To transition means to change from one thing to another, like when a caterpillar transitions into a butterfly, and in our case we are talking about transitioning from a student, or graduate and diving straight into the world of work. Just like any process of growth, transitioning may be uncomfortable and uneasy, however, the key is adaptation and being open to learning.
Going into the world of work is a very big shift from being a student, it’s a shift from
a lot of theory and long deadlines to a lot more pressure. In all this, your perspective of the ‘real world’ and your vision of your career may change, it may either be a positive or negative change, however you should always stay true to your values
and principles, and most of all making it through this transition is all about making yourself valuable.

Extended Lockdown and COVID-19 related arrangements
It has been a few weeks since we last communicated with you about the impact of COVID-19 on our business. Sadly, since that time, we have all borne witness to how this insidious virus is impacting our families, our communities and our very way of life. What we are facing is daunting, but I am heartened by the moments of triumph in everyday acts of courage, humanity and love. Although these are trying times for us all, I remain optimistic that our world will thrive once again.
