Careers in KM

The education and training of KM workers works best when it is interdisciplinary in nature. Those pursuing a career in KM should be working to develop skills in a variety of areas. Try to learn as many industry-specific businesses and communication processes as possible. Pay special attention to the organization of intellectual assets, information needs analysis and inventories, methods of eliciting tacit knowledge, and the development of information standards, policies, and procedures. Typical KM-related job titles fall into three major categories: strategic, developmental, and tactical.
