How many years has it been since you graduated from high school, or college or university?
For some of you, I bet it has been quite a few years. And, for these people where it has been many years since graduation, you may be thinking that you do not have to learn anything new or take any more courses.
Life Has a Way of Telling You Different.
You may have found yourself cast off by your employer and when you go out to the marketplace to offer your services, you find that you are not able to find work.
Do you think that just maybe it has something to do with your qualifications?
Several Things that You Might Consider
One of these is to look into a different career altogether where you can take your qualifications and experience and transport these to another job. In this case, you are offering a series of experiences that relate to the new job you are seeking.
On the other hand, you may have to look into taking upgrading courses in your specialty area, or you may have to examine the possibility, like many have done, to start a totally new career path. If this is the case, you will have to consider going back to school full-time, or on a part-time basis while you find some other kind of work that can pay the bills.
Or, you may need to consider the possibility of taking something you really enjoy doing and turning that into a business. But, starting a business takes money and time to get your business up and running and time to make a profit. If you desire to start a business, you may have to still go out to work for someone else and then plan to go into your own business as you become financially stable again.
As a lot of us have found out, graduation only means that you are ready to keep learning, to keep your skills advanced and growing because you never know when you will find yourself out on the street.
Continuous learning isn't just a matter of something that is interesting to do - it is . . .
