Mr Daniel Owusu Agyapong, the Chief Executive Director of DANWUS Consulting has stated that it is good to have good mentorship in order to develop careers.
Speaking at a Career Advancement Symposium for tertiary students in Accra, he said honesty and diligence were also key to executing tasks as every Job market would not employ a dishonest worker.
