From College to the Workforce: How to Manage a Project Successfully
Understanding how to successfully manage a project is a critical skill in school and in the workforce. Improve your project management skills with these simple steps.
- Set specific learning goals. Why are you taking each course, and what outcomes do you expect? What does success look like to you? Establish a set of criteria to evaluate your success? What are warning signs you have to be aware of? Establish milestones to accomplish the goals you set for yourself. Who can you talk to if you are in danger of not achieving your goals?
- Work the material. Take detailed notes in classes. Review your notes, tie the new information to what you already know. What surprises you about what you discover? Test yourself to see how much you understand?
- Εvaluate your progress regularly. Are you on track with your courses? What kind of grades are you getting? Is it time to regroup to try a different strategy if the one you are using isn’t working? Do you need to get a tutor to help with any of your courses?
- Schedule all your activities. To manage your learning, schedule everything into your calendar, class time, study time, fun time, and so on.
- Make use of resources. At college you have access to many resources - libraries, tutors, professor office hours, labs, academic advising office…. Use the resources that will aid your success.
- Celebrate successes, even the small ones because success builds on success.
