Skills I’ve Learned

It’s hard to know where to start with this–I have learned so much at Romberg.

The first and most important thing I’ve learned is how to conduct myself in a professional environment. It’s one of those things that is never taught over the course of one’s normal schooling, but is invaluable later in life. Skills like communicating with colleagues–being clear and concise without sounding curt can be a challange–or being able to take care of your own work without the handholding that goes on in high school, are all extremely valuable skills to have.

I’ve also learned how to conduct research. How to keep track of exacly what I’ve done, be precise in my measurements, and skilled in the use of all the machines. But it has also taught me how to ask the important questions. Some things just aren’t interesting to look into, and being able to pick those out is a skill that (hopefully) will continue to serve me as time goes on.

Romberg has taught me many things I will never forget.
