On Friday, 3rd June, Absa hosted the Dope Campus Tour at Moi University, Eldoret where students got to learn about the bank’s ReadytoWork Program which seeks to help fresh graduates get ready for the job market.
Moi University was the first stop of a series of Dope Campus Tours that will go around different campuses across the country.
Here are some snaps from the activation event.
So, What is ReadytoWork from Absa?
The ReadytoWork app is a FREE training program that aims to provide young people with the knowledge and skills to improve their employability and entrepreneurial opportunities.
Real talk… Being jobless after graduation is a nightmare!
When it comes to job hunting, your degree should provide you with a huge advantage; however, without the requisite soft skills and work readiness knowledge, you may find yourself stuck looking for graduate positions for weeks or months after graduation.
Through the ReadytoWork App, Absa seeks to bridge the gap between the hard skills you learn in your coursework and the soft skills you need to secure employment.
The App comprises online content, skills training, and job exposure, delivered through world-class learning resources focusing on work, people, money, and entrepreneurial skills.
