"Knowledge is power" key to career success?

March 11, 2007 4:35am CST
Some of my friends subscribe to the belief that "knowledge is power" and through it, they'd be able to achieve career success. Personally, I believe things aren't that simple. I think one has to know the right people, have some luck and also rather high emotional quotient to go high up the career ladder. What are your thoughts on this?

I agree that knowledge is power, but it's not the key to success. If you have a lot of knowledge but you don't know how to use it, then you won't get success. To be successful in carreer there are still a lot of things you have to master, like how you communicate with your colleagues etc, not just the knowledge.
