SOP Initiative Organizes Job Fair for Lagos Youths

On June 11, 2022, seasoned volunteer speakers who were also collaborating in the noble cause of youth empowerment covered three critical topics, including writing the winning CV, the recent graduates’ star attitude, and job interview tips, at a Career Seminar and Job fair titled Employability 101 organized by SOP Initiative, a non-profit organization focused on youth and community development, among other objectives.

“According to James 2: 15–16, we will not disregard the obvious solutions to meet the genuine needs of our target audience, who also constitute a sizable portion of our society; GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT,” says Seun Ayeni, president of the Lagos-based Christian youth group.

“We know that many youths in our community need a source of income right now, so in order to positively impact our generation, we are hosting a #SOPEmployability 101 Career Seminar and Fair to assist eager fresh graduates in getting a head start,” said Tunde Adenuga, the SOP Initiative’s General Administration department head.

The SOP Initiative was able to work with local businesses such as Crystal County Schools, which provided the venue and facility for this event, and Alan & Grant, a recruitment consultancy firm, which managed the job fair and exhibition. 

Although attendance at Empolyability 101 was free, more than 20 people were required to register.

“It was a beautiful experience,” said Anjorin Dolapo, a 400-level public communication student at the University of Ilorin. The facilitators spoke with us, and I learned a lot about everything from CV writing to interviewing and presenting skills. It was incredible.

Those who spoke included Ms. Peju Yusuff of Sterling Bank’s HR Department, Mrs Modupe Akinseye of ProwPeople, and the president of the SOP Initiative himself, Seun Ayeni.
