Job Skills I Wish They Taught in School.

11.30.2015

Here are some things that I kinda wish schools taught to their students:

  1. How to reserve a room in Outlook: Add room as a resource. If you don't get an accept from the room, you don't have it reserved.
  2. How to troubleshoot: Proving functionality of small the components which make up the entire system.
  3. How to evaluate a study: Has it been peer reviewed? Has it been published in a respectable journal?
  4. Statistical analysis: What makes an appropriate sample size, and how to actually calculate the odds.
