Last night’s Australian Computer Society (ACS) Young IT Networking event was attended by nearly 40 Young ICT Professionals of the ACS.
I presented on the topic, “Tips for success”, along with inspiring stories from the careers of the newly formed 2014 ACS Young IT Committee. I noted how success means different things to different people. However, I shared my personal six tips on how to be successful:
- Set and review goals
- Do what you love
- Continue to keep learning
- Conduct yourself with integrity
- Extend yourself through networking
- Strive for excellence
- Develop a support team
I left them with the question, “How will you know success when you see it?”. See if you can identify success from these tips*. I have created the infographic to help illustrate this also:
As Mark Twain, the famous American author said, “the secret of success is getting started”. I challenged them to start there and then.
I commended the 2014 ACS Young IT Committee: Sina, Jennifer, Charles and Sohail for taking on their positions and encouraged the participants by continuing to support them by attending their events and sharing what they can to make the year a successful one.
Did you see success?
