Podcast #2 – 21 career advice for 21-year-olds
If you could go back to being 21 again, would you…?
I’d certainly be tempted, that’s for sure! Simply because I’ve learnt so much about the working world over the last few years that would have done me a WHOLE world of good had I known them at 21!
But since I can’t go back in time, the next best thing is to pass on some of those lessons to the next generation……so if you’re 21, coming up to 21, have a child who’s 21, or simply wish you were 21 again(!), this podcast is for you!
In this second episode of Mildred Talabi on Careers, I share 21 things I’ve learnt in the latter part of my life which I believe will be helpful for you to know if you’re 21 and starting out in your career.
Here’s the short version of the 21 things (in no particular order):
- Learn beyond university
- Invest in your passion
- Learn to speak in public
- Plan your career
- Earn as much as you can
- Build quality relationships
- Visit outside your comfort zone
- Figure you out
- Find faith
- Shake off negativity
- Seize the day
- Travel, work, or live abroad
- Get that driving licence
- Don’t choose a boy/girlfriend over your career
- Don’t stay in a job too long
- Progress your career
- Be excellent
- Be nice
- Be an entrepreneur
- Embrace technology
- Be the best
