I have a broad range of experience across many disciplines in technology and I absorb information like a sponge. I enjoyed four entirely different successful careers as a result of it. That is not attributed to college or training, but rather a lifetime of cultivating the ability to adapt to change.
I always coach people I have mentored - focus on learning how to learn, vs learning a career or a discipline. With that you will go much further in life than you will with any career training you can apply. Over my lifetime I have cultivated the following core traits - these differ per individual of course - but this is my self-assessment based on feedback from colleagues and clients.
I have always found this information helpful when hiring to gauge overall fit and fitness for any job.
