I haven’t run a business for many years, but when I did, these were the qualities I looked for when it came to hiring and moving employees up the corporate ladder to management.
These days a minimum of an associate degree is required in many businesses to get hired and move up the corporate ladder.
Unfortunately, most of these subjects aren’t taught in traditional colleges. So how does one learn these skills and earn this degree in organizational professionalism?
The only place this education is available these days is in the various branches of The United States Military. However, the U.S. military itself isn’t normally considered to be an officially recognized accredited institution of Higher Learning.
