“What the…why….” – that kind of goes through our head when we sit there staring at the screen with yet another rejection e-mail from that job you thought you’d have been perfect for. The interview went awesome – there was a definite vibe going on…so then what gives? Why do you keep receiving the
same generic “too many applicants – good luck for the future” mail of doom?!
Even the most confident person is likely to experience some nerves in an interview situation. In fact, research from our training partner Home Learning College shows that 55% of Brits think interviews are the worst part of finding a new job.
While it’s completely normal to feel nervous, the more preparation you do, the better you will be able to show why you are the right person for the job. Continue reading

To categorise computers in terms of size and speed is not simple
because of the fast growing technology associated with computer
engineering. However, computers are usually classified are follows:
(a) Mainframe Computers
This category of computers specially housed in big buildings are very large and majorly owned by large organisations in the past decades. Since today’s technology has led to the reduction in size and cost of computers, mainframes have virtually become, especially in Nigeria, machines traceable to Museums.
(b) Minicomputers Continue reading
Sir Charles Babbage
Though Sir Charles Babbage, a British Mathematician has been credited
as the first initiator in the evolution of today’s computer system,
however, the whole idea of the development of the computing
machinery has been dated back by many to the time of abacus.
remember the history of abacus? It is as old as 3000 BC and was
primarily used as a calculating device to aid memory.
The first computing machinery built in 1812 by Babbage was a model
called the Difference Engine to compute logarithm tables and print the
results. He later conceived in 1833 of building a better device capable of
performing any calculation such as addition, subtraction, multiplication
and division according to instructions coded on cards. This device was
called the Analytical Engine which consisted of most features we have
in our today’s computers. For example, Babbage’s Analytical engine
could store intermediate results in a memory unit. Though Babbage died
before the engine was finally constructed in 1871 by his son, he still has
the honour of being called the father of computers till today. It should
interest you to know that the first computer program was developed for
Babbage’s Analytical Engine by Ada Augusta Byron and she is today
remembered as the first Computer programmer.
Now, the whole history of computers is very loaded and that cannot be
covered by you in this unit. But you should know that the development
of technology has been closely associated with the evolution of
computers. While Babbage machines were mechanical in designs,
another computer called the Mark I was one of the first world’s Continue reading
