Recent graduates: Here are the three keys to success.

Success in the workplace is a complicated matter.  Nevertheless, I have found that there are three basic things that are characteristic of people who have successful careers.  Might as well label them as The Three C’s.

Competency – First and foremost, a person must be able to do the job, whether it’s flying a plane, driving a truck or operating a word processor.

Communication – The most successful people have an ability to communicate, especially to speak well in front of a group.

Connections –   My students want to argue with me when I tell them how important this is.  For better or worse, it’s a fact of life.  A better job comes from knowing people, expanding one’s network and especially displaying one’s work to others.
