Every start has an end, and each end represents a new beginning.
I can still clearly remember how it started. It all began with the girl who is late for class and got mixed up with her class venue, trying to find the correct classroom and decided to follow another girl who seemed to be heading for the same class. Not only was she filled with the panic, but also the anxiety of meeting new people as well as what to expect for class. And the story begins thereafter when she finally stepped into the class with a friendly teacher ushering her to a seat for ice-breaker games.
And after 3 months of learning the various professional communication skills as well as working with her fellow classmates, things have come to an end. Simply put, what are the gains?
To me, it is not just learning about what is taught in lessons but also in practice about bridging interactions with people. Definitely, it is through the lessons that I know the proper way to write a proper business letter, cover letter, resume, etc. Although I will not say I know exactly how to present myself in a splendid way, at least I would know the criteria to look out for when I am writing any one of the above. It is also through class that I had gained a lot of insights and motivations from the real-life experiences shared on interviews and prospects of life (Thanks to Brad and classmates). Nonetheless, it is also through the course that I had learnt about my classmates’ creative ideas and that I would constantly try to improve myself and learn how to jump out of the box and comfort zone that I tend to reside in. To sum it up all, it has been overall an inspiring yet motivating lesson learnt.
However, what is learnt and forged in the lessons should not be placed with a full stop as the class ends. I believe this is just the beginning of a constant learning and upgrading process and putting what is learnt into practical applications. And before I close this post, I would like to say the following to the classmates.
“Hey, let’s keep in contact with each other and organize an outing!”
And finally, adios!
