Selorm Adade

Intervention: CoRe

My banking career has been given a boost. 

Selorm read banking in school and thus joined the banking and finance group of the CoRe Programme, which has given him a broader view and wider perspectives about banking. His career has just been given a boost. He shares his experience.

My name is Selorm Adade from Ashaiman in the greater Accra region. I was doing my national service at Ada in the West District Assembly when I received an SMS about the CoRe programme. Having done banking in school, I chose to join the banking and finance, consulting, investment banking and the corporate finance groups.

I would describe my experience as very eye opening, inspirational and instructive. The mentors were simply down to earth, and I’ve gained another dimension of insight into the banking sector.

I also learnt about how to start one’s career path and have a clear detailed plan on where I want to be in any chosen career path and how to work towards it. How to have a good work- life balance, being professional in my career pursuit and adhering to industry principles were also very crucial points for me which I would apply to my life and career.

I believe with time and as I consistently and steadily apply these lessons, I will reach the pinnacle of success.
