The Career Life Nigeria
The Founder, Yewande Jinadu is a Chemical Engineering Graduate who struggled with interviews. She was a typical graduate who went through sad and frustrating moments with her job search. Unemployment is a big issue that most graduates struggle with but feel they don’t have a chance because they are not connected to a “BIG UNCLE” in high places.
That motivated Yewande to explore human resources as a career path. Having been at both sides of the table and seeing the genuine struggle of young graduates, she decided to do something about it.
She decided to be the partner and mentor that jobseekers and young professionals need to help them achieve their career objective and get them closer to their dream job.
