Training and The Real World

[Photo by Amr Elmasry at Unsplash]

One of the most jarring things I have encountered in life has been the frequently found gap between training and what is actually needed on the job. 

Not always, of course, but often enough to leave you scratching your head in wonder that such an arrangement continues to exist.

Rather than finding a careful blend between the academic and the practical, you discover two separate areas where one side says: "You'll pick up that knowledge when you get on the job" and the other declares: "Disregard this and this and this of what you were taught. This is what we really do out here."

It is not a tidy system. Approach it with caution.
