Advice for young professionals that applies even more so to seasoned professionals
There is a lot of change around and the pace of change is increasing.
I suggest to you the new blog is every bit as useful for seasoned professionals as for the young professionals.
Walk with me through the first three posts:
Technical skills aren’t enough. Professionals need
…a professional’s brand & message, networking, relationship building & nurturing, team building, social marketing, working with a mentor, leadership and professional use of digital era technologies.
That applies even more for those of us who have been out of college for, uh, a while.
Are you going to live for yourself or are you going to help other people who in turn can help others? Will your life have made a difference after you are gone? Forget that – will your life have made a different to anyone two years from now?
The question asked to ponder what direction to take in the next few years, especially after you’ve been out of college a while, focuses this same idea: What do you wanna’ do when you grow up?
Hmm. The article applies to seasoned professionals as well.
Completely different skills are needed to succeed today compared to 10 or 15 years ago.
Hey, seasoned professionals need to hear that even more than the professionals-in-training currently in college.
I’m thinking the audience of this blog is primarily seasoned professionals. Looks to me like the prof’s new blog is something we should all check out. Add it to your RSS feed.
P.S. Read that last sentence again. It’s a pop quiz. If you don’t understand it, there are some new skills you should pick up.
