e-skills and Your Career looks at promoting global competitiveness using this program. What do I mean by global competitiveness? What are those benefits that e-business and ICT give to you? What are those opportunities for competing and networking better? What are those technology solutions?
e-skills and Your Career was reaching the audience for one year on Metro FM 97.6. Like I said before you don’t have to be an IT professional to make the required impact in the knowledge society. You simply need the desire, the knowledge and the thinking. And please this is not a get rich quick forum.
The knowledge society rewards quality effort. Are you a trader? You could be a student. How can you work, network and compete better? We talk about the global village.
No class or World class
What does the global village mean to you? Let me tell you, it means there is no local class anymore. You are either world class or no class. You are competing, networking, connecting and sharing with other people all over the world. So what are those solutions that you can create and that you can use to meet global standards? What are the important laws and regulations; what are those policies that can enhance your e-skills and Your Career? What are those best practices and how do you improve your performance?
Skills and Career Needs
What are the skills and career needs in the public and private sectors, for jobs, job creation, entrepreneurship, innovative business, etc? In terms of skills e-skills and Your Career will be looking at user skills, business skills and Technology professional skills.
User skills have to do with digital
literacy mentioned earlier. E-business skills are very, very important in
the knowledge driven environment today. E-business skills are required for
creating new businesses online and transforming existing traditional
businesses and applications in all sectors (e.g. in education, health,
entertainment, finance, etc). And of course Technology professional skills
are for Telecom engineers, Network administrators, software programmers,
database administrators, Web developers, support professionals and so on.
Furthermore what is the thinking required to make sense of knowledge economy and to contribute meaningfully in the knowledge economy. How do we use knowledge to get benefit? One of our slogans is more knowledge, more power. You need knowledge and you need to know how to use the knowledge. We are going to explore the mentality required. We have left the old economy of natural resources, physical assets and face to face interaction. We are now in the era of knowledge, technology, empowerment, lifelong learning and constant change.
Bringing down the barrier of Distance
You can’t afford to become a dinosaur. Distance is no longer a barrier and now we can do business, interact and talk to people who are not physically in the same place with us. For example we run a training school and we conduct training for students who live outside Nigeria; we have been doing this for several years. The fact is that these opportunities are there for you in your business or area of interest, just as they exist for us in IT training. What and where are your interests?
