A good work life balance is not always easy to achieve Can we have it all –career, family, social life? Or do we have to make choices to keep a good balance?
Is working from home the answer? We review the implications for your career.
Maybe entrepreneurship is the solution for you. Let’s take a look at the skills, characteristics, attributes and behaviours of successful entrepreneurs
Then we consider what a career is, and how the role of the contemporary worker has changed beyond all recognition, with the demise of the job for life, and the rise of contracting out.
This explains why you need a career management plan. If you are going on a journey, it is easier to get to your destination if you know where that is. Otherwise “Life is what happens to you while you are busy doing other things “a line used by John Lennon in “Beautiful Boy “, may be what happens to you.
We offer guidance on the career management process, to help you take control and ensure life doesn’t just happen to you.
And finally, we consider whether you need to be a graduate to be successful in life. The answer is No, by the way!!
