I am writing to you today to extend the values a friend and co-worker taught me. My friend has been working with Wikipedia for a long time. He has learned so much, that he decided to share some of these tips with me. Now I am extending the favor to you. I am sharing with you openly about how you can really make a good mark during your time there. It doesn’t matter if you are considering this to be a career choice or merely a stepping stone, it’s still of value.
- Go on with a goal. Do you want to be a Wikipedia editor? Writer? Both? Figure out where you want to begin and pick assignments that suit your choice. Do not expect to be give out tasks. Any writer worth his/her salt will tell you, you need to take the bull by the horns. You can not expect some higher-up to dictate what you will be doing. These people are just there for support and questions. The rest is up to you.
- Once you figure out what you want to focus on, start off slow. Remember, slow and steady wins the race. Do not expect things to skyrocket overnight. They are not meant to. Be calm and relax. You are there because you love what you do, not because it’s “just a job.” If you have the latter mentality, maybe you should look elsewhere.
- Wikipedia is for those who love writing and editing. Plain and simple. If you love what you do, the rest will fall into place. Most people who love what they do do not consider it work. Do you have this same passion? Than maybe Wikipedia is the place for you.
- Here is one final note I will leave you with. Do not be afraid to try something new. This will only serve to build your resume. Look for tasks where you can build on your skills. Seek out advice from other co-workers in the forums.
