As I hoped, I have already been a member of GI (Griffith International) Mates. Today, I had a very impressive training for the coming orientation. It is not just like to tell the members how we need to provide for the new International students, but also it has shown the responsibilities that people need in the life.
Being the member of GI Mates is not only to be patient, friendly, and easy-going, but also be enthusiastic, responsible and professional. Personally, enthusiastic is the main point for everyone who wants to be successful in their lives. People need to be responsible for everything thing they have done. In this stage, I want to say some about the professional, cause most people think GI Mates cannot be the professional about the information which they give to the New International students, but what I think is they need to show their professions when they provide the services. We need to be professional in the communicating skills, and the services providing. It is quite like the Customer Services in a company, a vital department to the company. The same as the GI Mates, we like being the Customer Services in Griffith University, but our target market is just the New Griffith International Students.
From the training, I got to know some people who I would working with as a team, and we gonna support each other for 2 weeks. They are more friendly, and quite communicated. From that, I can see why the GI Mates is that successful in the Griffith. Personally, I joined this organization is not just for the money the University gonna paid us, honestly, I didn’t know the GI Mates could get paid for their work. What I think is there always something more than the money itself. Like working as the GI Mates, getting the communicating skill is the main advantage of it; working as a team, you might be find how important the teamwork is, cause members need to support each other to make the tasks more successful . As a business student, these two mains are the key I need to improve in my uni life, even when I get to work. However, the it gives us this opportunities and practice.
I do not know what gonna be from the next week, but I will try my best to make myself to be better, and contributing to the GI Mates gets better and better, as I worked before, the new students are looking forward a hand from us, and they trust us, so, I will use my real experience to make my work to be the best. Also, as the same when I worked in the office, I will let more student to know the GI Mates, recommended them to this society, and courage them to join us.
GI Mates is the start of my working and it will be lasting as longer as it can in my life, I am very proud of being the member of GI Mates, and appreciated all the experience the leaders give to me.
Thank James, Stephanie for running this organization and training for us, and also thanks all the GI Mates members in advanced for supporting me to make our work more successful.
