Tuesday Tip-Boost your hard skills set

I have had a few people ask about enhancing their skills set or obtaining certifications.

If you are a college student or in trade school, request your transcripts. I suggest either after you complete a semester/quarter, or training hours.
Too many times have it's been seen where jobs are offered that either required degrees, college credits, or hours earned in trade, that they can't get through the onboarding process because that information can't be confirmed (Because it is required for the position). Easiest way to verify if you are having issues is to show your transcripts 👌 Same for when you finish. If the school does not automatically send your transcripts when you graduate, request them (Unofficial and official transcripts). Keep stored them in a place you will remember 🤔 Plus good way to track your progress 😉👍 Also seen where people didn't get their degree/diploma when they finished school (Especially if you owed them).
