It is a well-known fact that the workplace is an entirely different ball game from the school. Success in school hardly guarantees success in the workplace, just as non-success in academics hardly makes one a failure in the workplace. The skill-set needed to excel in the workplace can sometimes be different from that from that needed in school. It is in recognition of this truism that JarusHub has put in place JarusHub Career Academy (JCA), as a bridge to connect the two.
JCA is a 5-weekend course where employability and career improvement lessons are taught. It involves not just theory but practical. Top executives and professionals from Corporate Nigeria have been co-opted as partners for this programme.
The course is in two categories:
A, JCA GRADUATE CLASS (JCA GC): This is for students, corps members and fresh graduates who are still unemployed or underemployed. This class is essentially focusing on EMPLOYABILITY.
B, JCA PROFESSIONAL CLASS (JCA PC): This is for people that are already working but wish to improve their careers. Essentially, the goal here is CAREER ADVANCEMENT.
The course takes place over 5 weekends. Sunday, 4-7pm.
The classroom sessions hold at the training room of JarusHub office, 59, Queen Street, Alagomeji, Yaba, Lagos.
As part of the practical session, each batch will however go on tour to the office of a selected executive who will receive the graduating enrollees at his office in Victoria Island or elsewhere.
