Soft Skills Scholarship for Young Pofessionals | I4G & Jobberman | Wirkish, 2021

Deadline: May 31st, 2021

The #I4GJobberman Soft Skills Scholarship Program was created to provide free soft skills training to young Nigerian Wirkers who are employed or in need of employment within the Digital or Tech Sector.

LinkedIn’s 2019 Global Talent Trends report showed that 92% of talent professionals and hiring managers say that soft skills are just as important–or more important–than hard technical skills.

Data from the National Bureau of Statistics reveals Nigeria’s unemployment and underemployment rate is a combined 55.7%. The data also reveals the worst-hit are Nigerian youths with over 13.9 million currently unemployed. Ingressive For Good desires to reduce the unemployment/underemployment rate by increasing the chances for African creatives to be hired, while also increasing their earning power. The goal is to prepare them for global job opportunities. This is why I4G has partnered with Jobberman Nigeria to help 20,000 Nigerian Wirkers build soft skills.
