However, what college didn’t teach me is how the real working world works. There are a few things that college could not prepare me for that I’m learning at my first job at Bender/Helper Impact.
Even with my Communication Studies degree, my communication skills at work are constantly being tested and stretched. I’m learning the dynamics of working in a group and as a team player. While college work was mostly a solitary experience – writing papers, taking tests – I am never really working alone on the job. Everything I do goes through a review process and is refined and improved upon by various members of my team.
In my time here as an account coordinator, I’ve learned so much. My university gave me the building blocks for the real world, but it’s here at Bender/Helper Impact, where I’m using these blocks to form a solid foundation that will help me grow and succeed throughout my career.
