Professional experience or professional degree, what is necessary for a successful career
The core survival of a human depends on how fast he manages to learn the tactics required to ensure his survival in the world. Presently, a lot of importance is given to the accomplishment of the conventional system of education, that is when a child is born, he must follow a proper established procedure of the education by attending elementary schooling, then moving on to college and finally, to a professional university for a professional degree, which is supposed to help him in pursuing his dreams and to reach his ultimate goal. But as a matter of fact many individuals are not so privileged enough to obtain a proper procedure of 14 or 16 years of education due to their personal issues or financial constraints. It is an ultimate fact that there are no free meals served, a price tag is associated with everything that one needs to survive, and specifically a good quality of professional education is just a dream for an individual in many countries of the world. The alternative solution of this problem is to be found in non-traditional way of learning, where fundamental importance is focused on the practical usage of a particular domain rather than the theoretical explanation of a profession. Let’s suppose a student has just graduated with a professional degree in mechanical engineering and there is a boy who is a mechanic at some shop. Superficially they both knows the technicalities of their field; how to operate and repair a vehicle, so as in terms of professional performance, both are weighed on the same scale as both know the art of how to complete the task. But reasoning it on a broader point of view, the sophistication, elegance and delicacy acquired by a professional student will open more paths of opportunity for him in comparison to a highly trained professional. On the other hand, a highly skilled professional can be more elusive because of the exposure encountered by him in interacting to a diversified group of people, so as to understand that his qualification is more practical than theoretical in terms of profession. Other key factors, which directly contribute on the success of a professional are rather personal than professional such as communication and interpersonal skills, empathy and intelligence. The utilization of these qualities impacts exceptionally in the life of a professional. Achievement of a professional degree or highly skilled know-how of a domain is not enough for professional success; every aspect of both personal and professional attributes should be taken into account.
