Is a working knowledge of technology part of your skill set? It probably should be...Posted on Mon, 05/13/2013 - 10:28
In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, Sorry, College Grads, I Probably Won't Hire You, Kirk McDonald, president of PubMatic, an ad tech firm in Manhattan, makes the case for a basic knowledge of information systems as a part of every student's skill set no matter what field or major they're interested in pursuing. Engineering, fashion, education, finance, geology, medicine, public service -- it's relevant everywhere today. It's as necessary a part of an education as being able to write well. Just ask anyone, for example,who has had to work with a tech firm to create a website whether it's for a businessor a personal blog. Great advice and something for high schoolers to consider now and as they look at colleges and what they offer.
