The world gets smaller every day!!

Several years ago I was completing my PhD at Lancaster University while I was doing some post-graduate support work at the international office for student recruitment. One day I worked into the recruitment office and a staff asked me about an application they had received from someone who wanted to come study his PhD at Lancaster University. I checked the application and to my surprise 'it was from a former lecturer of mine during my Bachelors degree some seven years previously'. He only had his MSc at the time he taught me.

Anyway, upon recommendation, he resumed for his PhD at Lancaster University. The first day we met on campus, I remember him talking down to me. He said 'Akan, I have resumed for my PhD and I guess you have resumed for your Masters degree here at Lancaster University too?'

Little did he know!!!

Your career in future depends on what you do today and how you treat everyone you meet!! Successful careers are a lot more about attitude than content!! The entirety of my career has been based on great relationships. I capture these insights in my new career mobile app launching soon. Watch this space!!
