The first six months of my traineeship have flown by; it’s something I have mixed feelings about. On the one hand, I’m closer to being able to put everything I’ve learnt into my first paid position and starting my career in conservation (hopefully). On the other hand, I only have six months left of this incredible experience, working with great people.
Something I don’t do enough is reflect on the knowledge and experience I’ve gained in this amount of time. I’m the sort of person who once they’ve learnt something new focuses their energy on the next topic. It’s the reason I decided to do this blog, so that I can really look back at the amount I’ve learnt and enjoyed.
Before I talk about the highlights of the traineeship so far I want to talk about the type of jobs you should expect to do on a regular basis because they make up such a big part of your learning experience.
