All You Need to Know About Vasiti Career Fest'20

Why Does Vasiti.com exist? 
Graduate unemployment rate in Nigeria is really high (about 45%). As a result, over 30% of students venture into entrepreneurship with hopes of building sustainable businesses and becoming employers of labour but most student businesses fail because there is no cost-effective way to advertise their products or services, and no entrepreneurship education or support to enable them thrive.

There is also no fast, easy and convenient way for students to gain access to their needs around campus and get solutions to their daily challenges.

What Exactly Does Vasiti Do?

Vasiti.com uses technology and social innovation to help student entrepreneurs build sustainable businesses and also caters to the comfort of students by providing on-demand access to their needs around campus including goods, services, accommodation and much more.

But, that is not all.

Vasiti is also all about empowering students through relevant information on our online magazine and innovative campus events. Through our events, we want students to gain deep clarity and insights about their future; by not just giving them access to the real-life experiences of professionals; but also providing every inch of guidance and support needed to build a successful career.

And this is what Vasiti Career Fest is all about.

Vasiti Career Fest was borne out of the need to help students attain clarity of focus on their career and also guide them on how to build profitable businesses. It is a first-of-its-kind highly interactive career-empowerment programme for students and it is totally different from the business as usual kind of talk.

Here’s why.

Unlike most career empowerment events, the Vasiti Career Fest will be looking at both employment and entrepreneurship and also exploring the role of education in any chosen career path. The theme for Vasiti Career Fest’20 is; Education, Entrepreneurship and Employment.

Can you think of anything that could have drawn more than five hundred students of Covenant University out of their halls; in the middle of tests and exam preparation?

Vasiti Career Fest did that.

In April 2019, Vasiti in partnership with Covenant University brought Vasiti Career Fest, themed, Employment vs Entrepreneurship; to Covenant University, and the turnout was massive.

This year, Vasiti Career Fest is coming to not just one or two, but six universities and is designed to make students think out of the box, and make connections with the three fundamental elements to building a successful career.

By being a part of Vasiti Career Fest’20, students will be able to:
  • Understand the intricacies involved in transitioning from the classroom to a competitive labor market.
  • Speak to professionals and industry experts, as well as draw from their experiences and get up-to-date information on industry trends.
  • Showcase and pitch their businesses to win hundreds of thousands of Naira in grants alongside support services for their businesses.

Meanwhile, other side-attractions at the event include giveaways, refreshment, raffle draws, etc. The first edition of Vasiti Career Fest for Year 2020 will be held on the 11th of March and hosted by Babcock University.

Stay tuned as we may be storming your campus next!

See you at Vasiti Career Fest’20!
