KnowledgeBuilding up your knowledge and continued professional development is a good way of assisting with your career progression - whether it is in the early stages by helping you get on the ladder or helping you get a promotion or a client.
Knowledge is a commodity and any employee worth their salt should have both skills and knowledge. Do you have both?
What is the difference between Knowledge and Skill?
- Knowledge refers to learning concepts, principles and information.
- Skill refers to the ability of using that information and applying it in a context.
As part of your career development plan - you should sell your knowledge not just your skills.
This is an extract from Putting Pen to Paper's upcoming Career Development Workbook.
Discuss: which is more important in your chosen career - knowledge, skills or both in equal measures?
