KM and personal assets

It is common knowledge that people is the most important asset in a company. In regard to knowledge management, people are those who have the knowledge within an organisation and thus, they are valuable.

Career development part 2

As a matter of fact, after attending a careers workshop I found a very interesting vacancy to apply for in a large company. And since this company was one of my dreams to apply for a job, I send my CV.

I'm not sure if this company will call me for an interview, but as long as I know what I seek from a job, and not only what a company seeks from me, I feel that I can manage my career aspiration in a better way for me. Because, the career that someone pursues must give satisfaction and personal growth, not just be a chore...
