by Ron Kurtus (revised 22 June 2017)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why should you bother talking to strangers?

You should be aware of strangers bearing gifts

The more people you know, the further you will go

Only to strangers if you need directions

2. What is wrong with telling exactly your job title and leave it at that?

Most job titles are boring, unless you put out oil fires or are a rock star

There is nothing wrong, because you are telling the truth

Because then the other person wants to tell what he does

3. Which is the best description for a Help Desk Technician?

I work at the Help Desk and take a lot of phone calls

I'm a Help Desk Technician, but I really want to get into upper management

I'm helping to save my company money by providing information and assistance to our customers

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Advancing in your Career. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
