Although it is really expensive, you learn so much more when you go to college out-of-state. I feel like I have really been able to grow as an individual, not just academically, but personally. Not only have I learned to manage my time efficiently, but I have also increased my communication skills greatly. Unfortunately, I feel like a lot of people are still lacking communication or even the ability to properly respond to simple questions through emails. Sometimes, it is okay, but other times, especially when the responses are necessary or impacting academics (and learning), it is not-so-okay.
Communication is not only key in school, but it is also key in the workplace. So, for anybody that is reading this, make sure that you know how to effectively communicate your thoughts and ideas through any medium (email, phone, face-to-face, teleconference, etc.). If you cannot, then it is really going to hold you back from lots of success that you could have otherwise. If you are not sure how to go about doing this, then check out this Workplace Interactions Survival Guide that I wrote, and you will know exactly how you are expected to act in the workplace. Happy Thursday!
