Graduates implored to be ethical


Vice President Ponatshego Kedikilwe has implored the 2014 Limkokwing University graduates to practice high standards of ethical conduct as they venture into the job market.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony on Thursday Kedikilwe urged the graduates to tighten their seat belts as they navigate a new journey as prospective employees and employers.  “The moment of truth has arrived for my job now is to offer you to the university of life,” he said.  Kedikilwe underscored the importance of graduates creating their own employment by starting their own enterprises. He said while some of the graduates would end up in formal employment, it was important for them to set high goals and consider dabbling in business ventures never tried before.

“I regard you as future leaders of the world and in my conception the future is now, you should go out there and use the endless opportunities but in some instances you should realize that you could be the opportunity,” he noted.  He advised those who plan to start their own businesses to persevere and not call it quits when the going gets tough. The vice president quoted former South African president Nelson Mandela’s famous words, “The glory in living lies not in never falling, but rising everytime we fall.” He noted that these words should serve as motivation when new entrepreneurs experience problems in their businesses.
