Using your resources

April 18, 2010

In the first few weeks of our practicums, we may find ourselves overwhelmed or confused. To ease the transition, don’t forget about the resources we have available to us:

  • Colin has told us numerous times that he will be available for any questions we may have. Forgot the difference between a strategy and tactic? Why not ask one of our old instructors?
  • We have numerous textbooks that can help us, although truth be told, I haven’t cracked about half of them. But I’m sure the answers are in there somewhere! CP Style is probably the best book to take with you.
  • Our notes are a useful tool to have ready. Going to be doing a lot of writing at your job? Why not take your binder full of labs as a handy reference?
  • Don’t forget, we have each other! Forgot how to do something? Send a friend a text or a Facebook message. I am here for any of you if you need assistance!
  • Ask your supervisor. They know you are there to learn and that you don’t know how to do everything. They will help you so you can do the best job you possibly can.

So if you are feeling overwhelmed when at work, just remember we are all in the same boat. By using any of the above methods, you will be able to do the best job you can!

Good luck everyone!
