ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the concept of the learning curve in employment. He claims that the concept is commonly used by trainers but is seldom implemented to career thinking. He points out learning curve that is steep may offer a demanding but positive experience and would involve learning new skills and strategies. He mentions that once a person reaches the top of the curve, they need to find new ways to motivate themselves. He recommends employees to review their position on their learning curve.
