Unforgettable Training Experience -Hang on the original goal 2015-05-30 19:42:28
As a public servant, I always consider what my responsibility will be. Instead of dealing with the regular affairs, I try to create my own value for the whole government. The principle of doing the right thing is easier said than done. Finding ways is more difficult. Last year, I luckily got the chance to participate in the novice training course held by Civil Service Development Institute, Tainan City Government, when I was kind of lost in my original goal. Through the one-day training course, I found that I was more determined to be a public servant. Thus, I am happy here to share my unforgettable training experience.


A better environment for learning

This was my first time to go to Civil Service Development Institute, Tainan City Government. I was so excited to take part in the novice training course that I previously browsed the internet to get more information about the institute. The Civil Service Development Institute (CSDITN) is located in Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology. It is an interesting arrangement for the place. Then I got to know that CSDITN was built under the purpose of “University City” plan. Rather than spending a great amount of money and time on a new building for training institutions, CSDITN tries to create abundant resources, learning atmosphere, and excellent training environment, with the lowest cost and at the fastest speed. Therefore, I was totally fascinated by the training institute after understanding its history and meaningful background. Most of all, the atmosphere here often reminds me of my college life. I feel like a college student whenever I walk in the campus. Besides, I also found many word cards of English vocabularies in the campus, especially in the restrooms. That is a really smart way to intrigue students to learn English. In addition to the learning atmosphere, the equipment offered by CSDITN is high-class for me to use, including the portable computers. All in all, it makes me easily to fall in love with the perfect training environment. Sometimes, I dream of working here in the coming future. I believe that a good working environment will be helpful and beneficial to promote the quality of work.


How I can get from the training course

Going through one-year efforts, I gradually passed the national examination and got the certificate of a public servant last year. As a local resident of Tainan, I have great affections for my hometown. Thus, I am so proud of being a member of Tainan city government that I have great desire to do something for my country. Now, I work at civil affairs and humanities section of Nanhua District Office. There are lots of affairs in regional government, especially in the district office. Because of the shortage of labor power, almost every clerk has to be responsible for at least two affairs. Due to the heavy workload, I am usually at a loss what to do as a public servant. The situation is pretty different from what I have imagined in mind toward the life of a public servant. However, the instructors from the Tainan City government taught us how to find our own core value as a public servant, how to cope with the difficult
situations, and most of all, how to build a correct attitude. Firstly, find our own core values. During the long journey as a public servant, we must come across tons of difficult problems and complicated situations. It is not always lucky for us to find the correct answers and the right solutions. As a result, we may feel doubted and depressed toward our work. Worst of all, some frustrations may destroy our original determination and the beliefs we have been pursuing. At this moment, it is very important to ensure our own core value to cheer us up again. Secondly, know to cope with tough situations. Whenever we encounter any questions, we should be brave to ask for help. If we just neglect the problem, then it will not be solved forever. Unsolved problems will
cause more unexpected troubles. Last but not least, build a correct attitude. As a public servant, we have to provide people for best service, which is our mission. The government will get power when people trust it. In other words, we public servants should do our best in order to make people have trust. Without trust, the government cannot implement its policies successfully. Accordingly, public servants have to keep the correct principle in mind deeply all the time.


Apply what I have learned to work

Generally speaking, the knowledge we have learned from the books is not so simple to apply to the work. After all, theories only explain something, not everything. Turning the abstract theories into practical policies may take more wisdom and experiences. To my surprise, our mayor has led Tainan City to a brand-new future. I learned it from a series of movies made by Tainan City Government during the training course. More than this, I saw the vision of Tainan. I think that I am so lucky to bear the mission and responsibility to be a public servant. Even though my power is weak, I believe that I still can do something for my
country. According to the suggestions made by the instructors, we should be in the right direction as an upright public servant. Consequently, I could not wait to share what I had learned from the novice training course in CSDITN to my colleagues. I hope that everyone working in the district office should recognize their values and importance. Without the regional district office, lots of things will not be finished timely. Also, the central government also cannot achieve its tasks smoothly. Hence, everyone has his/her own value, which cannot be emphasized too much. From then on, I become more and more careful to my behavior and work. While forming any policy, the rights and benefits of civilians should be taken into considerations. Protecting, maintaining rights and satisfying people's needs are the most indispensable principles to stick on.

Conclusion

I really got a lot from the novice training course. It is very important to set up this kind of courses to guild the novice to the right direction as a public servant. When I feel lost in my regular work next time, I think that it will be a very good way to find the original goal and the core value back by attending the course. Once the core value is set up again, we public servants can proceed with the great mission for the country.
