Sad, but true...and a definite career opportunity!

I was a bit saddened by this CNN story, Execs who are tech dummies seek secret training, but certainly not surprised. I think I have run into more than my fair share of computer-phobic executives over the years. The fact that there are still so many people frightened of computers is not a good sign, though. Perhaps we, as high-tech workers, need to be doing more.

Of course, the fact that these executives are looking for help is wonderful. The fact that they don't feel that they can go to their in-house staff is a bit disheartening, but I can understand that, as well. Sometimes it is simply easier to learn from an outsider who doesn't have business issues with you.

As mentioned in the article, executive training could be a way to build your high-tech career. I am always writing about the need to look to non-traditional areas to build your client base or your experience level. This is a perfect example.
