What Makes Africa the Most Exciting Continent Today?

There has been a remarkable turnaround in the Africa story; from a relentlessly negative portrayal of the continent to one that highlights the increasing number of success stories that can be found.

Where Africa was once solely portrayed as a high risk proposition, today’s stories of enterprise, creativity, and commercial success have generated a greater desire on the part of both Africans and non-Africans to be part of the economic turnaround of the continent.

At the same time as the global economic crisis and resultant slowdown has hit the jobs market in Europe and the United States hard, Africa is on the rise.

While many African countries offer a wealth of opportunities for a wide range of careers across many sectors, you need to plan your approach to give yourself the best chance to identify and get the job you want.
