of your professional goals.

In your replies, select at least two peers' posts that sparked your interest, and get a conversation started. If you need some ideas, you may ask, "Do you have any big projects or career goals in mind?" "What does your day-to-day look like?" "Any advice you can share from your lessons learned?" These are just some examples of conversation starters; you may have alternative questions that will help you connect with colleagues.

To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric.

Sally Navarro

Hello everyone,

My name is Saurily, but I prefer to go by Sally to make it easier. I reside in South Florida. I'm pursuing my BA in Business with a concentration in Human Resources. I have a passion for helping others. This is my last term at SNHU before graduation! I am excited and ready to see what doors will open. I have been working for my current employer for 15+ years and looking for more growth on a personal and professional level. My current position is as a Human Resource Generalist, a little of everything under the Human Resource sun. This can be from recruiting, onboarding, offboarding, employee recognition, etc.

As my next short-term goal, I plan to focus on taking my SHRM. This will also give me the additional fundamentals to excel in my career. As well as help me align with business strategy to create a more conducive work environment for my team.

I am looking forward to these eight weeks! Good Luck everyone-

Karie Lamb

Hello Class,

My name is Karie (she/her/hers) and I am currently a T3 (or supervisor) at an Amazon

Fulfillment Center. I have been with Amazon for three years; I started as a regular Amazon

Associate or T1 and I got promoted last December. I work in the CAP department (count and

pick). All my associates know how to pick or how to do some kind of inventory (aka count). I

have over 50 associates that I supervise. Before Amazon I was a Certified Nursing Assistant.

My BS is in Business Admin concentrating in Organizational Leadership, I would like to

use my degree to move up at an Amazon. The current plan is to stay in my position where I am

for a bit though, learn a bit more before I do that. I would also like to take a Six Sigma

Certification course, as Amazon is big on Six Sigma Lean.

This is my last class, kind of excited, kind of nervous. What will I do with all my time

after eight weeks? Maybe I will see some of you in NH in a couple of weeks!
