Entry-level workers enter the communications industry every day. Armed with an education, and maybe a few internships, they’re ready to get to work.
But the transition from school to the real world isn’t always a smooth one. Newbies are bound to make a few mistakes.
Here’s how the responses stacked up:
- They don’t ask questions or request feedback (47 percent)
- They think they know it all (35 percent)
- They don’t get to know their co-workers (7 percent)
- They’re afraid to take on extra work (5 percent)
- Other (5 percent)
While most seasoned pros might think new workers should ask more questions and request feedback, entry-level communicator Jeannette Garcia offered some insight: “I don’t think we’re afraid to ask questions, just that we don’t know what [sic] the right questions to ask.”
What do you think? Should company veterans do more to mentor entry-level workers?
