Education and Careers

Andrea Smith and Siri Phaneendra offer an informative episode about education and careers. In Trends without Ends, reporter Jack Pawlakos provides essential tips for students who are doing online-learning. For remote learning, make sure to take control of what you are able: get up at the same time, schedule your day, get noise-cancelling headphone, turn off phones, create a personal study space, take a break, and get outside to embrace nature. Most online courses from professional companies use the latest in technology to make the learning process most efficient. Be patient with teachers. The hosts interview Mark A. Herschberg, author of The Career Toolkit, Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You. Networking, negotiating, communicating, leading, career planning—all skills critical to your career success. But did anyone ever teach them to you? The Career Toolkit will help you master these skills and yield outsized returns for your career and your income. It’s a multivitamin for your career! Mark emphasizes practice, practice, practice. He also talks about why online voting will never be safe plus a discussion on streaming. Reporter Jay Jackson of Jays Sports World talks basketball and informs us how education leads to growth, knowledge, skill, perseverance, and success in all realms of life. Education teaches patience, wisdom, and intelligence. He discusses the Lakers, basketball, and how the pandemic has affected his education.
