Mar 19, 2024

This goes out to all the people out there in their mid-30s who say "My technical skills got me where I am now, so they'll be enough to keep me going."

If that's you, you're absolutely correct about the first part, your technical wizardry, and your development of it, worked great for the first 10 years of your career. 

But over the next few years of your career, you'll see your technical skills become table stakes, and the promotions will go overwhelmingly to the people with technical skills AND communication and presentation skills. Welcome to life after 35.
