In the article “Our Googley Advice to Students: Major in Learning,” by the writers at the google blog, what matters is that google is not the only place that looks for this type of worker. To get a good job I must have these characteristics. Google says they look for “non-routine savants” with analytical reasoning, communication skills, willingness to experiment, team player, passion, and leadership. This article says the challenge is how to acquire the characteristics and I agree. The article by David Warlick named "What is 21st Century Learning?,” says that good learners learn by questioning, engaging, proving, and teaching others. Questioning goes with analytical reasoning, engaging with communication, proving with experimentation, teaching with team player. To be a good worker you must also be a good learner. Every business has a type of worker they look for, having these characteristics will fit you in almost anywhere.
