I agree DC, without the passion for the work you are just another person boring everyone to death.
So many people ask me how to get into training....training gets into you.
First you must be a subject matter expert. What is it that you are so well versed in that you feel you can teach it? Then you must evaluate you presentation skills. Are you a person who can command the room when you arrive?
There is so much to doing what we do. For those of us who are successful, it isnt our job, it is our passion, our career and for some of us our lives. Think long and hard, evaluate yourself and find where the passion lies.
I didnt go looking for a training position, it never entered my mind. Someone saw it in me and recruited me. The rest is history. With the job market such as it is it could be difficult to get a position with a company with no experience when there are many trainers out of work right now. Then the contract trainers who will have contracts finishing up. Lots of competition. But if you are good....sky is the limit for you
