PERSONAL SWOT ANALYSIS
Last two weeks, we started a series on Personal Development. Personal Development is essential for successful student life or career.
I hope the self-assessment questions we discussed in the first part of the personal development series were helpful in the process of self-discovery.
Over the past month, I have engaged you on different issues pertaining to the job market. We looked at what await you after school, touched on what employers really want in their prospective employees, discussed the topic “the art of budgeting and then answered a question on work experience. I hope the past month was insightful and informative.
Today is the last Thursday of the month and HR Focus will answer a question out of the many questions mostly asked by undergrads and young graduates about the job market.
Question: Employers always required work experience, how do I get work experience whiles in school?
This week, I want us to talk about personal finance. A subject rarely talked about in our schools.
So when Mummy or Daddy or Aunty send that cash via your account or mobile money, what do you do with it? I know it is easy to just withdraw and start to spend but such a habit is not helpful to your personal finance now or in the near future.
Last week, I gave an insight about what awaits you after school. I also mentioned the mismatch that exists in our educational curricular and the requirements in the job market.
