We live in a world where we’re taught to be cautious. From a young age we’re told things like “Be careful, you’ll hurt yourself!” and “Be wary of strangers!”.
Onwards into the world of work, we’re surrounded by terms like ‘due diligence’, ‘risk assessment’ and ‘contingency planning’. Each carries an expectation of danger, so best be prepared when it arrives.
And so it goes… our default standpoint in life becomes to proceed with caution.
What makes you unique? How does this influence your life?
Big things to think about.
Questions such as “tell me about yourself” and “why you?” are a daily occurrence for many right now, an unavoidable part of the job search, of striving to get noticed amongst the growing crowd.
Terms like ‘influencer’ and ‘personal brand’ are on the rise. The use of social media continues to explode, particularly platforms like Instagram and TikTok, where ‘being seen’ and ‘finding validation’ are arguably the primary objectives.
