Firm moves to end unemployment through online training
To help reduce unemployment among Nigerian youths, Career Insights, a subsidiary of Digital Bananas Technology, has designed an online platform through which youths can gain practical work experience in project management or business analysis.
Speaking during the launch of the platform, “Career Insight,” founder of Digital Bananas Technology, a United Kingdom (UK)-based organisation, Mr. Keji Giwa, said Nigeria must embrace global digital revolution in solving its problems.
He said since the country missed out on the industrial age, it would be terrible “if we also miss out on the digital age,” adding that the company, which has operated in the UK for about 10 years, has helped about 10,000 people to secure jobs abroad through the platform.
He said he brought the company in Nigeria to enable youths benefit from it and also receive real-world training by a team of digital project management and business analysis experts.
According to him, the firm offers comprehensive and well blended work-based learning environment with senior leadership workshops, innovative projects to work on, inspirational sessions, as well as one-to-one mentoring to help over 30 candidate secure life changing roles each month.
He said, “At Career Insights they are not just trainers but also passionate researchers, analysts, consultants and most importantly, practitioners. Meaning, the insight and advice you get is completely up to date and relevant to your chosen industry so you can be confident that what you are learning is cutting edge.”
He said with a monthly subscription, participants get to work with others on live digital projects to give them a life changing experiences.
“The platform will be of immense benefit to graduates as the more work experience you have as a graduate, the stronger your chances of securing a well-paid role relevant to your educational and career status.
On the level of experience needed to be on the platform, he said, “one does not require much experience to be on the platform, all we require is for you to have a strong desire to succeed, not afraid to get your hands dirty, willing to learn and apply yourself.”
Stressing that the business under the platform has grown in leaps and bounds, he said, “When one of the candidates secures a project management or business analysis role as a result of the ‘e-workexperience,’ they tend to tell their friends and family members, which in turn generates more business for the company.
