Trust Precedes Success

Many job listings include the education and skills necessary for consideration. If you're applying to be a software engineer, you better know some code. Auditioning for an orchestra? Better have practiced your pieces. 

Skills and experience are what get you a job. Being qualified and seasoned gets you in the door. But to succeed in that position long term, you need to be trustworthy.  

In a world where you can feign surface knowledge by watching some YouTube videos, longevity in a job is achieved when you have proven your worth, your honesty, and can be trusted with even the most sensitive responsibilities. 

If you are both excellent at what you do, and can be trusted to be punctual and consistent, you will find success. Prove you can be trusted in the little things, and you will be put in charge over great things.
