Today we have a guest post from Kayla Switzer’s Blog: I Failed the UFE! Now What? You can also get in touch through her web site at www.KaylaSwitzer.com. Feel free to contact Kayla if you have any questions or just want to vent! Kayla has experience with the CASB program in the West.
We are coming to the end of January and busy season is in full swing for most people. If you are really busy and stressing that you don’t feel organized for the UFE, don’t worry. Stop stressing! It’s okay to forget about the UFE now for a few months while you work hard during busy season. You shouldn’t be studying now anyway, it’s too early and if you do you’ll get burned out. Especially if you are also working long hours for busy season.
You can start getting organized when busy season slows down. Most people don’t have their schedule yet so you’re not alone. There’s lots of time this summer to study and work on weaknesses, so don’t worry about that now.
One thing you can start thinking about is how much time you want to take off this summer. It’s a good idea to take time off before you start studying so you allow yourself a bit of a summer before you start studying. I took a month off in my second UFE summer! It was such a great thing for me because when I started studying I was totally relaxed and rejuvenated and ready to study instead of tired and burned out from work.
As always, if you have any questions please feel free to email me through my website or at ExperiencedUFE@gmail.com. I love hearing from you, so keep the emails coming with questions and concerns! And if you’re looking for a mentor and you’re interested in working with me, I’d love to hear from you!
