Every Saturday (4 hours per week), students from the colleges of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vetnerary Sciences, Informatics, Natural and Computational Sciences, Agriculture and Rural Development and Technology will be trained by 16 instructors to better assist in their job finding process.
The training will include CV development, mock interviews, professional ethics, office communication, how to write application letters and the likes.
The priority for these specific disciplines to be given extra attention in the job searching process is well known because of the scarcity of jobs in those fields in Ethiopia and that is the reason why UoG catered to their needs by offering such training.
Upon completion of the training, students will be awarded certificates and then will be prepared and ready to go out into the real world to find their right place of employment.
The unemployment rate reached an all time high of 26.40 percent in 1999 but in 2015 it hit a record low of 16.80 percent. With optimism at an all time high in the country, hopes of gaining much needed job opportunities may be prioritized in the short term and this training can only help in that process.
