Welcome to our first-ever leadership blog. The national TSA motto is “Learning to Live in a Technical World.” This motto means that what we do in TSA prepares our members for the professional world, as well as giving them an advantage over their peers in the fields of technical knowledge, professionalism, problem solving, and much more.
However, we, the state officer team, thought that we could help you to raise this level of preparedness, so that you can feel more confident that your experience as a TSA member is helping you become all you can be. So we, the Tennessee TSA state officer team, are proud to be launching the “Learning to Live in a Technical World Campaign."
Throughout the year, we’ll post monthly blogs that will cover a wide range of topics that many of our members have expressed interest in. The next three blogs, for example, will discuss how to utilize what you’ve learned through TSA to make your college experience outstanding. From researching for your perfect match, to filling out college applications, to picking classes, you can use your TSA experience to make the most of your college journey.
The most important aspect of your adulthood begins upon graduating college: starting your career. Unlike a summer job where you might earn some weekend spending money from, a career is a lifelong commitment that you should enjoy. You should earn enough to pay your bills and still have money to spend on things you enjoy. The December blog will introduce you to job applications, the interview process, and how to achieve your dream career.
After high school, the degree of freedom you’ll have in making decisions about your time and money increases exponentially. Our January blog will help you understand how to properly manage both time and money. Knowing how to balance everything in your life will help you have the best experiences after high school possible.
As we reach February, be sure to check for our blog discussing what it means to be a TSA alumnus. This publication will provide information on what life is like after graduation and how to remain involved with the Technology Student Association. We will be interviewing various TSA alumni for this blog so that we may display experienced perspectives on this topic and share the most valuable tips.
At the 34th Annual State Conference in April, we will be hosting interactive leadership sessions to help reinforce the skills we’ve covered throughout the year. We hope that you will check back regularly, and that you will participate in our blog discussions. Together, we can take our state association to the next level!
