How to Work Well on a Group Project

College brings with it several different examples of real life. The whole point of college is to educate you on a particular subject so that you can go on to learn even more about it in the work force. You may notice as a college student that you are required to work on various different group projects as well as individual assignments. This is important because that’s how many career jobs work. You often have to work with a group of people to create a final project. While working within that group, you will have individual elements that you are responsible for. Working in a group can have advantages and disadvantages, largely weighing on the personalities and work ethic of the group members.
