I’ve leant to go for something I’m passionate about - Nelisa
I’ve always wondered how being in a work environment feels like, and luckily was fortunate enough to have experienced that whilst still in school.
I assimilated that a work environment isn’t just “all work and no play” as some people may suggest, there’s actually more to it.
It’s more of mastering work ethics, acknowledging the fact that there is a time for everything, a time to work and a time to joke, but it should be more of working than playing if you can’t keep up with meeting deadlines.
The career choice that one may opt for, shouldn’t be because it’s a dead end alternative, rather go for something you are passionate about and feel you will relish for the rest of your life. If you choose a career path because you’ve heard it’s got “good bucks” or maybe because of any other reason then you’re probably going down the wrong road, change your mindset or you’ll hit rock bottom.
I got the opportunity to go to the Swaziland International Trade Fair and meet different kinds of people whom I envy not just because they are public figures but because they live in the “world of commerce” the Minister of commerce, trade and industry Jabulani Mabuza being the leading example. I am very much ardent about accounting business information systems so being granted the chance of learning more is like ticking an item off my bucket list.
A corporation named the National Industrial Development Corporation of Swaziland caught my attention, what I liked about this corporation is that it has economic growth as its objective as it promotes new industrialised projects through funding. The NIDCS is not the only corporation I learnt of but also FSE&CC, UNISWA Foundation and more.
I wouldn’t say I can’t wait to be employed in whatever vocational field but I would say I’m looking forward to it especially with the cordial reception I received upon my stay at the Swazi Observer from the staff to the management.
