Mary Jean Monday: Embrace the Unexpected

Embracing the unexpected is a critical skill.

Being able to stay flexible not only shows that you are proactive, but it also lets you experience opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise get to have. Take Mary Jean’s experience, for example.

“It’s something completely different!” Mary Jean exclaims in this week’s vlog post, as she describes a new task she gets to do.  Later in the vlog, she states: “Internships can give you an opportunity to explore all sorts of different things.” keepcalmand

Completely true. Stay flexible and embrace the unexpected experiences that come your way. You never know what you’ll be able to experience unless you welcome unexpected opportunities with open arms.

This week, Mary Jean discusses how she’s learning to do  just that through her internship at Walt Disney World. What she says is true for any job or internship, so watch this week’s vlog post to find out more!
