Opportunity knocks! The economy is at a point where the number of job openings equals or exceeds the number of people unemployed. What gives? Some call it a skills gap, and that may explain some of the demand for more specialized jobs.
As the economy changes and opportunities (and careers) come and go it is imperative to know what increases your value in your chosen career field. Specialized knowledge only goes so far. There is something far more critical to your long-term career viability. The secret to greater earning power is understanding your natural abilities. It involves understanding how you solve problems and approach opportunities, how you best communicate and learn, and what work environment you best perform in.
Using that as your “foundation” you can then target training and career opportunities that increase your value to potential employers. Employers pay you to add value to their organizations. Better know yourself and be able to make the connection to your employer (or customer). Never stop investing in your most significant financial asset – your earning power! Warren Buffet calls it your best investment!
