Training courses

When I worked as an associate editor at a local business magazine, I had to take several training courses for different software and programs that my editor (manager) wanted me to learn. Those courses were invaluable and increased my knowledge in a lot of areas.

One of the course I thought was most valuable was the management courses that he put me through. Although my title was associate editor, I had the opportunity to perform a lot of duties that a managing editor would in preparation for me taking on that position.

Although some employees feel that training courses are an unwanted interruption of their time; the courses should be viewed as an opportunity to advance not only as an employee but as a person. Adding additional skills can be the difference between moving forward in a career and staying in the same place.
