Questions from an Interview Today

Q1.) “I noticed that you’ve worked at Profound Ideation Inc. and Free Code Camp. How did your career path take you to this job with this company?”

I believe in self-learning, self-teaching and auto-learning. Most things in life can be learnt by reading, watching, hearing, writing / doing and experience which comes with multiple failures and not giving up. With the internet and modern technology, anyone can be a self taught learner, and as time goes on, this is going to be the norm / standard in the future of education.

I have been thinking deeply with regards to the “specialist vs. generalist” argument and come to believe that anyone in 2018 can become a polymath instead of a mere specialist or generalist.

For the longest time, the debate has been between being “A Jack of All Trades or a Master of One.”

To answer the question, I started Profound Ideation Inc. many years ago, before I started my current role at freeCodeCamp where I volunteer my time, energy and resources to help the next generation of Web Developers.

I started Profound Ideation Inc. without any formal education in engineering or guidance of teachers and / or professors. Instead, based on self determined learning, practice and self directed learning, plus independent work, I was able to learn new skills and draw upon knowledge from multiple sources and innovate and build a successful business.

Q2.) “What are the major components of your job on a daily basis? What areas of the business are you responsible for?”

As a Strategic Marketing Consultant, Rainmaker & Digital Technology Architect, I am responsible for the whole business. If anything goes wrong or not according to plan, I am to blame. I take full responsibility of customer satisfaction, client facing, relationship, networking, business development and growth of my companies.

Q3.) “How do you see this job changing in the next 10 years?”

Being a Strategic Marketing Consultant, Rainmaker & Digital Technology Architect, I am at the crossroads, as I see AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Machine Learning) and VR (virtual Reality) + AR (Augmented Reality) as well as IOT (Internet of Things) growing in influence and demand. My new job will be to help aspiring entrepreneurs to ideate, launch and develop their businesses in the years ahead, as technology will continue to outpace the ability for humans to continue to complete with machines and robots, AI and software in most areas of the work and live across the world.

Therefore I have began to work on a new International Synergistic Business Model for people who are, will or were displaced by the Emerging Cognitive AI & Automation Revolution. … In other words people who are or will be(come) unemployed / unemployable, and either going to or have already lost their job(s) because of automation, machine learning and AI & Cognitive Systems.

I have been working on a free online course, where I seek to share some knowledge, thoughts / ideas, comments on topics, my experiences and my point of view as well as what I am doing to continually learn.

More details can be found here: https://international-entrepreneurship.teachable.com/

Q4.) “What’s one thing you wish somebody would’ve told you before going into this field?”

That it never sleeps, never ends and that I should never give up until it’s GG.

Q5.) “What’s most important to prepare for a role like yours?”

Passion for Innovation!

 

Recommendation from Kevin Chan

Daniel is a very down to earth person who’s very willing to help you out. He took the initiative to run and manage Free Code Camp in the Markham region and has organized a wonderful community to help teach others how to code. I would highly recommend Daniel and can see him fit in any environment.

Recommendation from Henry Mak

I have meet Daniel for a very long time. He always envision big plans and ideas to make this world a better place. To some people, his visions might be bold, but for him, he makes it happen. I first meet Daniel when he was a web content developer. He has always been very creative with his work/designs. He push beyond his limit and creativity to give his best work for his clients. He pays close attention to every small detail and he makes sure every detail is perfect. Because of that, many people like to reach out to Daniel and he often receives great feedback from his clients.

In addition to his work, Daniel is also a very unique charismatic leader. He transforms every environment with his positive energy and personality everywhere he go. He always inspire and empower his team and students to the best of their abilities; more importantly, he is always happy and he never gives up on anyone. I got the privilege to spend some time with Daniel in his Free code camp class, where he kindly gave up his own time each week and gave us a chance to learn how to code for free in the Markham area. I have nothing but praise for this man.

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss further in relating to Daniel. I’d be happy to discuss in greater detail on my experience working with him.

Recommendation from Ryan Zhao

Daniel is always looking for the next big thing, with cryptocurrency and block chain technology, he saw an opportunity and got his foot in the door. He’s paid attention to the news and how this technology will evolve.

Now with the prices of cryptocurrencies and interest in block chain tech booming, Daniel is looking to build on what is to come and has connected people in the GTA who are already knowledgeable in cryptocurrency and block chairs tech.

My LinkedIN Connections Projection for the Next 400 Day Thru 2017-2018

By. Daniel Lim, Marketing Strategy Consultant & Digital Technology Architect

It’s the weekend and it’s actually relaxing and encouraging to explore the data and analytics, specifically regarding my LinkedIN Connections stats and Projection for 2017 – 2018.

While numbers are not everything, and I don’t want to purely focus on the details, others have made a great deal about social media engagement. And it’s about getting a big following of the right people. Remember: Quality vs Quantity.
The following are estimates by way of a simplified Projection for the next 400 Days, let’s look back and see how true these numbers are in, say … 400 days or so:

FAQ:

Why 400? … Because it’s the number of days between Day 1 (Aug 7th, 2017) to Day 400 (Sept. 11th, 2018)

Why 105? … Because it’s the number of NEW Connections I’ve added between Day 1 (Aug 7th, 2017) to Day 5 (Aug 12th, 2017)

How to Delete Recommendations

Editing or Deleting a Recommendation You’ve Written

Once a recommendation has been sent, it cannot be edited. However, the sender can delete the recommendation and create a new recommendation to send to the same person.

Important: Only one recommendation can be sent to each connection. If the recipient hides a recommendation, the sender cannot send a new one. The sender must first delete their original recommendation before sending a new one. Learn more about how to hide a recommendation you’ve recieved.

To delete a recommendation you’ve sent:

  1. Click the  Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  2. Click View profile.
  3. Scroll to the Recommendations section and click the  Edit icon in the top right corner.
  4. Click the Given tab at the top of the pop-up window.
  5. Scroll to the recommendation you want to remove and click Delete.
  6. In the pop-up window, click OK when asked Are you sure you want to delete this recommendation?
  7. If applicable, create a new recommendation.

Notes:

  • The recipient won’t be notified that you removed your recommendation. It’s just removed from their profile. If you create a new recommendation, the recipient will be notified.
  • If you’ve hidden your recommendations, and you don’t see the Recommendations section on your profile, you can access them by clicking the  Edit icon in the Recommendations section and selecting Show recommendations you’ve hidden.
