IT NEWS NIGERIA:
Education is nothing if not directed at solving a social challenge or helping the educated attain a level of passion-fulfillment in society.
Bearing this in mind, eBusiness Life Communication Limited has set things in place towards hosting stakeholders in all sectors of the economy to a one-day Career Fair holding in Lagos in November 2019.
The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and the Digital Bridge Institute (DBI) have indicated interest in partnering with eBusiness Life in this maiden edition of the Fair.
The one-day eBusiness Life ICT Career Fair 2019 presents an opportunity for companies to showcase what products and services they have that are geared towards enhancing career prospects of Nigerians. It will be an avenue for participating organisations to show their alignment towards developing skills in Nigeria.
According to the convener and Chief Executive Officer, eBusiness Life, Mrs. Ufuoma Emuophedaro, this event seeks to bring together stakeholders that are involved in shaping and encouraging professionalism in the ICT industry. These will include both government and private sector agencies and companies. Participation will also transverse Recruitment Agencies, ICT Training Institutes, ICT service users, among others.
It will further have a session for an exhibition of products and services by participating organisations. Programme for the event will also include a seminar on entrepreneurship opportunities.
The Fair with the theme: “ICT Career: Laying The Blocks For The Future”, will be an open Fair for students, individuals planning on changing careers to ICT or those trying to understand more of ICT.
NITDA, the country’s Information Technology (IT) regulatory agency as we know, has a mandate to enter into strategic alliance with the private sector as well as international organizations for the actualization of the IT vision and also the development of human capital with emphasis on creating and supporting a knowledge-based economy. A role NITDA has performed very well.
In the same vein, DBI has a mandate to promote the development of human resources capacity by training personnel in the telecoms and ICT sectors of the economy, as well as educating future leaders in technology industries of all kinds. A role DBI has performed very well and is still performing to date.
