“how to get a job a google”—job skills for the 21st century
Monday, February 24, 2014
Here is a quote from Thomas Friedman's OpEd piece in the NYTimes this weekend:
“For every job, though, the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not I.Q. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information.
The world only cares about — and pays off on — what you can do with what you know (and it doesn’t care how you learned it). And in an age when innovation is increasingly a group endeavor, it also cares about a lot of soft skills — leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability and loving to learn and re-learn. This will be true no matter where you go to work.”
Another unintended plug for Waldorf Education!
