  3. 3. Getting into Edtech: Unsolicited Advice  This is a dynamic space. Stay hungry, stay plugged in, stay current, stay connected.  Make yourself an expert. Get steeped in the customer / market. It will help you adapt, find opportunities, and amplify your voice.  Don’t discount substantive ‘traditional’ education experience. People value it.  Education can seem like a cult. But it’s permeable. One way in: Develop (or leverage a pre-existing) knowledge base / skill set.  Culture matters.  So does your team (and manager).  So does YOUR education. Seek opportunities to learn and grow.  Think about where you want to be on the two axes of the ‘Impact’ spectrum. This may change over time. ©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved. 3
