Future Careers Ghana to hold career fair in Tema

Future Careers Ghana, a leading careers education provider in Ghana, is set to hold a career fair for students and graduates at the ECG Training School in Tema on Saturday, August 20th, 2022 from 9am to 4pm. 

The career fair, dubbed “Discover Study and Work Opportunities Abroad,” is aimed at helping the Ghanaian youth bridge the career guidance and counseling gap and enable them familiarise themselves with career opportunities available. 

Participants will be presented with a one-on-one career guidance and counselling session that will help them understand the career options available and how to pursue them taking into consideration their strengths and weaknesses.

Students and young school leavers will receive psychometric assessment by trained Career Development Officers (CDOs) that will help them link their skills, talents and personalities to the suitable courses that will enable them succeed in their career choices.

Registered participants will also have the opportunity to meet Professor Vivek Ramnarian and Mrs. Darshini Pouvanum Samynaden, the Vice Chancellor and Marketing Manager respectively of Amity Institute of Higher Education, Mauritius who will give on the spot application and admissions at the fair.

The focus of Future Careers Ghana is to address the educational and employment support needs of youth in Ghana, giving them a clear direction to build a successful career.

Mr. Papi-Paulo Zigah, the Director of International Operations at Future Careers Ghana explained that the organization was committed to guiding and supporting young people to make informed choices regarding their careers.

He said, “it was a key strategy of the organization to partner with Amity from Mauritius to afford students in Ghana the opportunity to travel and experience other educational system that will empower them to meet the challenges of a dynamic job market.” 

“We are holding this Career Fair to arm participants with tools that will help them make informed choices about the courses to study abroad and most especially get into future careers that appeals or suit their personalities.”

Mr Zigah pointed out that it was not prudent for a child to be forced into a particular career either by his/her parent, guardians or friends as making a wrong career choice would jeopardize that child’s future.

He noted that there were several cases of children doing courses that were chosen by their parents or working in organisations that do not align with their skills or personalities and that has made them unhappy.

He urged the students to use the fair as an opportunity to receive tips they will find useful in making choices that will give them comfort and career stability in the future.

To attend the Career Fair, interested participants should call 024 859 0045 or 024 775 0999 for registration and further enquiries.
