On Saturday, the 13th of April, the first Vasiti Career fest was piloted at Covenant University, Otta. The event which is a start to many others like it challenged employment and entrepreneurship.
It is not uncommon to find many Nigerian students who are stuck in making this tough decision as they progress in life.
Nowadays, this stand is difficult to take, employment VS entrepreneurship, as the situation in many Nigerian schools are centred on students studying for the sake of landing a good-paying ‘9 to 5’ plan.
As interesting and settling as it sounds, some other students in their undergraduate days are not even sure of what they want and those who have a little idea, lack the required guidance and help to bring their dreams to fruition.
The Vasiti Career fest welcomed students from the campus and around to partake in several interactive session of enlightenment towards several career paths, the event which received a huge turnout was championed and hosted by one of Covenant University’s finest student Toluwalase Afilaka.
Refreshed by Grand Malt, Vasiti career harboured great and amazing speakers who shed not only light and guidance to eager students but were available to answer questions where necessary, from the likes of Temitope Richard-Banji who spoke on how to decide if to be an entrepreneur or an employee. The event progressed with the appearance of the gorgeous Etiemana Idaresit, who showed the need for goal setting as a tool for building a successful career as an employee.
Other Speakers included DR. Abiodun Adereni who spoke on how to start small but with passion, Tiawo Awoojudu who revealed all the pitfalls to avoid when starting a career, Tochi Ginigeme bringing all the information on the right ethics everyone needs and how to master them.
Femi Balogun shared the essential need of leadership for career success and Eladadavid Kehinde Samuel who shed light on
knowing if one is entirely ready to be an entrepreneur (or not).
