Professional Skill for the week:  "What your mom said is true: Don’t burn your bridges!"

"to burn your bridges"

to do or say something (usually bad) that would make it impossible to ever return to that situation or circumstance

Whatever you do, don’t burn your bridges.

This saying is has never been more fitting than in today’s highly connected business world.  Likely military in origin, the phrase probably is based on the strategy that once a bridge was burned, there was no way to turn back from a chosen path. In the marketplace, it’s basically the same principal.

Picture this: You’re at work and your boss makes a remark that sends your blood pressure sky high. Without thinking, you immediately go on the defensive either verbally or with an email, and you outline exactly what’s on your mind. Have you found yourself reacting like this?

Unexpected situations such as a career transition can tempt you to tell people how you felt about working for your previous employer or boss.  One business manager found out how a previous employee felt through Facebook. 

Synonyms: foolhardy, hasty, heedless, hotheaded, ill-considered, impetuous, rash, reckless, shortsighted, thoughtless


 From the Principal/CEO:

Creating the Pipeline of our Next Generation Workforce

With the full support of the Newton County Board of Education, the Newton County Chamber of Commerce, and our community and business leaders, the Newton College and Career Academy (NCCA) was created to enhance academic achievement and provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in postsecondary education and the workforce. Our goal is to provide students in Newton County high schools with requisite skills and knowledge to exceed the majority of U.S. Department of Education performance indicators; to increase the number of students in Newton County high schools receiving post-secondary credits through local post-secondary partners; and to help students become workplace ready in order to be gainfully employed or to continue their education and training in a variety of post-secondary options.

Students at NCCA will have the chance to connect more directly with their career paths and earn industry credentials in addition to their high school diploma, increasing the chance for our students to be gainfully employed in a very competitive work environment. Programs at NCCA focus in areas that are high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations.
