Job Seekers' Guide To Learning In Style
(read to see this week's special on our Working Style Analysis tool)
If you’d like a job - any job, or just a newer, better one - you’re not alone. Sadly, in this job market, promotions often go hand in hand with upgraded technology skills. Today's technology advances at an astonishing rate, with the amount of new information doubling every two years. Blink, and you’re left behind. Take a year off work to have a baby and when you come back they are using different software. Become a stay-at-home mum and, before you know it, your child’s school project involves technology you’ve only ever heard of.
Arthur C. Clarke once said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Learning according to your own unique Learning Style or Working Style will make updating your computer skills seem as easy as saying Abracadabra. As long as you do the course and the tasks in accordance with your learning preferences, and not against them, you will have a much higher chance of success.
Of course, you have to be realistic about your goals and expectations. “I want to program in C++” may not be the right goal four you if you've never programmed before.
Be specific. “I want to get better at computers” is vague and difficult to measure, while “By the end of the year, I want to be able to write a PowerPoint presentation” is a clear, achievable goal.
Set your goals with a positive attitude. Stay excited and passionate about your goals.
