Microsoft, Gr8jobsng.Com drill youths on job opportunities

Microsoft in collaboration with recruitment platform, gr8jobsng.com, recently organised a Recruitment Day programme to empower Nigerian youth with job opportunities in Lagos.

Coming on the theme: “Learn and be hired!”, organizers said it was aimed at creating an opportunity for potential job seekers to meet with career experts and recruiters to understand the job market, be positioned and take advantage of available jobs.

The Recruitment Day programme is unique because of the highly-practicable learning opportunities on the spot job assessment for attendees and networking opportunities for both job seekers and recruiters.

Olusola Amusan, philanthropies Lead of Microsoft Nigeria, said “Unemployment is a global issue and its scope is growing with the youth bulge and economic downturn worldwide. Microsoft is committed to finding new solutions to address this problem”.

In her submission, Mrs Omomene, CEO U-Connect, said Gr8jobsng and Microsoft are backing employment in Nigeria, improving employability and promoting understanding among job seekers.

She said “We are giving them all the tips they require to understand what it is to be before an interviewer or panel, as well as develop the relevant skills that they require”. This would give them an edge in the overall job seeking process, including presentations, interviews and everything leading up to the actual hiring.
