‘How to tackle youth unemployment’
Concerned by the increased cases of unemployment confronting graduates, experts have proffered ways of addressing the menace and position our graduates to be globally competitive.
Human resources expert, Fanibe Oluwadunmi at a workshop for young graduates on attending job interviews maintained that there is a need to discover self and harness the self–discovery into valuable ventures.
The workshop was an interactive and on-hand training from well-educated and highly sought young entrepreneurs, to motivate them to gain knowledge on how to harness the power that lies within them as youths for global impact.
According to her, training the youth on employment and leadership skills is a passion and a call to service.
Oluwadunmi gave some value tips and nuggets for job interviews, personal development, grooming, values, skills and characters showcased during interviews.
The human resources coach advised participants to avoid saying negative words and lies about their previous employers and organisations, but tie their answers to their strengths and not on their weaknesses.
She urged individuals to invest more on themselves as a tool for economic empowerment and societal development, by engaging, educating and empowering them to live a life of purpose, significance and relevance.
Speaking to one of participants, Mr. John Eze, he appreciated the platform and trainers for assisting youths to take their positions in national development, improve on their mindsets and add value to the society.
“The entrepreneurship skills workshop has groomed, package and fortify us to meet up with the modern challenge. the training also helped us to be alive to our responsibilities, socially; economically and improve leadership skills; using the platform for them to unleash their dreams and potentials to build a better society.”
