Training Position

After interning for one semester, I jumped right into the trainer position. My good friend and co-worker Patricia Persaud and I developed the official Faculty Commons recruitment and training manuals. We worked on both the content and design of the whole package, with the guidance of Professor Jordan.

This summer will be my fourth semester recruiting and training new interns. From the in-person interviews to the actual 2-week training program, I’ve learned many things from the new interns. Being a trainer doesn’t mean you are always teaching or demonstrating something for the trainees. You could also be learning from one another because after all, we work as a team here.
