Seminar on job seeking techniques organized in Tamale
By Joseph Ziem
About 500 graduates and students in the Northern Region have attended a 2 day youth orientation seminar to receive training on how to write attractive Curriculum Vitae to secure jobs.
The innovation among other interventions sought to re-orient the psyche of unemployed graduates to develop the sight of moving into private entrepreneurship in order to reduce Ghana’s unemployment rate.
The seminar dubbed, “Northern Ghana Youth Orientation Initiative Training Seminar” was sponsored by Ajan Social Network in collaboration with the World Bank Ghana Office, Action-Aid Ghana and Alaye Consults last Thursday.
Saani Bashiru, a resource person and also Consultant to Alaye consults said the seminar would be used as a calculated attempt to educate the unemployed graduate on how to make productive use of their talent.
He regretted that the unavailability of job opportunities in the three regions of the North has rendered graduates infertile.
Mr. Bashiru bemoaned that the situation is worrying hence the need to impact knowledge on the unemployed graduates to devise means of making good living.
He disclosed that the second phase of the seminar would be replicated in the Upper East and Upper West Regions.
In a speech read for him, Moses Bukari Mabengba, the Northern Regional Minister lauded the seminar under the theme: “Preparing the young graduate for the entrepreneurship and the job market” and urged the participants to put into practice the knowledge shared with them.
Mr. Mabengba reiterated government’s commitment to create employment opportunities for the youth but appealed to them to take advantage of such seminars to create their own enterprises.
