Your education isn’t over at graduation
While some of us may be only a few years from completing our formal education career, that by no means that your training and education is anywhere near completion. Some companies may take continuous formal training and education less seriously, but many will look to find employees who are willing to constantly learn new things and update to the changing market.
In my own internship, the company I intern for takes strong measures to ensure that its employees are constantly keeping pace with the changing financial landscape and are at least foundationally competent in the wide variety of products and tools offered. While some of these positions may not use this knowledge on a day to day basis, senior management still sees an educated workforce as a critical element of the organization.
Whether it be an MBA, industry conferences, or current events; it’s unlikely that many people can maintain a leading role in any enterprise without keeping themselves informed and educated about the industry and function they work in.
