I’m often asked what is the best course to take for those seeking to enter the work force. Obviously this depends in part on the profession, but I was never too fond of vague answers. So here is my take on the matter:
- The best course to get a job is public speaking. It will teach you how to confidently inform, persuade, and connect with people in both large groups and one on one.
- The best course to keep a job is creative writing. It will give you the discipline and communication skills required reach people through a variety of unspoken mediums from email and PowerPoints to business cases and even social media.
- The best course overall is a course of action. Keep learning throughout your career. Many people reach a goal and forget to set the next one. As long as you keep growing you’ll stay marketable.
