Finishing University education can leave young Nigerians wondering seriously about the future.
Most times, questions like; how will my first job interview go? For young school leavers questions like. What does life after university hold for me?
The Skills Development Workshop is a forum where the organizers attempt to bridge this gap through providing FREE capacity building training (all through 2016) to fresh graduates and undergraduates, new hires in organizations, and even mid-career people who do not have sound early training in their careers. We hope that by this, we would have supported young people who have no other opportunity, to acquire basic skills required by most employers today.
The Skills Acquisition Workshop has indeed been a success since inception judging by participant feedback on the modules that they trained on, which include topics like:
- Get invited to that Interview (with role plays) – facilitated by Ibanga Udofia
- Communication Skills – facilitated by Chineze Oluwatoye Gabriel
- Sales Skills that Win – facilitated by Omatsola Barrow
- Business Engagements with Big Companies –facilitated by Leostan Eke
Other topics that have been discussed include:
- Interviewing for success (with role plays).
- Interpersonal Skills.
- A CV that gets you a Job.
- Surviving Office Politics.
- Presentation Skills.
- Writing Skills
This edition, which holds at Fuse Lounge and event center, will focus on Managing your Boss
These above listed are just a few of the extensive trainings on offer.
It gets better, for no fees but based on identified career needs, the platform provides an opportunity to be invited to facilitate a session within an organisation or professional interest groups.
The brain behind The Skills Development Workshop, Harold Nwariaku, a core professional decided to provide this platform, having observed a widening gap between what Nigerian Universities prepare students for in the job market, and the requirements recruiters have put in place for their employable candidates.
