Introducing the Employability Boot Camp

4VTDQ367MU

Hello and welcome to FYI.

This week, we officially introduce The Employability Boot Camp. It’s a product of our strong belief in the dignity of work, and pursuit of shared prosperity wherever we go.

The recurring phrase Nigerian graduates are unemployable, points to the fact that many companies believe a gap exists between the skills needed and those possessed by school-leavers, graduates and, in most cases, existing employees. Candidates may have the qualifications and ‘hard skills’ needed on the job but, without a well-honed set of ‘soft skills’, employers are less inclined to hire.

Recent research has led to an understanding that the reasons for the “skills gap” are generally threefold:

  • For much of the last century, companies hired graduates and then trained them to do the job. But with changes in the job and careers market, including the death of ‘a job for life’, comes a reluctance to invest in the workforce. Companies fear that they will provide training only for staff to leave and join their competitors as soon as they become ‘useful’.
  • The rise in degrees and the consequent fall in vocational training and education. Graduates now have higher qualifications but fewer ‘workplace skills’: put simply, they know more, but can do less.
  • In times of high unemployment, employers have more choice of applicants and will opt for those with well-rounded capabilities.

Companies therefore want to recruit ‘job-ready’ employees who can ‘hit the ground running’. Hence, the best way to get a job in the 21st Century is to acquire those skills, and then demonstrate to potential employers that you have done so.

The #EmployabilityBootCamp helps with that.

Starting this October, we’ll be dedicating 30 hours a month to improving the skills of 10 Nigerians in different locations across the country. These participants will subsequently enjoy mentoring, form part of a database of “certified” individuals and feed into a referral system.

So what is the #EmployabilityBootCamp?

This highly interactive 6-day programme equips participants with the skills and attitudes required to find career paths, get along with colleagues, make critical decisions, solve problems, develop respect and ultimately become strong ambassadors of their organizations. It involves best practices, guides and exercises that address weaknesses in workplace essentials and improve competencies required for success.

At the end of each program, participants will be able to:

  • Set S.M.A.R.T Goals
  • Write CVs and Cover Letters
  • Fill job application forms
  • Speak and write with clarity and conciseness
  • Take responsibility and participate effectively as members of teams
  • Communicate both verbally and in writing with a wide variety of people
  • Make themselves more attractive to employers

Topics covered will include

  • Business Etiquette
  • Job Search Skills
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Personal Branding
  • Presentation Skills
  • Writing Skills

How to attend?

Prospective participants can reserve seats or make inquiries by sending emails to trainings@thefrontoffice.ng.

    Great site you have here but I was curious if you
    knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!
