Rayte’a Long Journal #8 In class we briefly discussed body language mistakes to make in an important meeting with people. Body language like slouching, looking down during a presentation, glancing at the clock, and invading another person’s space are all things that you do not want to do. I have already become accustomed to not making these mistakes since I’ve been in college. My coach is always sure to point things she sees as disrespectful, and I work to avoid these minor mistakes. Going into the future, the list of bad body languages, is a list that I will harbor. I will be extremely aware of my gestures if I ever have to attend group meetings for work. Also in class, we talked about the proper ways to give and receive business cards. I also learned how to place business cards if in a big meeting with all new faces. I have not been in a situation similar to the one explained in class by Professor Jordan, but I anticipate I will be one day. As in class, I will have to place the business cards on the table with respects to where people are sitting. This way I will not lose track of who I am talking with, and can carry conversation on smoothly. Lastly, we were given a list of things we can do to anticipate the pitfalls of life. This very detailed list is of dos’ and don’ts’ following graduating. I have been forewarned of majority of these things included on the list. For the most part, my parents and mentors have done a good job guiding me. One thing from the list that I will be able to take away and apply throughout my life, is to be sure I specialize in a job where no one can replace me. Also, be sure to get a degree in something I already have a job waiting for me in.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
