Sam is a student at an indigenous college. He discusses his experience working with a team and studying in a supportive environment.

Being a co-operative team member as a student will give you valuable experiences that will help you be successful in your career. Whatever job you're in, you'll likely be expected to:

  • Support your team by completing your work as productively and effectively as you can.
  • Ask for help if you need it. Your team’s success depends on your performance.
  • Learn how to do some of your co-workers’ tasks. When the need arises, you can offer to fill in for them.
  • Get involved if you see an opportunity to help complete a project. Helping your co-workers and supervisor succeed at their jobs can be a good way to succeed at yours.
