The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has launched a curriculum vitae, CV, web repository and job portal in furtherance of its drive at ensuring the post-service welfare of corps members.
The portal, a brain child of the NYSC Lagos State Coordinator, the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development, SAED, team, has a group of corps members with Dragnet Solutions, Blogme Nigeria Limited, Gr8jobs Limited, Sigma Pensions and Diamond Bank Plc as partners.
Director General of NYSC, Brigadier General S. Z. Kazaure, who launched the portal in Lagos, said it is aimed at providing the links between outgoing corps members seeking white collar jobs and employers of labour, who desire to employ qualified graduates based on their jobs specifications.
He added that it was why the NYSC considers it appropriate to buy into the idea of helping corps members to package themselves for employability in the highly-competitive labour market.
Vice President, Business Development, West, Sigma Pensions Limited, Mrs. Mabel George, who expressed satisfaction at the launch, said: “Our job is basically about helping people to plan for their future and this portal makes everyone employable.”
