In the current era of digital acceleration, companies need to have highly competent digital talents to develop and grow. However, many people still don't know the right way to become a digital talent who has great quality.
Digital Talent is a term for people who can adapt to today's technological advances and two characteristics of digital talents. First, digital talents are usually very independent and mature people. Second, they can create, innovate, and think creatively so that they can create jobs.
To become qualified and competent digital talents, here are some tips that you can understand and do:
1. Don't say, "I don't know"
Never again say, "I don't know" or "I can't," during a job interview or in performing our job. Because the development of the internet and technology provides access for us to more easily find out various things.
2. Build your sense of curiosity
By having and continuing to build curiosity, that kind of attitude will make us understand more about the work we are currently doing. Thus, our abilities and competencies will continue to increase.
3. Find more references
Adapting to technology and finding out more often, we have increased references. The number of both relevant and great references will make us aware of and know the most up-to-date and relatable information with the field we are engaged in.
4. Be aware and take action
Often we don't realize what we need to do. Or maybe we know, but we just don't want to do it because it takes up a lot of time, is too difficult, and so on. To become digital talents, we need to be aware and take action to improve ourselves and become more qualified.
5. Find your purpose in life and focus
Keep finding your purpose in life and focus to perform, don't stop. Make time every day with a minimum of 30 minutes to 2 hours to explore for references, study, and practice to build our competency.
