Preparing You for What Employers Need Most

The workplace has changed — from how we work, to where we work, to the skills required to be successful. Employers today not only focus on the hard skills that a job requires, but also the soft skills that makes an individual a valued member of any team. Companies hiring early stage career roles are looking for candidates that are problem solvers, critical thinkers, collaborative, and flexible.

The Africa Career Catalyst Programme will springboard your readiness and supercharge your appeal to potential recruiters and employers, whilst giving you a strong foundation for the broader ALX programme offerings and your future experience with The ROOM.

What You Will Learn:

  • Creating a professional CV
  • Optimising your LinkedIn profile
  • The Employer’s Perspective: What Hiring Managers Look For
  • Effective Networking
  • Pitch and Interview Techniques
  • Professional Self Awareness and Overcoming Mindset Barriers

What Will This Programme Prepare Me For?
