Real World 102: What Life Hasn’t Taught You Yet

#InternPro chat real world 102Last week on #InternPro we talked about what college doesn’t teach us about the real world. Tonight we’re going one step further…

At 9pm ET, #InternPro talks about what the real world hasn’t taught us yet about the real world. You know, that stuff we all wish we knew a long time ago… but seems to come from trying new things, making mistakes and though experience.

Because no matter how educated we are, it seems like we learn a lot from the School of Hard Knocks.

Here’s what we will be asking members of the community…

  • In your post-college life, what has surprised you most? What do you wish you had known sooner?
  • In my career so far, I wish I would have done more _______ and less _______.
  • How do we know what we don’t know? Is the “school of hard knocks” just part of reality… or can we skip a grade? 
  • We talk a lot about mentors… how much help have they been to you personally? What have you learned from them? 
  • Your thoughts? “The power of relationships is lost on young professionals. Invest in the people around you.”
  • At some point, many find themselves in a career pivot. What is your best advice for making a big change? 
  • How do I keep learning enough to stay professionally relevant  AND work AND live a fulfilling, balanced life? 
  • The #InternPro genie has granted a wish: you can learn anything you want. What one thing would you choose? 

We hope you can join this week’s conversation… we know it will help you get real world ready!
