There is an old expression, and I really like it and find it to be true: You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t force it to drink, which means that you can give someone everything they need and prepare them, but after that, it is up to them to do the rest of the work. You can’t do the work for them, although I’m sure some people would like it that way. When you are out there in the world by yourself, you have to remember the lessons you learned at Diversant and the skills they taught you.
They are like having a best friend in your corner when it comes to the IT world and IT staffing. They are on your side. You have to remember that this is what they do for a living and this is their livelihood. Because of this, they are skilled in all areas and they know how to make sure you are as prepared as possible and nothing is left to chance. After that, it is up to you to form your own path. It is a lot like football. The coaches can coach you up, get you ready, and make sure you are trained and ready to go. However, once you are out there, you are on your own and it is up to you to do the rest of the work.
However, you can rest easy when you have people like John Goullet at Diversant. This man has seen it all, done it all, and is the principal of the leadership and advisory board. He is going to give you his secrets, his tricks of the trade, and he isn’t going to lead you down the wrong path. He is going to make sure you are as prepared as you can be as preparation is a big part of the job. When you are prepared, the rest of it is easy as you have been trained for this.
