May I take your baggage sir? by Livvy

Bell boyIn all my years in the recruitment profession I’ve often been surprised (not by body odour or how many people fail to read instructions), but by how many people are unable to clearly articulate what it is that they want to do for a living. So much so that I’ve developed a theory on this that holds true in life, as it does for recruitment. Whilst this theory is unlikely to win a Nobel Prize, it’s assured to get you pondering as to where your focus lies.

How I motivated myself to conquer one of my biggest fears by Livvy

Biggest fear - waterA couple of weeks ago, I headed up north to 90 Mile Beach with the intention of spending a week relaxing in the sun. Well it certainly ended up being a fun week, but not quite as relaxing as initially intended… instead of relaxing in the sun I decided to challenge myself to master a new skill that would tackle one of my biggest fears, head on.

How to achieve your dreams (Goals) by Livvy

Achieve your dreamsOn Monday, I outlined a very simple but effective method for creating powerful goals. Hopefully you’ll now have an inspirational list of a few well worded goals, and now you’re wondering how to achieve them. Perfect.

The bad news is that the easy part is behind you, now comes the actual work. The good news is that the reward is permanent – even for an experience or something you use. ‘What?’ I hear you say. In achieving great things, it’s not actually the achievement that counts. What really matters is the person you will become through the achievement of your goals. That’s lasting. After all, life is not a destination (death?), it’s a journey. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the worthiness of the goal is paramount here, if it’s a real stretch, you WILL Grow as a person in striving towards it.

So, how do you make this “dream with a deadline” happen?

We're proud to help educate and inspire today's youth about future options in the ICT Industry. We recently upgraded our sponsorship of ICT-Connect to Premier status; one of only three top level sponsors. We believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment to the industry.
