Today’s episode of the podcast, is a follow-up to Episode 26.

On this episode, I shared on a topic titled “Enhancing Graduates Employability”, this subject is close to my heart as a Career & Employability Coach.

Let me open with this quote by Anon – “Going to college won’t guarantee you a job, but it’ll give you four years to worry about getting one”. [bctt tweet=”Going to college won’t guarantee you a job, but it’ll give you 4 years to worry about getting one – Anon” username=”segunakiode”]

In this episode, you will learn:

  • That Employability refers to a person’s capability for gaining and maintaining employment.
  • That Employability depends on the knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSAs) individuals possess and the way they present those assets to employers.
  • That Employability skills are the skills you have developed inside and outside of school that you can transfer to the workplace.
  • That the tertiary education system in Nigeria has failed on many fronts to achieve the purpose of preparing graduates for the world of work. Hence, fresh graduates in Nigeria need to take their ‘employability destiny’ in their hands and not leave it to chance.
