Getting the best gig after Uni

sethThe skills that you are rewarded for at University are not the skills that get you the best job after you have completed your degree.

Seth Godin points out in his blog today that the ‘best gigs’ want you to see the online trail of magic you regularly create. Where is your  history of generous, talented, extraordinary side projects? Are you an expert in something that actually generates value?

None of these things are particularly difficult to learn, if you are willing to be not very good at them before you’re good at them.

You won’t learn this at Uni, but you do need to start while you are there. Perhaps begin by following Seth’s blog.
