Sometimes skills become obsolete.

Every job requires some skill, training, knowledge, then experience joins in the game. Continuing to grow and learn is so important to move up in a career.

In high school, I took classes in typing, bookkeeping, and shorthand – Along with drafting, electronics, and woodshop. Some of those things learned have been key in my career path – others (shorthand) NOBODY uses - my adult offspring have no clue what it is.

Do you have an obsolete skill?

If Notaries play an important role in your organization, then so should your Notary management program. Create alignment across your Notary team under a consistent set of skills and knowledge. Developed by the National Notary Association, their online training makes it easy to manage your team’s development.

As an employer, it is in my best interest to require Notary-employees to complete a qualified course on the rules, requirements, and professional standards for performing notarial acts.

Notary training for your employees

#WorldTheaterDay and other interesting careers

My son (the one with the blue feather in his hat) is graduating from college, and his dream is to be a musical theater performer. As we celebrate World Theater Day, I think about all those exciting careers, unusual roles, and unexpected jobs. What is your profession?

Anxious, excited and a little out of my element. I left a career of 16 years last December. Job before that was a 10 year stint. But I feel confident and positive that all work out just as it should. #jobsearch #hiring #careerdiscovery

Business Analyst / Department or Small Business

I've been in the field for so long, I learned at each new job I got. OJT. Just get your first job and work it from there. A degree probably doesn't help that much. If you can show you can do the job and it documented on a resume. You're in.

I really appreciate Abhishek's in-depth reply and Amber's point that the title is a broad cover. But if I understand the question correctly, the target is to become a data analyst. With or without a degree, you must present yourself as someone who is trustworthy, competent, and driven to results. The person hiring a first-time data analyst will have hidden questions they are screening for. Awareness will give you the edge.

  1. Are you self-managing so that you will not become an embarrassment to the person two steps above you. Displaying this imbues trust.

  2. Can you listen carefully enough to the details in order to ask clarifying questions? This ensures to the interviewer you have sufficient ability to execute the role. The right questions more than the right answers demonstrate competence.

  3. Are you sufficiently researched for the particular interview? Data analysts can show they are not a waste of time by having facts, trends, and comparisons for the position ready. They're hiring you... a natural for the job.

Best wishes Mohammed. And after you get in, learn Power BI quickly. -Max
