From their office (complete with co-workers, a telephone, email, employee handbook, film/video handbook, boom box, VCR and inbox), they use available resources to quickly learn what tasks to do and how to do them. In order to succeed, students need to take an active role helping out as a team member, prioritize several demanding tasks, meet deadlines, make decisions and solve problems under pressure. The boss gives periodic feedback on specific areas of their performance. Students have the option of extra practice to improve weaker skills.
