If you persevere, you shall prosper. In learning.

We've been featuring and Career Events on this blog since a long time ago.What's the big deal? Learning and development may not be as complicated a topic as perhaps, stress management or career change (it's fairly easy to contemplate on, really), but the issue here is how you can get people motivated to mind their learning. It's an observation we've come up with after many months of writing such features. Marketing is more than advertising, apparently.

In other words, it's not about Career Advice lacking enough career articles to support our motives and make them acceptable by professional standards, but the difficulty is due to the fact that career resources come with a price and not all people find them worth spending for.

To those who've been following us long enough, how will you rate us in terms of featuring career seminars and training opportunities? In our feature about them last week, for instance, did our presentation incline you to at least visit and An even bigger question is, did you attend at least one?

Yes, feel free to use the comments section below to deliver your answers. We'll have them all compiled for taking of notes. It's the new year and we want to correct our faults in this aspect as early as now. Don't worry about us because we're perpetuating this Perfectionist behaviour for the good.

Anyway, January 22 is the date to remember for Career Events fans because our editors at Career Events have chosen that day for Audrey Quek's Unleash Your Image Power Through Dressing & Etiquette. At this point, the FlowerAdvisor vouchers already have owners, but it isn't to late to enlist your name to get counseling from a professional about personal branding and professional imaging.
