“If I know my stuff, my employer will pay me well” that’s a lie we’re taught from childhood.

And here’s my take on this:

The industry is not there to fulfill your needs, it’s there to protect the entity’s interests.

If you want to get paid, knowing your stuff is a given,

Then there’s a heck lot more to do before you get paid well.

As engineers mostly we’re oblivious of social skills, and that’s the next big piece.

Learning how to deliver value and sell it appropriately
