Support can come in many forms. Emotional and moral support can help us work through difficult times or difficult decisions. Training, education, job-shadowing and mentoring are forms of support that can give us additional experience or knowledge. Support can also come in the form of a physical resource such as computer software or hardware, state of the art equipment, a lunchroom or even a slide in the office. When we’re at work, having the support of our manager could also be something we value. If support is something you highly value, look for opportunities and environments that are known to provide the types of support that are important to you and remember that support is always something you can ask for.
