Accelerate Your Career

USEFUL ONLINE RESOURCES FOR YOU

As a Career Coach I meet a lot of students, graduates and professionals daily you have several career goals and desires. In the course of our discussion I find out most have genuine goals but their present level of development isn’t at par with theit goals. An example is someone who wants to land a job in oil and gas and has no training in oil and gas, hasn’t attended any oil and gas conference and just studied petroleum engineering and hasn’t taken any form of self-development whatsoever.

Regardless of your goals, your current level of development must match that goal, that is- you must have developed or be in the process of developing yourself to achieve your goals, you must also set a timeline for the goal and also get an accountability partner or a Coach to guide you along the way.

I have compiled a list of resources sent to me via a group to help you with your development.
