Explore vast opportunities in digital transformation, IT expert urges graduates
Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Digital Bananas Technology (DBT), a United Kingdom (UK) digital company, Keji Giwa, has urged Nigerian graduates and undergraduates to leverage on the opportunities of digital technologies owing to its numerous career prospects.
Speaking on the activities of the firm’s “eWork Experience Platform,” Giwa said, gaining knowledge on digital technology would place Nigerian youths on global scale and make them highly competitive.
He said it was in realisation of this that the company in collaboration, with Career Insights, a training firm, decided to empower Nigerians with the right expertise and experience in digital transformation, digital marketing, cyber security, big data analysis, project management and business analysis and give them the opportunities to be at par with their colleagues in other climes.
Noting that over the last five years, the company had perfected its innovative and pioneering e-work platform to provide international work experience and on the job training in digital transformation to interested Nigerians, Giwa said the platform represents what Nigerian graduates and the next generation of youths require to be universally competitive.
“With over 4,000 success stories in the UK alone and now helping our candidates in Nigeria secure life-changing digital jobs abroad, we are setting our youths up for global success as we are now living not only in the digital age but a global economy.
In 2017, the company opened its DigiHub centre in Ikoyi, Lagos allowing aspiring Nigerians with a minimum bachelor degree to easily work in and collaborate with the UK, US and Canadian team using cloud based project collaborative tools.
“Today they are beginning to see the fruits of their work as candidates are now securing high paying jobs abroad directly from Nigeria,” Giwa said.
