The Employer's Expectations for Your Collaboration
"Collaboration" is a term getting a lot of attention in companies these days. The word means "working together with other people to reach a goal or solve a problem"—it's that simple.
Employers say collaborators are essential in today's workplace because very few jobs exist for "Solo" workers. Here are some characteristics of collaborators:
The skills needed for collaboration don't come naturally to some people. Three situations that might keep you from being a collaborator are described below:
1. The New Kid on the Block.
New people to a job or task should listen more than they talk so they can become comfortable with the work to be done. Not only is listening smart, but it provides answers to many questions. After learning the details needed to become an active collaborator, it's time to jump in with suggestions that might be helpful.
2. Anxiety from Working with a Group.
One reason "Solos" like to work alone is the stress they feel from being called on in groups. "Solos" hate to be put on the spot unexpectedly and may respond by shutting down, becoming defensive, or coming up with a fast answer that doesn't fit the situation. If you suffer from this group anxiety, prepare yourself on topics being discussed and make notes so you can refer to them when called on.
3. Not a Big Picture Person
Collaboration usually is associated with the big picture or the next great idea. If you aren't a big picture person, but can share expertise and practical assistance for others' big ideas, then collaborate by being supportive.
Action: Is collaboration easy or hard for you? Can you say "Yes" to each of the bullet points? Do any of the three situations described include you? What can you do to become a good collaborator before applying for a job where collaboration is required?

Today's Career of the Day: Homeopathic Practitioner
Homeopaths are holistic healers who practice a 200-year-old system of medicine based on the principle of similars. Those are substances that can cure symptoms similar to those they produce.
This medical theory suggests that illness is caused primarily by an imbalance in a person's energy system. Illness is not simply from outside causes. Homeopathic practitioners look for a single homeopathic medicine to treat the whole person -- mind, body and emotions.
As part of the GEOPATHS (https://geopaths.org) project, the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS) at North Carolina State University will host a series of open house events to provide opportunities for high school to learn about research and careers in the geosciences. They will have opportunities to interact with faculty from MEAS to learn about how geoscience is being applied to answer local, national, and global research questions.
Their first open house - Discovering Earthquakes, Exploring Planets and Finding Lost Graves - is scheduled for 5-7 PM on November 9th in Jordan Hall on the NCSU campus. This are intended to be small group, hands-on type events where students will get a chance to do something, rather than sit and listen to people talk. Details of this and later events can be found here. Any science-friendly students who might be interested should apply!
The open house events are just one component in GEOPATHS programming. Each year we will also support Exploring the Earth Summer Camp, a geojourney field trip, and summer workshops for educators (support provided). More details of these programs will follow on the website in the next few months.
