Ever since college I knew I had what it takes to be a success in business, that is why I knuckled down and, as well as studying hard, got some important work experience under my belt.
Getting work experience not only shapes you and helps to show what is needed in the real world but also shows potential employers that you are dedicated enouh to go out and get that work experience and try to better yourself. On occasion if you show the right kind of commitment on your placement your employers can see the potential and drive and offer you a full time place. That is what happened to me and I have gone from strength to strength since then.
It has been a good few years since I left college but I still stay in contact with some of the chaps that I went with and nothing beats catching up over a nice malt whisky or two.
I know that despite my years of experience there is always something to be learned so I have found an open mind is one of the best tools to have and who knows the next Facebook or Apple could be just around the corner.
