One of the biggest challenges in the world is unemployment. Unemployment is caused by a number of things but the biggest factor is a lack of communication between aspiring employees and employers. This gap between the two is bridged by association. Professional associations are beneficial both to the job seekers and employers not only because they ease communication but also because of a number of things as discussed below.
Collecting credentials. By joining a professional organization, one is able to build their credibility. Just by being a member, you have shown commitment to your profession. By being involved and competitive you are showing your current, for those that are already employed, and future employers that you have leadership skills. When participating in and winning the association’s awards and honors, you make your resume stand out while at the same time exposing yourself to interested parties. Some organization might have a code of ethics or work within philosophies that will boost your credentials. One such association is the American Institute of Architects. For someone to join the AIA, you need to uphold certain values, as required by association and can be held accountable, according to Robert Ivy.
Assistance in job hunting. In the society that we live in, you need to know someone who knows someone who knows another for you to be abreast with job opportunities. What better place to create a build a network of like-minded professionals that might result in job opportunities, than in professional associations.
Learning industry interests. In most organizations, there is a priority given to political lobbying, though some industries might develop wings that are designed to sway the policymakers to make decisions that favor the company at large. Robert Ivy, the CEO and executive vice president of American Institute of Architects, understands the influence an association can have in creating, changing and removing policies that are not suitable for their business.
When Wes Edens, co-founder of Fortress Investment Group makes a bet, it’s sometimes not one that many people would have expected. He tends to root for the underdog and will even put his capital behind it to make it happen. After taking a break from subprime lending, he got back into the industry in 2010 only a few years after the financial crisis that took place in the United States.
Right now, the world seems to be focused on self-driving cars while Wes Edens has chosen to invest in a private passenger train system in Florida with plans to expand to different cities. In addition, he made a big bet for the Milwaukee Bucks back in 2014 when he became a co-owner of the team. Even though the team hasn’t won a championship for more than half a century, he still sees the potential.
Instead of listening to the opinions of others when it comes to making an investment, Wes Edens looks at the facts and what the potential benefits and problems may be. One of the main problems that he experienced with the Brightline passenger train was that many people just didn’t believe that it was possible. He was able to change people’s minds and suspend their disbelief just long enough to show the potential value in the investment.
Wes Edens has made a fortune through Fortress Investment Group, many times through investments that others thought would never show potential for paying off. The company became the first of its kind in private equity funds to go public. This initial public offering gave Wes Edens a stake of Fortress worth $2.3 billion. When Fortress was purchased by SoftBank in 2017 for $3.3 billion, his stake was bought out for 40% more than the value pre-announcement.
