Certified OR Dissatisfied
here we go!!!!! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this…now you can too….
Hello. Welcome to a New Week. If there is one country where I know that people love acquiring certificates, it is Nigeria.
Once, we were having a Career Coaching session and an interested participant asked if she will get a certificate for attending. I was literally amazed.
The obsession with getting certificates is primarily driven by a desire to have that extra something that will get one a job ahead of others.
In recent times, I have spent sometime conducting a review of trends in the Nigerian and African Employment space and I have come to realize that certifications (and not only certificates) will help working professionals differentiate themselves better.
The maxim that says ‘if you stop READING, you start dying’ calls for a review that says ‘if you stop LEARNING, you have ceased from truly living’.
This is because READING is not worthwhile until it is translated to LEARNING.
