STAYING AWARE AND COMPETITIVE

Be Aware & Informed to Keep Yourself Well-Positioned

The Business and World Economy is changing continuously, and each person needs to keep themselves current and of value to multiple organizations in order to have good opportunities not pass them by.  Some industries and many occupations come and go in the blink of an eye.  It is critical for each person to stay alert to new opportunities and being aware of those areas and skills that might disappear, taking classes and training that can keep your livelihood in safe standings.

This means most people need to keep their career skills current, if not advanced.  In fact, most may have to take classes regularly and often.  No slacking off and allowing your trade or occupational knowledge to collect dust.  Not only will existing careers need to keep current but to understand that some areas or professions could become obsolete.  Science and technology will be changing ever so quickly, and remember that your competition will become more and more intense.

Even some professions, which may be considered more steady or less likely to change as often, like “human resources”, will still be expected to keep their legal or documented records accurate and current.  Therefore, Human Resources Certifications may become a high priority where these professionals could be penalized if not up to date.  Currently, the HR Certification classes are available in multiple locations, and the instructors can make a big difference on the information taught and emphasized to their students.  As most know, it can make a big difference on how effective instructors can be about relaying critical information.  Central Piedmont Community College is one institution, who provides these classes.  Bill Crigger has been their instructor for multiple years.  Check with him regarding the next HR Certification class: bcrigger@compasscareer.com.
