Having moderated this blog since late 2009, we're no longer afraid of career questions -- any kind -- thrown at us. In fact, we beg for inquiries -- we're close to declaring "Use the comments section below" as our official catchphrase, really. We've used the phrase countless time and we're very grateful to those who listen every time we have it written in a post. One last message: we hope your patience is long enough still to handle reading it more.
So, why are we talking about questions? A recent upload by our editors at http://sg.jobsdb.com/SG/EN/Resources/JobSeekerIndex reminded us of our past exploits. The article touches on our favourite career topics -- those that we've grown to love over the months that we've moderated this blog and catered to its loyal readers. Some of them (Really, our experience with inquiries is too vast, we can't post everything here without getting past the average blogging limits):
Keep up with learning opportunities. Relevance is an important factor in career development; lose it and you'll find yourself on a slump.
You must improve your networking skills for two reasons: to get career advice and have people to ask for job prospects in case of job loss.
Work life balance is a KEY word when it comes to achieving career success. Don't get yourself too worked out; make sure you still have fun. Earning good doesn't have to be a tight grip in the neck.
