Gary Colombo, Robert Cullen, and Bonnie Lisle in their book “Rereading America” feel that commencing college is a very disturbing experience. So many things we have to deal while starting college, but the major challenges are expanded difficulty levels and higher expectation which we are not familiar over the years of high school. In order to solve this issue, we have to remodel ourselves by taking up the challenge and rethink about our strength and flaws. To succeed in college we need to be mentally strong and dedicated towards our goal.

In American society, higher education has become the standard and all over the country young people are being told just how important and necessary this extended learning is. The question is: why?

He gives the readers a personal account of self-discovery amidst the depravity of academics, and emphasizes that this is one of the most important parts of the college experience.
Professional competence means that an employee is open with informing the supervisor when he or she is unsure, or not confident in their skills to provide services to certain people. The certain people can be based on different diagnosis, cultural groups, sex, etc. Or perhaps an employee may lack experience or educational background in a certain area, therefore, is not competent to provide services. According to APA (2010), Section 2.01 boundaries of competence indicates that psychologists will provide services, teach, and conduct research with populations and in areas only within the boundaries of their competence (APA, 2010).
Professional Statement A couples of my professionalism strengths are organized, reliable, ridiculously punctual, and helpful. I constantly am keeping lists about the tasks I need to complete. Sometimes, it’s hard for me to get out of my routine, so keeping consistence helps. I’m reliable because if I’m asked to do a task it will get done in one way, shape, or form. I like to arrive 10-15 minutes early, so I can collect my thoughts and make sure I’m ready to tackle the task. Part of feeling important and accepted is helping others (it not be a part of professionalism, necessarily, but I think it’s part of how I carry myself). You, Dr. Burrow, can capitalize my strengths to make a strong impression in Field Experience I is if there is a change

Every organization works for its ultimate goal of attaining profit and to enjoying a good name in the society. Organizational success depends upon how the organization manages the information and process for attaining the target. For that the organization should have its own strategies and technologies for adequate knowledge management.
In the course of their lives, many individuals acquire various kinds and levels of knowledge that organizations value. Additionally, through education, experience, training, and natural predisposition, some individuals are able to demonstrate different and greater skills than others. The worth to the organization of the individually acquired and job-required knowledge and skills is identified through job rates of pay” (Henderson, 2006).
Work and Professional Experience Ed Allen, an author of creative fiction and helpful nonfiction, supposedly wrote "To change is difficult; not to change is fatal" (Thinkexist, 2012), while another said ""Change is hard because people overestimate the value of what they have and underestimate the value of what they may gain by giving that up" (Leading Thoughts, 2012). These quotes grandly express the premise behind agency. Of course many other could be gathered, people are elegant with regard to the need for constant personal change which leads to growth, but they are not necessary to understand the concept. Agency, as described in the book The Mind at Work by Michael Rose, is the sense that a person can move forward and grow in their personal lives or help initiate growth in someone else. It is a striving to become something and make the world a better place than it would have been if the individual had not lived. Rose (2004, 186) says ""young people 地re realizing how important work will be in their lives, how it will frame who they are and what they can do in the world. They are desperate to be somebody, to possess agency and competence, to have a grasp on the forces that affect them." It is an interesting facet of this concept that a person does not have to willfully produce this effect they can be an unwitting agent as was George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life but in general the individual sees a need and actively seeks to provide for it whether in their own life or
There are many personal characteristics that can affect a person as an individual and his professional success, namely openness, ability to learn and adapt etc. These personal characteristics can sometimes make a person successful and sometimes doesn’t. As I spend more and more time as a professional, I perceive that there are few characteristics that are essential for professional success: namely ambitious, creative and adaptable. These characteristics come out in many different ways. Have you set your goals? Have you decided the path you have to take to pursue your goal? What are the sacrifices you can do to achieve your ambition? How much can you think out of the box to resolve a particular issue or bring new idea to the table? How

Some might say that attending college is a huge step from being in high school. People will probably say that “It 's a whole nother ball game” or maybe that it 's 10 times harder than any other academic curriculum that you ever learned from any other teachers at your secondary school. These comments and experiences are things that troubles a young 18 year old’s mind such as myself and have someone like me think about the worse and how i could struggle in subjects setting myself up for failure. In this textbook I have found that I could get past that by having a creator mindset, which helps me be able to solve problems and learn how to collect, organize, rehearse, and evaluate my own academic skills plan so I can become a success not only in school, but also in life. The novel On course by skip downing could help out any freshman in college, people in the upper classes that find college impossible or want to learn new strategies that could help them beat the stereotypical stronghold that takes over their mind and causes them to become a victim. As a high school student I am overly enthusiastic that I took part in this course and learned the shortcuts to a easier college life and find this book to be a valuable treasure that i have been blessed with. However, it is some things in the on course book that I find pretty irrelevant.
