Careers

In today�s world, the rate of change in information and communication technologies, globalisation, and greater competition, all contribute to a dramatic change in one�s working life. This ultimately has a profound effect one�s career. The concept of a job for life is no longer a reality. People are now likely to experience major career changes in their lives in a variety of industry sectors. 

We therefore have to look for a WORK/LIFE balance in our lives. We all want to maintain the best balance between the hours we spend in paid work and the time devoted to other roles in our lives such as leisure, home and family life. In this new climate, we need to be more adaptable, dynamic, innovative, flexible, resilient, self-initiating and collaborative to accommodate and thrive in the workplace.

Life long learning is now the norm and will remain an integral part of the workplaces of the future. It is critical for people to manage their life, learning, and work if they are to successfully navigate their way around a dynamic and complex economic landscape. This brings to the fore CAREER CHOICES.

Making the best career choices involves:
  • Knowing yourself - what you like (your interests), what you are good at (your skills and abilities), what is important to you (values)
  • Getting to understand the world of work - what�s out there
  • Learning how to make informed decisions
  • Finding out how to achieve objectives.
