Your placements may seem quite a ways from now, though it is worth starting to think about your pivotal, placement journey. Be receptive to possibilies and remain flexible. You might have come into your chosen program because you want to work with a specific service group, organization or cause. Remember, though, that the potential in your chosen field is much more than a particular specialization. Learning is about your own mindset as much as it is the setting. Keep yourself available, up to new and unplanned experiences and you will remember your placements all of your professional life.
