Career in Telecommunication World

For those of us who have a high motivation for working in the telecommunications world, and has spent time college to learn what it is Erlang A, Erlang B or GSM logical channel. Apparently there are many areas and loopholes in the telecommunications world that we can enter, either simply to deepen knowledge, gain experience, add up to future savings

1. Operator, This is a dream many young engineers, workplace becomes dream many scholars from both campuses domestic telecom-known to least known (hopefully this statement is not wrong CMIIW). Here the employee acts as the operator of telecommunications networks for customers directly.Engineer working in here a duty to maintain network availability, so customers can use the network to communicate voice and data with ease. But in addition to the primary task, there are a lot of knowledge to be gained, of course, because it acts as the owner of telecommunications equipment, engineers here have the opportunity to study the devices used (this does not apply to all positions, especially for engineers). Sometimes, engineers must be able to also perform the installation of telecommunication  own devices, if an urgent situation and not allowed to use the services of a third party (read vendors), then the engineer must be able to install it's own telecommunications equipment. No less challenging is the work of troubleshooting. This work is a tricky job, because if problems are not met are also the solution, then it is not possible we will find it frustrating to search for common problems.
2. Vendor, It's not impossible to become the first choice for fresh graduates as well, because the company's telecom vendors such as Nokia Siemens Networks, Ericsson, Huawei, ZTE, etc , knowledge and experience on offer is not a bit. It is no secret that in these companies, telecommunications science we can get very much. In this company we can learn the installation of devices, network optimization, to troubleshooting device that is installed. Probably not much different with a glance at your work huh? But remember, that the vendor can only learn one product alone.
3. Contractor, Can not enter into an employee of gold above two options? Do not worry, there are still places to work. Contractor is a company that worked on the project that won the tender by a vendor. Some of the areas normally done for example for the installation of base stations, installation of Micro Wave (radio transmission), Test Drive for network optimization, installation of new Base Transmission Service (BTS) towers, etc. Relatively large-scale contractors, typically include a project with a great value, so it is not rare for a contractor hired back some of sub-contractors to work on projects that they win the tender.
4. Sub-Contractors, A company is a sub-contractor under the contractor who worked on the project to contractors. Therefore, the scale of the work performed relatively smaller. Science that we get here may not be as much as in telecom vendors, but we can learn to very detailed, the work we wrestled. This is because the scope of the work we're in relatively narrow so that we are repeated every time we do it.
5. Supplier, Being a supplier of a general nature, but the telecommunications company though, requires a competent and qualified suppliers to supply goods and services to support the company's survival.
6. Outsource, A telecommunications company both vendors and operators would need to outsource labor to help with the work of an administrative nature to the technical. For example, an admin, this energy is needed to help the company's operations and continuity of work. Technical assistance personnel are also needed to help operations engineer in a telecom operator in the work of network troubleshooting, to maintenance and installation of telecommunications equipment.

Loving Child Wise Ways

How do you express love to children? Already tepatkah that way?Love is a complex problem. If not, we will not have so many poet or songwriter.
In the context of the family, the parents must have been like to express his love for children always seek happiness with her baby. They always want to be able to give praise and a warm hug, serving the needs of children, and, just maybe, buy whatever was asked of children. All done in the name of love.
However, the extent of expression of that love? Where is the boundary? When we know that we have too much love child? It's tricky issues. Many people have difficulty saying no to children. Especially when we know how that love is indispensable for the development of children, including the matter of physical health.
Money is not Everything. Expression of loving parents to children will affect the growth of the process. In the first five years of age, a child seeking reassurance. Is obtainable when he felt the members of the family loved him. Sense of security will further develop self-confidence and self-concept of children someday. Expressions of love that continues to be felt also teach children to empathize with others, and support the process of building trust on the individual child's other

But then again, it is possible for parents to love in ways that are less wise. This example happens when we put way too materialistic nature. Buy toys or items for children nonstop or whining is not always granted the right way. "Money can not buy love": we just remember that Beatles song.
The biggest problem with this disposition is that it can inhibit the growth of empathy in children. Child in time they will become less sensitive to the environment if it is too associate love with toys or souvenirs, even though too much flattery is also potential for similar impact.
Precisely when the parents are too exaggerated to express his love for children, making children accustomed to focusing on self-love. He will continue to demand and expect others to continue to give him love. As a result, the child was unable to foster empathic complex, namely the emotional ties with others.

Reasonable, Your Warm. So how to find appropriate boundaries? Indeed there is no science eksaktanya. The best way is with a little introspection. Ask yourself, how to express the privilege of a child in a reasonable manner, warm and special.
Be open! Looking at these examples, you might think, from where we can get an idea of ​​expressing love for children? How can an intelligent, fun and original? (Um, apparently not much complexity to express love when you were dating).
The more open an individual the opportunity to see the world and the ease of accessing information resources, helping parents to obtain references about child care ..Loved it indeed was the purpose of life. Other times we are tempted to once again shopping for kids toys.
