Over the years, I have realized as an HR person that people stand to gain a lot when they make a will to learn for themselves.
Many times when we organize interviews, we meet different calibres of people ranging from the ones who are prepared to the ones who can never be ready except for an intervention in their lives. But in all these, I noticed that eighty five percent of the ones who stand out are the ones who usually attend trainings, conferences, programmes, seminars and even volunteer jobs. So many times I wonder why, but I have come to discover that ‘you are what you hear’. These people no longer need to read question and answers from the internet for an interview because they have an experience for whatever questions they are being asked, they have groomed themselves to the extent that they don’t depend on other people’s opinion about a particular issue.
So… why don’t we make out time to build ourselves instead of depending on others, there are some free reasonable trainings out there looking for people to fill up the spaces. Let’s all make an effort this year to impact ourselves for ourselves’ sake. I mean, ‘if you don’t take care of you, who will?’
