Looking at training manager vacancies? This can be a good start to an office career. The skills imparted to you will prove valuable on your resume and working experience of this type never goes out of style. Read on to find out how to get the most out of this kind of job.
Be an apprentice
Practical training The fastest and most effective way of learning is learning on the job, better known as apprenticeship. This does not have to be formally stated in your job appointment letter but if you want to be a training manager, taking this perspective is advantageous to you. Learn from your superiors As an apprentice, identify your superior(s). Do you have more than one superior? Whether you are aware or not, you will be picking up skills from them, especially the ones closest to you. If your superior is successful in his job or career, you benefit. If you are eager to learn, this is a good sign too.
Improving your office skills
Basic office programmes A great part of your training manager job involves work in the office. How good are you at basic office computing skills? Here are some questions to consider: 1. Are you familiar with the word processing and spreadsheet programmes? 2. What about other office programmes (like power point, project management, forms, etc.)? Basic communication skills Communication plays a part too. Has this ever been an issue to you or relating to people comes naturally to you? Consider the following: 1. Can you report to your superior(s) as required by them? 2. Can you relate to your fellow co-workers?
Your attitude counts
Having a desirable attitude Has anyone ever accused you of having an attitude problem? This is not conducive to management training and development and indeed, the opposite of what is described in your training manager job description. Here is a list of what is desired: 1. A positive attitude 2. A willingness to learn and do the tasks that have to be done 3. Turns out reliable work in reasonable time Being a good staff and colleague As a rule of thumb, perform the duties entrusted to you as expected and prove yourself as an assistant who can be relied on. Couple this with good communication between you and others and you have carved yourself a place in the office. Who wouldn't welcome someone like this?
