Welcome to Calvin's
02-10-2016 ....News Update 34
Hello. Calvin here. Technology is changing the way we live all the time. Whether you are studying or working…you simply have to have your own personal smartphone and laptop.
These days you are required to “take work home” and finish it on your laptop and may even get work related whatsapp messages after hours.
Just recently I read in the papers that graduate doctors at hospitals put in so much overtime that many are even too tired to work. Recently a doctor died in a car accident as she fell asleep in front of the wheel on her way home after a very late working shift.
Unfortunately, working and being available after hours is becoming part of our society and the way we live….this trend was unheard of by our parents unless you worked in the emergency services.
The reason I am highlighting this trend is because we all want to stay ahead and earn the best income at the best companies and these big successful companies are putting pressure on you to perform.
That is why it is so important to upgrade your skills all the time because as technology changes, so you have to learn new software and business skills to stay on top of it. Are you doing this?
Example: Many architectural draughtsman have switched from the drawing board to their laptops using AutoCAD programmes to draw, but these specialist software differ and improves all the time and so must you.
You have to learn and take courses to stay updated or you will be left behind and someone else will take over the higher positions in the company where the latest computer skills is a requirement.
Another example in the engineering industry is the skills needed in 3D generating software like 3D Solidworks. This means that if you have been drawing in 2D only then you will soon be left behind and higher paying jobs will be offered to technical staff that can draw/design in both 2D and 3D.
That is why I offer one-to-one training because I know as well as you do that at this stage of you working career, you CANNOT go back to college or university and their part-time courses are simply not up to the current business reality.
Colleges focus on young people and most courses are based on theory and content that you already know….....yet you simply want a quick update on the latest version and features of the specialist software and you want it CUSTOMISED to your specific industry or current job requiremnts.
This is exactly what we focus on at my specialist one-to-one training company divisions….see the full list from my link below:
And now is the right time to upgrade your skills as 2017 is around the corner and that is the year you want to earn more money and move up in your career.

I have countless debates about young people having to find jobs which simply is not there and the problem of studying when private colleges are simply overpriced. Our people are suffering financially and the “blame-game” is in full swing with the #FEESMUSTFALL protests.
Let’s wake up to the REAL SOLUTION: Study courses that will equip you as a young person to become self-employed within 5 years and as parents, let’s assist our children in this direction.
Not everybody can become doctors, lawyers and engineers, BUT everyone can aquire the skills to become self-employed...even if this starts off as a part-time business. How many great success stories started off working from home (in a garage).
What is needed FIRST is this mind-shift , namely, my child can and will become a successful entrepreneur! And I will help him/her aquire the right skills/tools necessary to make this happen.
The joys of passing matric soon evaporates when the struggle to find employment starts.
At CalvinAcademy I am determined to help our young people change their mindset and set their vision towards becoming business owners where they will one day provide jobs and contribute to their community.
