KIU, Main Campus - We are 50 days into the lockdown today, what have you done to improve yourself?

What's your key area of competence? What are your talents? And what have you done to improve them?

Adopting a little by little approach with the commitment to life long learning will have endless benefits to you.


Use Your Social Media Productively


Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram among others have given us a diverse platform to explore our enterprises, share ideas and also market our craft. You can use social, media to connect with experts who can easily introduce you to new ideas in line with your career. It can also help you build traffic for your work or business.
