“Kudos to Global Interns Company for bringing this up in this age of disruption,” he commended.

A legal practitioner and parent, Mrs Bello Geraldine, said the workshop was a welcome development, given that lots of students do not know what they are doing.

She suggested that the initiative should be taken to the grassroots where career choice mistakes are mostly made.

“They are the best people to be educated as children follow their dictates,” the lawyer stated.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Onestopmotivate, Mr Femi Adetayo, the workshop is a good initiative that students need in this present era.

According to her, the workshop would help participants to understand the know-how of career planning through engaging sessions that would offer feedback on Career Frequently Asked Questions.
