We always have to keep on learning on what we are doing. If you stop it, you are out of it. Most young people in Myanmar think that learning and studying within university is enough for a life time to keep on running for any kind of business. Then they failed. It is because they stopped learning. If we keep on it, we always are never getting late in our field.
It is clearer in IT field that many new kind of software and hardware devices are being created by human daily. Business models which are made upon them is always need to get changed. Then people always have to learn what others doing and make the new thing and update and upgrade themselves. For example, people in Myanmar, in last three years, didn’t know about Facebook too much and didn’t think about advertising on it and creating Facebook page on it. If you are already in IT field and creating pages and running some campaign on Facebook, the companies will choose you for their project or business. But if you are only getting focus on your blog, you will only become a blogger and will never become a professional Facebooker, Social Media manager. Blogging and Facbooking are related sometime and we can combine it. I am not only saying about blogging and Facebooking. There we also have many issue and career to show you example.
If you are running on traditional marketing campaign, you better learn ,what people call, digital marketing. It’s better if you can write HTML and CSS basically so that you know basic of every web. Better if you can learn and know more about programming so that you will never get cheated by competitors. You don’t need to know everything detail which are not in your professional subject. But you need to know that in general at least. If it is too much related to your business, you need to know as deep as you can. If you are keep on learning everything today, you will never get late and will always be ready to accept any kind of challenge in your field.
