Being and staying an educated person is critical in today’s world. It is important to be educated and to develop a personal academic comfort zone to be able to keep up with technological advancements occurring in not only in our work lives but in our personal lives as well. To do so, you need to commit to being a lifelong learner.
The initial degree you earn will help get you your first job, but it’s being a lifelong learner that will enable you to keep your job, get promoted, earn a higher salary, or perhaps qualify for and seek a better job in the future.
In today’s workplace, to stay marketable to employers and to remain valuable you need to stay on top of industry trends and technological advances in your field. It’s important to always keep your job-related skills current. Many people often lose jobs because they don’t. Don’t let that happen to you! Always take advantage of any training opportunities your employer offers and be aware of those colleges and vocational schools in your community that offer courses for you to upgrade or gain new skills.
