Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) aims to add value in the job market with the upcoming IT Job and Career fairs. NCS holds its next job fair in Abuja (at the Abuja Sheraton Hotel & Towers) on Tuesday 28th May, 2013. The previous fair was held in Lagos in March 2013. Though the job fairs are free to attend, interested participants need to register with NCS before the event.
NCS will in addition provide organizations that employ IT professionals with unique opportunities to deliver presentations, exhibit and showcase career opportunities in their organizations, as well as present other useful job/career engagement tools.
IT adds value in all sectors, but job creation and career development are the heart of sustainable development in the IT driven knowledge economy. NCS aims to harness the potential of IT to create jobs by developing strategic partnerships with firms, employers, recruiters, employment agencies, professionals and job seekers in the IT environment. Already the first fair has raised the need for better understanding of job and career needs in the knowledge solution society.
The IT sector has immense job creating potential but jobs will not just happen overnight. There is a need for better engagement and empowerment in the IT jobs and career development scene. Young people in IT need to develop relevant capacities and gain useful experiences. This initiative is directed at empowering young people to seize the initiative in building a vibrant IT industry in Nigeria. NCS is committed to creating focused Job and Career platforms for the IT industry.
NCS Information Technology Lagos and Abuja job fair activities are directed at:
- giving final year students and young graduates an edge in the competitive job market,
- providing employers with a unique, cost effective avenue to attract suitable young talent and recruit potential employees
- addressing the youth and graduate unemployment situation in Nigeria and
- promoting youth innovation and development to address developmental challenges and achieve overall prosperity in the country through information technology.
