When we graduate from college we are all ready to take over the world, implement all the great ideas that we have, “improve the world”, make a change, be the best professional that we can be based on what we have learned.
Some students don’t know exactly what they want to do with their degree, their life and how to channel all the energy, some drift through a few jobs trying to figure out who they are and what they want to become.
There are some impressions about being professional and there is more to it than acting and looking professional. Getting paid is not one of them, there are too many volunteers doing a professional job for non-monetary retribution.
In the upcoming weeks we have great opportunities for professional development, a chance to further your knowledge and credentials on the field of interpretation.
The first week in February The Sunny Southeast will hold the 2015 Regional Workshop in Puerto Rico and at the end of the month there will be a Certified Interpretive Trainer workshop in South Carolina
Both are great opportunities to show that you are a true professional and will take advantage of professional opportunities to network, hone skills, further knowledge and hold a professional certification.
I hope to see you in Puerto Rico.
