University students tend to graduate unprepared for the job search, this in-part is caused by the lack of know-how on what to do when it comes to entering the job market. This is why dereja.com partners with Ethiopian universities to train career counselors across the country. Career counselors should be equipped with the necessary skills to better train students on how to enter and function in the working world. Instructors and career counselors that have completed the training will be able to help visiting students in structuring their next steps after graduation.
This past week the Dereja.com team traveled to Debre Berhan University(DBU) to deliver the training. The event was attended by 21 instructors that will be advising graduating students this year. DBU is the 11th public university to partner with Dereja.com for career counseling services since 2017.
