Thank You For Calling, Could You Please Hold?

So, last week, the phones were ringing off the hook in the office. Which wasn’t such a bad thing considering the fact that I probably needed all the practice. Helping professors/staff is a whole different beast than it is helping a peer. I always get this nervous feeling as if I’m going to tell them something wrong or that the information I supplied wont be sufficient. But after a few phone calls, I did start getting used to the whole notion of helping a lot of these professors who Ive had classes with.

Here are 3 tips that I found helpful for young adults helping superiors or your professors:

1. Remember, they are there to work with you!

2. Confidence is key (just don’t over do it)

3. Don’t be afraid to let them know you’ll need a second opinion when you are stuck
They will understand if you are not entirely sure on a certain aspect of the problem you are trying to solve.
