NOT ACA­DEMIC?

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Good To Know -

If you are in a cold sweat about the thought of hav­ing to churn out es­says and do re­search, don’t panic. “It’s not pa­per­work that matters but skills,” says Si­mon. “Sup­pose you take an online course in mar­ket­ing and be­come a Google AdWords prac­ti­tioner. Your boss will be de­lighted you have some­thing ex­tra to of­fer!” Take short cour­ses, at­tend work­shops and look for online cour­ses, too. As long as it’s rel­e­vant to your work, your boss will love you for any ex­tra ef­fort you show. Make sure you re­port any new cre­den­tials dur­ing your an­nual eval­u­a­tion! And when you write up your CV, men­tion one or two in your letter, and list the lot on the sec­ond page.
