Mecardo are pleased introduce Josh Peters as a guest author, who will be writing a series of articles to assist both job seekers & recruiters. In this first article, Josh discusses the importance of good communication, and how it can improve teams.

“For students starting a 4-year degree, half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.”
This was one of the startling facts I learnt recently from a YouTube post discussing the rate of change and innovation that has occurred around the world and is predicted for the future.
