Can Your Client Study?

  • Few attractive career paths exist that do not involve periods of study to gain entry to them.
  • Most people who have gained entry to some career area will find that they have to keep learning. Some will find that repeated formal training or education is necessary. Some will find it necessary to choose new careers when their old ones disappear.
  • Fortunately, the ability to study multiplies a person's innate talents and abilities. Not only does the ability to study effectively make you able to grasp more material and to grasp it more effectively, the knowledge and skills that you gain can make you more effective and marketable.
I would say that this implies that career developers can legitimately discuss study skills with clients. I need to watch for items that might help career developers with this.
