Abraham Lincoln once said; “The best way to predict the future is to create it”, and that is exactly what I am doing on a day-to-day basis, crafting the future I envisage.
Publishing CAREERS MAGAZINE is an absolute honor. The prospects of the magazine speak directly to what I believe in as a human being and fundamentally aids in my quest of creating a future where I assist people to make informed decisions pertaining to their career choices. I am a firm believer that careers are at the core of not only building a nation, but also building one’s self, and for this fundamental reason, career guidance ought to be prioritized in society.
My hope as a publisher is that young people will take advantage and make use of the information and content found in this magazine. CAREERS MAGAZINE is a unique magazine because the majority of the content is not time-bound, thus making it a very useful handbook that doesn’t age. Of course ‘careers’ is a broad concept and presents a challenge when it comes to covering scope, however, the team working on the magazine is equal to the task. I pride myself on having a team consisting of 100% youth, leading and working on the magazine. This excites me because it means these young people are not only crafting their future but they are also assisting other young people in also crafting their future and that of the country.
I urge all of us to work collectively in using our careers as vessels and tools that produce a better future for us all. CAREERS MAGAZINE will play its role as a trusted authority when it comes to issues of career development and guidance, and we will strive to always be at the forefront where careers are concerned. Let’s walk this journey together and remember that the “South African Dream” is heavily dependent on us.
