Through different PMEs and on-base classes I have taken, a similar statement was made, “Even if you don’t learn much, at least you will meet some new people.” I saw plenty wrong with this advice. First, why go into something close-minded as if there is nothing I can learn? Secondly, why do we wait until a class to meet new people. Sure that is when we are exposed to others, but we are constantly interacting with other agencies every single day. Take advantage of these moments and learn about the other person and what they do. One day what you learned about that person or from them will work to your favor.
