- Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best. John C. Maxwell
Learning a skill such as coding signals to your employer that you are resourceful, tech-savvy, and versatile. They will lean on you for tasks beyond the scope of your current position, and this will lead to opportunities within your career you never knew existed.
What if you work in finance? Manufacturing? Agriculture? Entertainment? Medicine? Code is powering technology in virtually every industry across the globe. Understanding how these technologies work will help you become your team’s most valuable employee. Your supervisor and co-workers can rely on you to help manage the website, build promotional emails, navigate or debug a new software — the possibilities are endless.
Monopolizing a skill at work is a sure-fire way to become indispensable, and coding will help you do just that.
