HAVE A PLAN
Read forecasts on related industries and sectors going as far as 30 years, and choose your career path wisely. This will also bank on the country you come from, what applies in one may not apply in another, except you plan to relocate. We are now in the fourth industrial revolution, where industries are becoming obsolete, so be critical about the courses you want to study whether for an undergraduate degree or a Master’s.
INVEST IN A SIDE HUSTLE
Yes, this is how a lot of people in third-world countries survive, by having many streams of income. This will help you stay floating even when you are yet to secure a white-collar job or you are yet to start making a profit as an entrepreneur.

CONCENTRATE ON THE RIGHT THINGS
This is very hard to do, with so many irrelevant things imploring our awareness nowadays, varying from social media discussions to political affairs. However, if you stay concentrated and do only what is pertinent to your career growth, you will succeed, no matter how long it takes.
