Press Release: PoiseGFA Unveils Employability Package for Graduates

securedownloadAs part of efforts aimed at enhancing the employability skills and job search efforts of graduates in the country, Poise Graduate Finishing Academy (PoiseGFA), a subsidiary of Poise Nigeria – an organization committed to solving the employability challenge in the country – has unveiled a new product christened PSENSE Basic Office ICT Proficiency Test.

Endorsed by the Presidency and the National Universities Commission (NUC), the PSENSE Basic Office ICT Proficiency Test is an Employability Skills Certification designed to measure the work preparedness of graduates, equip them with the prerequisite workplace skills sought by most employers and help them succeed in the work environment.

Commenting on the initiative, Head, PoiseGFA, Ukinebo Dare noted that “with information and technology growing at an expansive rate, companies seek to hire certified top talents. Employers are most interested in recruiting people who do not only say on their CV that they know how to use Office ICT Tools but can also prove their competency when the need arises. The big question therefore is how do I as a graduate prove my proficiency to organizations? The need to help graduates fill this gap, she stated gave rise to the PSENSE Basic Office ICT Proficiency Test, a platform built to serve as a credible and objective checkpoint of a graduate jobseeker’s work-related skills.

Speaking further, Dare added that aside from measuring an individual’s proficiency level in the use of work related tools required for optimal performance at the work place particularly ICT tools, PSENSE provides registered candidates study materials for self-study. “This is a unique certification as it also offers theoretical and practical know-how. That is why upon registration candidates are provided with detailed learning and study materials designed to help them prepare for and ace the certification test. There is ample room for the candidate to learn at his own pace”.

The PoiseGFA boss also noted that PSENSE certified candidates are top targets by employers as many organizations across different industries in the country have endorsed and embraced the certification as a veritable means of screening the right candidate for employment. She stated that upon completion of the test, candidates already registered on the GradExchange – the first and only platform in the world that enables competitive sourcing of graduates for full time and part time employment –have the added advantage of uploading their test score to their GradExchange profile, thus gaining greater visibility to employers and increasing their employment opportunities. She therefore urged youths to register for and get the PSENSE certification as it gives them the competitive edge needed to get their dream jobs.
