What it takes to go up the Professional Ladder?
So many of us face challenges as young people when we are transitioning from our academic pursuits onto our professional specialization in carrier making. The issue of what it takes to start up our carrier and reach a successful level of professionalism and strong work ethic is a huge gap that we all face every day in our pursuits. This is why, after progressive training on communication and networking, Rotaract Club of Lewet organized one of the most important and required training yet, on career development on the 1st of November 2014. The training was organized commemorating vocational service month of October in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Central Mella at the Timret Lehiowt Office. With the ever more growing need of effective professionalism, Lewet members and more than 35 other members from the various Rotaract clubs like Abugida, Mella, Solyana, Wodiyamado and Finot participated and got the essential tools on what it takes to go up the corporate ladder and become a successful professional. The Trainer was none other than the effective and dedicated Rotarian Kifle W/ Hawariat who has more than 16 years of experience in the areas of business IT and project management as well as working as a job recruiter for corporate companies and agencies like Ethiopian Airlines and Ethio-Jobs. Topics on professional CV building (the winning CV), Interviewing skills and FAQ’s, corporate ethics and professional goal settings were thoroughly discussed with activity based evaluations for the full day. The club service team, organized lunch and tea break for the participants and finally certificates were given with a group photo after experience sharing from skilled professional Rotarain Samson Tesfaye. The training was a very essential one and was successfully concluded with great feedback to repeat it in the future. The next Phase of the training on Self Discovery Tools and Interpersonal Communication Skills is promised to take place in January 2014.
