Which Is the Best Path For Your Personal Progress?
Some people like a classroom where they can engage and study with other students and be taught by teachers or mentors. Others, prefer to do an internship whereby they can learn through experience. Both of them are important in different ways and add to our professional career. However, which is the best way to achieve personal growth? Being a student or an intern? Well, we hope this article will shed some light on the subject.
Being a student:
We were born interns. Our parents taught us how to take our first steps, way before we occupied classrooms in schools and universities. But in class, we learned to become students, where the atmosphere of joint studying was perfect for thinking, contemplating, writing and engaging with other students and teachers. We need such institutions, such settings to enable focus and a flow of learning.
Our future career choice demands that we gain knowledge about certain subjects and professional work areas, in order for us to succeed and meet the expectations of others and of ourselves. Developing our learning skills in school will help us develop our learning skills in our next new and exciting job.
Being an intern:
What internship basically boils down to is learning through experience. This type of education is more about gaining hands-on experience which facilitates learning. As an intern, you will explore all different areas of the work, including your own responsibilities and learn to practice them in real time. This is much like taking part on a Gap Year where you take workshops and a chance to practice working with your skills and knowledge. It is a great way to develop your skills through trial and error. Make mistakes now in order to succeed later.
