Costly mistakes; everyone makes them by Livvy

Everyone makes mistakesIf you don’t believe you make errors or mistakes then you are lying to yourself; even the most skilled people make errors in documents, CV’s, code and more! Sometimes these errors can be brushed aside but at other times, they are critical, costly and can affect your company’s and your reputation.

Tips for determining the culture of a potential employer by Livvy

You are so fantastic that everybody wants you! Now it’s time to be a bit selective – do you really want to work for them and is the culture right for you? After all, it’s imperative to know whether they will appreciate your encouragement of staff to take up the desk safari challenge.

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.
