As a team member, you will be more likely to:

  • Stay focused and on the right track, observing what works for others that accelerates the learning curve
  • Maintain a reasonable level of job search intensity. Each member tries each week to improve upon their previous week average numbers.

  • Pre-Meeting Preparation of Weekly Report. Team members will have to prepare their progress report before the meeting
