Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

We believe in managing talent wherever it may be found, from primary all the way to tertiary institutions, and in workplaces. Through our special Axis TM initiatives, we seek to challenge existing perceptions about careers and to support progressive and innovative approaches to career planning and development. Our aim is to expose people from childhood to adulthood to the world of work, introducing them to diverse career options and opportunities, presenting them with resources to enhance their career development and helping them to excel in their chosen fields, fuelled by their passion.

We are very passionate about investing in young people, and a lot of our activities are geared towards their career development.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Our workshops are very interactive. Our efforts include, but are not limited to the following:

Axis Talent Management services for young people, from Primary to Tertiary levels

•    Facilitating an exploration of unlimited career options for young people
•    Leadership development through mentoring and supportive programs
•    Realistic and feasible exposure to the world of work - career coaching/planning - cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset etc, CV writing workshops etc...
•    Business Communication - CV writing, personal, professional correspondence, report writing etc...
•    We embark on an active campaign to raise the awareness of career options open to students through field trips, workshops, documentaries etc...
•    We provide students not only with exposure, but with practical experience in their chosen fields through internships/attachments
•    We believe in assisting students to be innovative in creating niches for themselves in which they can excel, rather than grooming themselves for existing jobs only.
•    Ultimately, we would like to challenge and facilitate educational reform in which different areas of study are all valued and none are stigmatized. We would like to see a philosophical change in how we see and understand education. (Look out for our Axis Foundation Programs!)

Axis Professional Talent Management services

•    Talent Retention strategies - we help companies to identify talent in their organization and to design strategies to keep and grow their best employees

We will sit with them and strategize, and map out their involvement. Where we don't offer the services they need, we will refer them to other resources - financial institutions etc...
•    Niche Professional Development Opportunities - our aim is to equip individuals in specific professional areas with entrepreneurial skills to develop themselves and to address some of their specific needs.
