“Getting employment in Nigeria may be difficult, but not impossible. With the right skill sets and the right mindset you are well on your way out of the unemployment market!” These were the words of Mr Joseph Ebata, the President of Bervidson Retail Group, the promoters of the Retail Academy at the graduation ceremony of the first set of the Retail Training & Internship Program – RTIP 1 of the Retail Academy recently in Lagos.
In his lecture, the Mind-set of a Successful Retail Associate, Mr Ebata charged the graduating students to have the right mindset and attitudes, if they are to make a successful career working in retail as well as in life.
RTIP is aimed specifically at training unemployed youths in the art and science of retailing to improve their chances of employability and successful careers in retail. RTIP is a one month program that involves both classroom lectures, short internship in a retail organisation and a group retail research work. Speaking with the graduating students, many testified that the Retail Academy is a blessing to them, particulary as many of them have already secured employment well before completing the program, thanks to the internship opportunity in a retail organisation provided by the program.
Speaking also of the richness of the content and delivery, the graduating students said that the program exposed them to the world of retail and the huge opportunities in the industry.
