As part of my job at Think College I got the opportunity to attend my first mentor orientation as the new employee of Think College. I was asked to do a presentation at the orientation and I was excited to do it. During the orientation I gave a presentation on the Social Media we use at Think College and demonstrated one of them on the LCD screen. I talked about Pinterest and that is where I demonstrated how to use this particular site. During my presentation I felt comfortable and totally confident for doing a great job on my presentation. This gave me a chance to see myself grow as the new employee of Think College and this can help me improve on my presentation skills for the future.
There is a textbook called “30 Ways to Shine As a New Employee,” and it’s also a guide to success in the workplace. I decided to start using this textbook for my new job as the Think College Dissemination Assistant. I found four skills I can apply to my job, so I’m taking notes and observations in a notebook. The four skills are the following: Benefiting From Praise and Criticism, Choosing To Think Positive, Breaking Bad Habits Of The Mind and Clarifying Performance Goals. These skills take time to develop, but if I keep on it they get easier. I wanted to use this textbook for my job and I knew I wanted to choose four specific skills to focus on.
The first skill I’ve been focusing on is Clarifying Performance goals, so I can understand what I’m supposed to be working on for my job. For example, one of my work goals is to check on all social media sites for Think College and to make posts on them. This particular work goal is making me write down the amount of views we get on each of them. I’ll keep everyone updated about my progress in the textbook.
1. I have been working on a video for 3 months and the video is called Think College-The Road Less Traveled. This video is about the campus life and what’s it like being a real college student. I went around to all of the students and Mentors and interviewed them about campus life and what’s it like being a real college student. I will keep everyone in the loop
2. The next thing is I’m grateful for my mentor
3. Feeling good about myself and having a great day.
4. Helping out a friend by sending an e mail about the Career Center schedule.
This weekend I will finally get my Professional certificate after two years in the Think College Program at UVM. I’m very excited to hold my very first professional certificate and I know it’s going to be emotional for me. This is going to be a bitter sweet moment and it’s going to be fun.
I want to say thank you to Bryan for all of you amazing support and friendship throughout these past two years. Thank you for taking a chance on me for the Think College Program. Thank You Bryan Dague.
