About: Who's Who Career Guide for Future Leaders (in Namibia)
We, as the publishers of the well-known and respected business guide, the Who's Who Namibia, were overwhelmed by the positive feedback we received on the first edition of the Career Guide for Future Leaders. One such feedback that we just MUST share with you came from the Oshinamumwe Combined School, a rural school near Omuthiya in the Oshikoto Region. We quote from their letter: "We would like to inform you that the copies of the 2015 Career Guide that your office so kindly sent to our school had a hugely positive impact on our learners. As you will know, most schools in the rural areas of Namibia continuously experience a lack of access to information, especially in terms of career guidance that we can share with our learners.
The "Who's Who Career Guide for Future Leaders" was a much-needed and highly appreciated guide that our learners eagerly read from cover to cover. And even more importantly, when we analysed our Grade 10 results for 2015, we were astounded: our Grade 10 pass rate increased from 75% to an amazing 98%.' When we asked the learners why they did so well during 2015, as nothing else changed during the year compared to other years, they said that the Career Guide motivated them to study harder, as they now have a much better idea of what career they want to follow, and what it would entail in terms of subjects they need to select, as well as j the marks they need to obtain.
We were all pleasantly surprised and felt it important to share this good news with you and your team." We feel very privileged that we could contribute in our small way to make a difference in some learners' lives. Because we know, choosing the right career can be difficult. But it is worth the effort to spend time and energy to make sure you choose the right career, as it will have huge impacts on your life. Imagine loving to go to work every day! This career guide offers information on the ten most popular careers in Namibia. We trust that the guide will inspire and motivate young Namibians to make the right career choices and to help you accomplish your dreams.
