The tech staff tells me that Lonny Butcher keeps breaking the “N” key on his computer. If you are a GEB student in one of the professional development courses, help him out by doing the assignments you say you will do. That way, Lonny won’t have to respond with that key when he is reading excuses about why you didn’t do what you were supposed to do and that you require special dispensation. Unfortunately, none of us are that special. Your career plan is not as solid as you think and while you may think what he is telling you is common sense, the data shows that it’s not common for people to do what they “know” is sensible. The purpose of education isn’t knowledge, its action. Learning to be a professional means doing what needs to be done, every day, whether you want to do it or not. That’s how you make a good impression here, get noticed, earn an internship and eventually land the career you seek.
So, do our tech team a favor. Do what you say you’re going to do on that career plan. Put what you think you know to use. Do something with it that will get you to where you want to go and save Lonny’s “N” key from overuse.
