When it comes to skills...

  • Proper communication is one of the most important, and sought after skills
  • Other basic skills looked for are being well read and having a good general knowledge/being informed
  • Namibia faces a massive skills shortage so the more skills you have the more in control you will be and the more you can call the shots
  • Sometimes gaining skills means getting in at the bottom and working your way up
  • BUT thanks to technology it is a lot easier to gain skills these days than it once was

The millennial's guide to retirement saving

I previously spoke to Mr. Franois Brand from the Financial Literacy Initiative about Taking Control of your Finances where we touched on the difference between saving and investing. I will in the future also do further interviews about the subject as well as more detailed ones about the different types of investment options available.

In the meantime though I happened upon an article on the FANews website by Steven Nathan of 10X Investments in which he discusses saving form the point of view of a millenial that I thought many of you would be able to gain from. Click here to find out why he says the most important thing to just start putting as much away now as you possibly can.

 

Online Learning Options

Earlier today I posted an interview that I conducted with Yvonne Le Roux of Elite Employment about how furthering your skills, or gaining new ones can often help you land the job rather than the other candidates, especially for those people who are highly-skilled in various fields. (click here to listen to that interview)

In the interview we spoke about how easy it is to gain news skills these days, with the proliferation of internet based learning portals, many of them offering free courses to people from all over the world. Imagine, you could be sitting in Namibia and studying a course offered by Harvard, Yale, the University of London, or even MIT!

To help you on your way, here are just 4 of the numerous options waiting for you to discover them...

UdemyUdemy.com is an online learning platform. It is aimed at professional adults who want to add new skills to their resumes, or explore their passions. Unlike academic MOOC programs are driven by traditional collegiate coursework, Udemy provides a platform for experts of any kind to create courses which can be offered to the public, either at no charge or for a tuition fee. Udemy provides tools which enable users to create a course, promote it and earn money from student tuition charges. (wikipedia)

UdacityUdacity is a for-profit educational organization founded by Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, and Mike Sokolsky offering massive open online courses (MOOCs). According to Thrun, the origin of the name Udacity comes from the company's desire to be "audacious for you, the student". While it originally focused on offering university-style courses, it now focuses more on vocational courses for professionals. (wikipedia)
