085: Career Success Toolkit – Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You with Mark Herschberg | CTO | Author | MIT Instructor

In this episode, we cover the essential skills for success that no one taught you.

Meet Mark Herschberg, a software engineering and cryptography expert, author, career builder, entrepreneur, and instructor for MIT’s “career success accelerator.”

The truth is that your engineering degree was not designed with success at work in mind. Colleges and universities have tried to address the problem, but the root causes go too deep. And frankly, it’s not their job to help you succeed at work. That’s YOUR job.

You must develop these skills, and even more importantly PRACTICE them, if you want to accelerate your career!

We cover the best way to do that in this conversation. If you’ll implement what Mark and I share, you’ll see change and growth faster than you can imagine.

So press play and let’s chat… it’s time to optimize your career & life for what really matters!
