    Ep 40 Why an Additional Degree is not Enough for Career Advancement

    Ep 40 Why an Additional Degree is not Enough for Career Advancement

    The common mistake immigrants make even when you're highly-skilled is to immediately get another degree even they recently had one after moving. 
    There is nothing wrong with that! At the same time when you dig deeper, you are only dealing with the symptoms and not the root cause of your lack of opportunities. 
    If you are struggling to use your degree and skills to the fullest capacity as you envisioned, then maybe you need a different approach.
    Before you get another degree in the new year, listen to this episode.
    To end season 1, I wrap up with a solo episode on:

    Why having another degree abroad is not enough
    What you need to do with the one you have
    How you should plan for the degree if you have to get another degree
    Ways to get other degree(s) or certification to improve your career advancement. Want more strategies? Download the free E-Guide here https://www.visibleatwork.com/start
