Some tips from Gin & others on work-related stuff:

Tips when training in someone else's lab:

  1. Take photos of everything. you might do this at day's end, or through the day as you're shown things, depending on how much you're moving around - you don't want to waste people's time waiting for you to take pics, but you do want a clear visual record of what you've seen
  2. Likewise for the parts involved
  3. Ask people "how much did (eg setting up each incubation, etc) cost? How long did it take you to set up? what was the toughest thing about this (process...)? What was the most unexpected thing about (X Y Z)? What troubleshooting was involved?
  4. At day's end, take an hour to summarize (in writing) your thoughts for the day, read through notes you took during that day to make sure they'll be clear later, and identify unanswered Qs or newly-unclear things based on re-reading, to be sure you get the addressed the following day.
