I had featured Talented Young People’s blog a few posts back, but since they had sent in two blogs to review, here’s my take on Talented Young People’s Blogger/blogspot.com blog.
Though the one they had on their domain looks cleaner and is easier on the eyes than this one, I actually like this one better than the blog on their own domain. Though they just used a generic Blogger template, this has better content than the one on the dedicated domain. For me, content is king. If the blog may look nicer and cleaner, that’s just an added bonus. If it has great content, like this one, I won’t mind it if it were hosted only on Blogger. But then, it’s just me. Either way, I believe in Talented Young People’s mission/vision to empower the youth, and I’m just cheering them on!
Excerpts after the jump. 🙂
Excerpts from Talented Young People’s blogspot blog:
This week I am addressing a hot topic which over the last year I have found myself in many long conversations talking about and discussing this being what is more important to have in order to get a job experience or qualifications?
With the rise in number of people attending university and completing Degrees it seems that some of the shine have been taken off them especially now that you can get a degree in any thing from Surfing to David Beckham. No longer is university just for the financial and social elite.
Getting a job and doing well at a job interview is all about standing out from the crowd and being better than the other candidates so now with degrees being common place it seems a degree alone will not cut it in the workplace. Many job adverts are now asking for a minimum of three years work experience in the desired field before they will consider you.
Now you say how can I get the experience when I am at university? This is a true point so this is why you need to know before you go to university what career you want to work in and what is the best path to get you there. Many university students just go to university as they don’t know what else to do but if you can go in knowing what you want to do it is a big advantage.
