2014 brings new rules for career success

Issued by: GetSmarter | 29 Jan 2014 08:48
Recent studies indicate that the average South African holds 13.5 jobs over a lifetime. This means that whatever you are currently doing should be aimed at preparing you for what is to come next. This is especially relevant in the marketing and advertising industry, where new skills are constantly required to keep up with trends, and to effectively execute ever-changing strategies.
For the individual, this means competing in a market where there is certainly no shortage of applicants looking for marketing and advertising positions. In order to stand out, you need to constantly develop your skill set, and continuous education has therefore become a key component of career development.
