Evolve Africa’s freelance program is designed to set interested individuals up for the present and immediate future work in the IT world. Its no longer news that well paying firms now demanding for years of experience as one of the criteria for employment. This is near impossible!
Before I graduated from the higher institution, I already had two (2) experience in video editing. Sounds magical? Well its not, I was rather working and studying. But it was so difficult for me because I had to miss some classes and even quiz.
In the freelance onboarding program, our students are going home with two things; The skill(s) you acquired and Attachment to startup(s). Our recent graduates have just been attached to early stage startups. They will absorb and give them the growth platform while they use their newly acquired skill to serve the startups.
So it’s a win-win for both parties. While the startups enjoy their services, the graduates acquire the experience needed by the bigger firms. We have set out on this mission to empower African entrepreneurs and young people alike. We are taking it one step at a time.
