He noted that with the ever-evolving and competitive job market, career path is more about being adaptive in this digital age and understanding the skills in high demand, and those facing potential extinction. “Kudos to Global Interns Company for bringing this up in this age of disruption,” he said.

Mrs Bello Geraldine, a legal practitioner and parent, said the workshop is a welcome development, as lots of students do not know what they are doing. She added that the initiative should be taken to the grassroots where career choice mistakes are mostly made. 

Geraldine maintained that making wrong choices and being stereotyped has to do with their parents that should be educated. “They are the best people to be educated as children follow their dictates,” Bello stated. 

Mr Femi Adetayo, the Chief Executive Officer of Onestopmotivate, believes the workshop is a good initiative that students need in this present era. He described it as unique and Global Interns Company should be commended for this uncommon initiative.
