The National Social Security Fund (NSSF) in partnership with the Monitor Publications Limited (MPL) has launched the annual career expo that will take place in 11 universities across the country.

This year the 10-day career expo from March 13, 2017 to April 26, 2017, will be graced by students from Makerere University, Kyambogo University, Mutesa I University, Uganda Martyrs University- Nkozi,  Ndejje University and Nkumba University. Others are the Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST), Kampala International University (KIU), Gulu University and the Islamic University in Uganda.

And, while addressing students at Makerere University today, NSSF Deputy Managing Director Geraldine Ssali advised students be innovative and and seek for career advancement opportunities, with a view to saving in the future.

She also advised the students on skills initiatives and on how they can gradually rise through the ranks of their careers in case they are employed.

“For one to have a successful career he /she needs to have a combination of both soft and hard managerial skills,” Ms Ssali told the students.

On his part the Monitor Publications Managing Director Tony Glencross promised to create more opportunities to help university students to gain access to professional career advice so that they are more prepared to take advantage of any employment opportunities on the market.

Further, Mr Glencross urged the students to develop a spirit of volunteerism, saying it helps prepare one for the job market.

In Uganda over 100,000 university students graduate every single year, with few able to access jobs.
