  • Verify technical reference information training manuals and product guides.
  • Continually explore new ideas and trends in the ecosystem - read all the best blogs and websites, stay on top of cutting edge news and share updates on new developments.

  • Build relationships between teams for information sharing to contribute to an improved overall baseline of common knowledge within the organization.
  • Keep your eye out for colleagues who show a keen interest in becoming a go-to resource as well. Sharing your knowledge and guidance to create more domain experts will be incredibly rewarding for Circle and the professionals who want to develop in their careers.
