Well, it’s official (apparently), I am about to resume my weekly column duty with IOL, writing a career column on the IOL Jobs website. I’m looking forward to this as it brings a kind of discipline to my writing which frankly I was missing for a while. I hope it’s going to continue on the five years that I have already invested in writing over 200 columns with Independent Newspapers in the past.
In looking back it’s amazing to see what I was writing about five years ago. Honestly it’s still relevant today. One particular column that I will definitely be expanding on is how to become a personal brand. I find this topic extremely relevant to people now. Not only because of the recession, but because it makes huge sense to invest in yourself. Whether you choose a traditional career or a less formal working life, remember, “you sell yourself first.”
Sunday Brunch time!
