Highlight from the Employability Workshop

Employability Workshop

Saturday, July 14th was an amazing time at the recently held Employability Workshop. Participants were greatly impacted as they learnt about how to plan their careers, set career goals and create action plans for achieving their goals with Tokunbo Fasoro, skills employers want and how to develop these skills with Tosin Adekanmbi, they also learnt how to communicate before getting a job, talking about things as little as having a conversation with a friend to a referral or even an interview panel with Zika Nwaise and How to use your social media handles to sell¬†yourself and get your desired job with David Williams. Sessions were interesting and engaging with our facilitators as participants were already taking personal decisions to implement what they had learnt and use the acquired knowledge positively to equip themselves for a fruitful and more engaging job and career hunt. There was also a breakout surprise session as participants took out time to wish a member of the BI Solutions team a happy birthday which was accompanied with some gifts and cake.   In summary, the workshop was educative and fun filled and we look forward to impacting more youths.
