The National Youth Service Corps has developed NYSC CV bank and job portal in response to the needs of corps members who are desirous of paid employment, despite efforts to make them self-employed through the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Programme.
Disclosing this on Friday was the State Coordinator NYSC Gombe, Mrs. Ada Imoni, during the 2021 Batch B Stream II SAED Closing Ceremony/Exhibition, held at NYSC Temporary Orientation Camp Amada, Gombe State.
Imoni maintained that the portal was a platform for corps members who are about exiting the Scheme to upload soft and video copies of their curriculum vitae for easy access by employers.
“NYSC has developed a job portal and CV bank for those who desire to have white collar jobs,” Imoni enthused.
While encouraging corps members to continue with their chosen skills at their various places of primary assignment, Imoni said that the hands-on training they got in camp was not conclusive but rather meant to arouse their interest to enlist for further intensive training in any skills of their choice after the orientation camp.
About 900 corps members who participated in the skills acquisition hands-on training were prepared for service year as entrepreneurs.
