Part Four: Monologue

“When I first started this job, it took me quite a while to learn the ropes. I guess many new-comers have the same problem and have to ask their co-workers for help. I didn’t know how to use the system or where to find things.  On my first day I wandered around for twenty minutes before I could find the copy room. Fortunately my co-workers were very helpful and supportive, so it didn’t take me long to get the hang of it. I just kept working hard, and in the end all my hard work really paid off.  Things are going just great!”
