How to overcome unemployment Edulink’s Open Day provides insightful ideas for budding entrepreneurs

  • Published:

Over 800,000 Kenyans join the job market every year; only the most refined of them get jobs while a majority ends up tarmacking for years. So how do you overcome unemployment?

Last Saturday December 3, Edulink International College Nairobi (EICN) held its Open Day at its Nairobi campus located at Adams Arcade, Ndemi Road/Ngong Road junction.

Apart from just taking students through the courses they offer, Edulink’s Open Day provided highly insightful presentations on business and entrepreneurship.

To start with, Edulink provides UK degrees for business and entrepreneurship courses from the University of Northampton.

What was discussed during the Open Day was various ways for students to sustain their startups when they go for self-employment.

Students were enlightened on how the UK degree offered at Edulink would empower them once they get out there in the real world.

Edulink also made it clear that they link their students with various market segments that they decide to focus on.

The key point that was stressed was that 3 years after completing courses at Edulink, students won’t be tarmacking in search for jobs as they would have already set groundwork for their entrepreneurship projects to pick up.

Edulink also cited a case of celebrities who have decided to join the institution to acquire UK business degree while they continue with their hustles.
