Education starts at birth and only ends at death
That quote has been a constant thought within my head since I heard it around two years ago. It is a simple sentence that simple resonates with me and follows my beliefs in life. You are never too old or too young to learn something new.
Where this quote has really come to the fore for me, is because of the fact that I am working this year. With it being my first year out of school and jumping straight into the industry, I have learnt a great deal at a pace much faster than I expected and I am absolutely loving it.
I have also realized that I could be doing a lot more. With working, you need to develop skills that set you above the rest and provide you with the edge that can help you provide your job to the best of your ability, and that is something that I have been trying to acquire this year.
So when I did the Quirk eMarketing course earlier this year, I really enjoyed the experience and really realished the chance to learn at a higher level. Also, learning about something that I was extremely passionate about just put the cherry on the top and the skills that I learnt there are invaluable.
So I am attempting to continue to educate myself and provide myself with the opportunity to learn as much as I can before the year is out. With this, starting from tomorrow, I will be participating in another Quirk Course, just this time, it will be with regards to Search Engine Optimisation.
I will be giving you a weekly run down on Monday’s of the course along with other valuable bits and peices along the way as I find them. Hopefully I can do a few practical tests with the skills that I have learn and then provide you lovely people with the feedback.
Keep hold of your hats ladies and gentleman as things around here are going to get exciting during the next couple of months! This is just the start!
