I woke up this morning with this thought.
- Everyone is looking for a job, but few want to build skill & be trained.
The truth is, your certificate from the University, Polytechnic or monotechnic is just the first step. You need additional training & skill.
Whenever we talk about skill, people think we are talking about learning a trade or a vocation. But far from it. Not all of you can be tailors, bakers, welders, electricians, etc. For someone like me, it is practically impossible to do some of those things. But does that mean that is the end? No.
There are trainings & certifications that you can get online & all around you. How can you be looking for a job & you don’t know how to use any Microsoft package? No excel, word, power point or the rest?
Elon Musk said you can learn everything for free online. He said this was a secret he learned. Graphic designing, coding, acting, playing instruments, driving, etc.
If a man can always carry you in the front of his car or on his bike he can teach you how to drive & ride. Your job is not just to drive him crazy or be a cowgirl If you go to a church where they have musical instruments then you can learn.
Also, there are several sites online that train & equip people for free. Develop yourself.
I am a pure sciences student through & through but what I have earned has mostly come from writing. There was a time I wrote so well some people put me on a plane out of this country & still paid me plenty dollars. But where did I learn? Online.
you can perhaps be one of best in your field if you learn to educate yourself, research more and dare to be more.
Everyday you wake up should be an opportunity to learn. People are learning right now & building themselves. Do you think you can stand them in the labour market?
So, tell me, what will you be learning this first quarter of 2021?
