This is the sentence I do not like the most.
When you say “it is JUST a training”, you implicitly convince yourself that:
- The job is not important,
- It is a matter of time and the experience ends,
- You cannot contribute to the company development,
- You are not the right person for the job,
- There is no need to make any effort,
- It is all about being present,
- You will not learn much.
It is a bad idea to start your professional journey with a negative series of thoughts.
When your boss hears you saying “it is just a training”, you immediately make all the mistakes listed in this section of the website, and; therefore, you send signs to your employer that you are:
- The wrong person for the job,
- A bad investment,
- Not interested in the job,
- Leaving soon,
- Wasting their time, and yours.
Instead, you need to try the following phrases:
- I am learning,
- I am a future employee,
- I am a professional student,
- I am being prepared for my job.
Most people I know using the “it is just a training” sentence fail in getting enough from their training. So, please do not be one!
