Somebody said they were "just a training worm" on one of the threads. I was going to reply to that comment but I can't find the thread now.

Anyway, what I was going to say is that there is no such thing. With all the precautions companies take when bringing in trainees, it's an accomplishment to get accepted into a program. Yes, it's definitely entry level, but if you aspired to be a Rocket Scientist, there is still an entry level for that profession. Hold your head up high, be proud of your progress, step by step. Observe those who have proven their professionalism and imitate them in the way they dress, converse (except the curse words), drive, and any other thing you observe that contributes to their success.

If you are a trainee, you are not a worm.

Hey guys, thanks for the kind words. I completely agree. In any situation, a person should strive to be their best. I fully intend to follow good role models. I'm slowly learning who those people are on this forum. With help, of course!
