Saying rumor has it that digital breakthrough as taken away many jobs would be untrue, it is the reality. Many jobs have gone extinct and more will join, going by the rate of technological advancement but do they know that even more jobs are being created?

They should know that there are areas to specialist and build a career on and especially how these career options are open to all, irrespective of their educational background.
These slides further clarify on who can pursue a career in digital which is basically anyone and everyone. Do stress it to them that they do not need a background in science since they apparently already have a university degree or at least an equivalent.
HOW TO GET STARTED
By now, questions on ‘how to’ would have risen in the hearts of the corp members. The how is simple, it begins with a simple click on bit.ly/mtgng. Kindly take time to ensure that as many as possible actually sign in to the online course during this session and take a few lessons.

Another very much needed app is Google Files Go. This is a solution to mobile memory space which most, if not all job seekers would be able to relate to. Trainers should explain how the app works and emphasis why all trainees need to download it.
