Career Direct Consultant
With more than 30,000 kinds of jobs to choose from, it’s no wonder people make mistakes. For example, accepting the first offer that comes along. Or saying “yes” just because of the salary. Or trying to live out their parents’ unfulfilled dreams. Or went job-shadowing without concrete results. Many stories have been told by parents at interview sessions of frustration and procrastination in their own work place.
We’ve received a unique combination of work-related gifts and talents. The secret is to determine what they are and how to use them in making career and education decisions. Areas of work and influence are: Government, family, education, arts, science, business, communication and church. Where does a learner start?
Learners and parents must make sure of the options that all institutions other than universities, offer. The reading of Educational articles and reports, own experience and newspapers convinced me that more than 60% of University student have never considered a College career or apprenticeship to prepare them for a more practical experience. Research will and must always stay the responsibility of the student and parents but few do or know how to take action. Time is our most valuable resource and students must be well prepared. There is truly a cry out from learners for help! Mistakes are costly.
