Career-Op: School Time -- now with MP3 audio "PodCasting"

** NEW -- MP3 Audio for your iPod or other audio player -- NEW **

RSS Feed with enclosures | MP3 (via FreeCache) | MP3 direct from WelchWrite.com

Starting this week, I am going to release each column in MP3 format so you can listen to it on your way to work, in the car or on your bike. You can use iPodderX (and other tools) to automatically download each weeks selection directly to iTunes and ready for import into your iPod. See iPodder.org for more info on PodCasting and more tools.

Look for a new posting each week and (hopefully) one from the Career-Op archives, as well. Subscribe to the RSS feed above to be notified automatically when new columns are available. --Douglas

Career-Op: School Time

by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine

Once I graduated from college, it was an easy decision to not return. Since I wasn’t programming-inclined, there wasn’t much to be gained from getting a Masters or Doctorate in Computer Science. Instead, I went off and joined the big world of business and have arrived at where I am today. This is not to say, though, that I have stopped learning. Instead I have spent my years learning about topics that interested me, developing my own personalized advanced degree. While it may not hold the cache of a MA or Ph.D, it certainly has helped to develop a decent career and an interesting life.
