BENIN CITY – The Managing Director of Edo State Skills Development Agency also known as EdoJobs, Hon. Mrs. Ukinebo Dare has admonished youths seeking employment to discard the notion that their educational qualifications alone will give them employment in the job market.
The MD who was the guest speaker at the grand finale of St Paul Catholic Church, Benin City ‘ youth week which held at the parish Youth Centre yesterday said “educational qualifications alone is not the alpha and omega when it comes to seeking for job, some employers don’t even care what class of degree you graduate with but the value you can add to the organization.”
Mrs. Dare rather encouraged the youths to acquire skills and attitudes that will make them attractive to employers in the job market irrespective of their educational qualifications.
She also used the occasion to tell the youths and job seekers in Edo state about EdoJobs which specializes in job opportunities, trainings, career development among others. ” EdoJobs simply connects people to earning opportunities” she said.
Hon. Dare urged the youths to maximize the opportunities the Agency provides as they are: “the ones to transform their circumstances”. She noted that the opportunities provided by EdoJobs can be assessed by everybody resident in Edo State.
