7 Career Advice you will wish you got before Age 25

By // No comments:
Chinua Achebe had written his classic novel, Things Fall Apart, by the age of 25. J.K. Rowling was 25 years old when she came up with the idea of Harry Potter, the book that had sold over 400 million copies. At the age of 25, Mark Zuckerberg’s project, Facebook, had reached over 300 million users.

By conventional wisdom, at the age of 25, you are expected to have graduated from the university or college, and just starting a career. Who said you have to wait until you are 25 before you start trying to figure out what to do with your life?


1. Money should not be your primary motivation: Benjamin Franklin once said: “Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one.” While considering a course to study at the university, I decided to settle for Petroleum Engineering because I felt working in an oil company was the fastest way to get rich. Who wouldn’t want a slice of the oil money in an oil producing country? I graduated a petroleum engineer but 13 years later, I’m yet to collect my degree certificate from my school.

We can both agree that profitability and market demand is important in choosing a career. But that should never be the primary motivation if you truly want to be fulfilled. Instead see the next point.

2. Find and develop on what interests you: Late Professor Chinua Achebe, discovered his love for writing and storytelling while at the university. He won a scholarship to study medicine, but changed his studies to English literature at the University. He became fascinated with world religions and traditional African cultures, and began writing stories as a university student. His carefully honed craft of writing and storytelling resulted in his first published book, Things Fall Apart. Who haven’t read or at least heard about Things Fall Apart?

You don’t have to spend 4 to 5 years of your life studying a course you have no interest in, with the hope that everything will work out fine when you leave school. Most people in the corporate world hate their jobs. You are not too young to start thinking about your life. Youth is an advantage. Make the most of your time while you are young.

3. Start small: George Eliot, an English poet cum novelist once said: “Great things are not done by impulse but by a series of small things brought together.” I remember how I started my writing career with my mobile phone – Nokia 3230 to be precise. I couldn’t afford a laptop. And I wouldn’t accept that as an excuse not to start. That same business paid for my first laptop, several laptops later on, and has grown into a company with several employees.

You must understand that things will never be the same. If you start out without shoes, you will get slippers. After that comes shoes and maybe boots, if you so desire. Nothing ever is the same. Start small but dream big! You won’t be a graduate trainee all your life! So don’t be afraid to start small.


In this video we share with you 7 career advice you’ll wish you got before you turn 25. Whether you are just under 20 or in your later twenties, you will learn valuable lessons from this video.

How to successfully change your career in your 30's

By // No comments:
A worried career woman needs advice 
If you find yourself doing the same job for so many years, you may like to consider a career change. But when you're over 30, you may feel too old to begin a new career. But hey, that's not very true.
You can make a decision to have a career switch no matter how old you are.
According to a Recruitment Consultant and Candidate Testing and Assessment Expert at Jobberman Nigeria, John Bassey Raymond, whoever is considering a career change in his/her 30s has to think carefully about it. 
''The person should be ready to stoop in order to begin a new career because not having experience on the new career might mean starting from the bottom of the ladder''. Raymond said in a chat with Pulse.
So, before you make the decision, you need to consider the following factors.
1. Upskill
 
If you're looking forward to switching your career, you've got to start upskilling now. Don't delay it. Learning new skills will prepare and position you for a job in the prospective industry you have in mind.
How do I upskill? It's not hard. With the internet, trust me, you can learn anything. All you need to do is to search for it on google, read about it. If you're a visual learner, go on Youtube, watch videos tutorials about the skill you want to learn. You can also register for an online course and get a certificate in a relevant course. 
2. Identify your transferable skills
 
If you want to get a job in a new industry, it's important you learn the skills that'll make you relevant in that industry. But to make it easier for yourself, you'll probably need to see how you can transfer your current career skills into the new one.
Soft skills like communication, time management, organisation and leadership apply to any job. Just find a way to apply them in your new career.
John Bassey Raymond says ''Having transferable skills from a previous experience could mean the icing on the cake for some employers looking for such combination. For instance, an employer might be looking for an Accountant with HR experience or an HR with Accounting or Digital Marketing experience''. 
3. Get a mentor
 
Seeking Professional Advice: Having a mentor can help you grow in your new career.
To set yourself up for success in a field you're not familiar with, you'll need to have a trusted mentor or a coach in that field who'll take time to guide and give you tips and thorough advice about the field.
