Things are still moving at Discovery, there’s a job opening and I have to figure out a way to maneuver myself in to the vacant chair. Learning on the job is one of my favorite ways to learn a new skills. Unfortunately, learning on the job can also be very stressful! It’s strange to admit you don’t know how to do something which you were hired (though not paid) to do, but really thats what employment is! You take on new tasks, you learn new skills and you expand your scope of knowledge pushing your job further than you were hired to do because you want to move forward rather than stagnate.

My point? If there’s an opening at your internship, move forward, learn, ask and don’t be afraid to admit you don’t know how to do something. Once you’ve learned, you will know how to do it for the future.
