“I liked being a marketing assistant. I learned that updating the database was less complicated than I expected. My supervisor and my Northstar job coaches taught me how to complete each step. I still made mistakes sometimes but I learned that I should ask for help and use strategies like taking notes. I also used my phone’s alarm to remind me to stop for breaks sometimes.”
