If I Would OWN a Company, WHAT Skills Would I Expect From MY Workers In 21st Century!?

programmerman-animatedBecause of ICT there are sooooo many NEW possibilities to use with the computers and the internet. Just imagine that a company owner should employ people for each special application, NO WAY! (S)He wouldn’t have enough money to afford it!!! So it is necessary that <===> the 21st Century worker/employee would be an all-rounder! <===> An all-rounder WHO comes straight out of school and from whom the business/workforce could profit directly!!!

WHAT would be these skills the business/workforce will need!?

First of ALL it SHOULD be an AWARENESS about the Cyber Security problems WHO could happen and WHO could destroy a company and/or a companies reputation! <===> Forewarned is Forearmed! <===> is the BEST protection as it is anchored in the mind! WE will discuss this in the next chapter in depth!

Sometimes it is necessary as well to edit some text in a Word (or else Open Source) document and to use ALSO photos in these documents: SO… WE need to have knowledge about <===> Copyright <===>, photo editing and publishing as well as the how-to to transform these documents into a PDF.

A company, to stay competitive, needs ALSO to know WHAT is going on on the global market and needs to be up-to-date with latest NEWS, WHAT would be BETTER than making <===> curation <===> about it and to share these knowledge internally in the company through an intranet!? SO, my employees SHOULD know how to make curation which THEY could use as well for THEIR OWN learning by using a PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management <===> https://globaleducationandsocialmedia.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/pkm-personal-professional-knowledge-management/.

AND as WE as a company need to be up-to-date by using ICT WE SHOULD ALSO being able to create a blog from where WE inform OUR customers about WHAT is NEW in OUR company and eventually report ALSO about warnings, awareness about some products, as well as through OUR blog informing OUR customers through a NEWSLETTER! Those are part of a 21st Century orientated company!

AND didn’t WE forgot something!? WHAT’s about <===> Social Media <===>!? WE as a competitive company SHOULD ALSO be present on Facebook AND on Twitter, isn’t it!? SO… OUR employees SHOULD know ALSO to handle it:

Priority: My Employees SHOULD be Cyber Security Savvy

programmerman2First of ALL it SHOULD be an AWARENESS about the Cyber Security problems WHO could happen and WHO could destroy a company and/or a companies reputation! <===> Forewarned is Forearmed! <===> is the BEST protection as it is anchored in the mind! It is called <===> Proactive THINKing!

Searching on Google and/or on other Search Engines (allowed in the company or NOT) will happen and could infect the computer and EVEN the whole company IT infrastructure WHEN an employee doesn’t know WHAT s(he) is doing!!! SO… Better is that the employees know WHAT are the dangers and my company as well SHOULD have installed on ALL the computers different awareness and protection software, here my advice:

WHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Well, I will encourage all youth and also adults, seniors, oldies to become <===>Life-Long LEARNers <===> and staying Up-To-Date with their knowledge, especially concerning their skills in ICT, called NOW <===> #eSkills <===>! In the modern world YOU will change YOUR job probably +/- 12 times in YOUR working career, it is very rare to stay life-long in the same job and/or same company!!! SO… The workforce is looking for people with ICT skills which YOU mostly didn’t learn at school, right!? 

YOU won’t have (mostly) the time to learn by visiting courses, right!? START to become Life-Long LEARNers by LEARNing on YOUR OWN pace, by becoming <===> Autodidacts <===> Self-Directed LEARNers. YOU are able to, I did it, so can YOU!? 😉

I found a job because of my ICT eSkills and I am STILL LEARNing on a daily base routine for beingUp-To Date with my <===> Professional Development <===>, even being retired NOW! THE pleasure of LEARNing!

I did THE <===> ICT PracTICE <===> and THAT’S WHAT the workforce needs!!!

Find out WHY and How-To.

When I was 45 years old I became unemployed (I was a manager in electronics at that time…) and I was struggling to find a new job, NOT easy at all for that age 😦 I accepted even to work for 45% less money earning (got adjusted by unemployment agency to 100%) and to change my daily suit wearing to a blue collar suit to make sure to have a job again… During that period I was following a lot of courses. In 2002 I became an ICT Course Instructor” by having followed pedagogical courses (April to July 2002) from “eLuxembourg” (certificate FORM/03/2002/017). YES, with 47 years old I studied Pedagogy for four month to give ICT courses, very hard, BUT I did it! I found my vocation, my passion, where I gave pedagogical and andragogical (Adult Learning / Andragogy) courses to people from 11 to 79 years old for 9 years before I was out of the system (because of heavy health problems) and became retired.

NOW, even being retired I STILL give online courses and I am very active on Social Media Twitter, with blogging  on WordPress and with Curation.

At the time WE called it <===> Do It Yourself <===> TODAY there is a NEW name for it, it is called <===> The Maker Movement <===>, ONLY the name changed but it existed already more than 40 years ago 😉

Actually, there is a NEW Contest (I love challenges) where I applied and got accepted! Check the video below please and if YOU love it, give me a “Like” please as “Like’s” are part of it as well as views on the video, the winner will be the one WHO has most “Like’s” and page views!
