The X-Factor Skill Program

The School environment and the ever evolving job market are two different worlds. There is a huge disparity between what students are being exposed to within the four walls of college or the university, and the real needs in the workplace. This disparity has been responsible for the ever increasing number of unemployed and underemployed graduates, and the seemingly shrinking job opportunities.

To bridge this gap, The X-Factor Skill Program has been designed to provide fresh graduates and entry level graduates with quality education for employment! Allow us equip you with the requisite knowledge, skill, character, exposure and experience you need to be a great hire!

"I was in dire need of a job after I left where I worked because I lacked fulfillment. I wanted a job role that was in line with my passion- education, and i sought to develop a career in it. I got introduced to E-Konsult and in Partnership with Ark Resources, I got profiled and got opportunity to be interviewed at a school. I ended up getting the job as an intern school administrator since I had no prior experience. After a while, I was confirmed the School Administrator and till date, It has been an impactful and fulfilling journey."

"I hunted for a Job for close to two years post NYSC.While waiting, I volunteered to work as an intern at E-konsult though I wasn't skilled. Over time, i learnt some basic job skills and was opportuned to attend several trainings, one of which was the career coaching program. I got to discover my ideal career path and was placed under a mentor who trained me on graphic designing, for free. Through the job trainings and career exposure, I applied for jobs, got more than one and had to choose.Now I currently work with a real estate company as a graphic designer and content creator and I've received a pay raise twice on the job.Thanks to Ekonsult."

"My journey into fashion started while I was seeking admission into the university. I had already gone through a formal training in tailoring but I wasn't sure I wanted to pursue it.
I came in contact with E-konsult while in school and I had the opportunity to attend one of the career programs which helped me greatly . I was able to identify my passion, strength and define my career path in the area of fashion and designing . I knew I needed training and other resources to build my skill but didn't know how to go about it.
Through E-konsult , I got an internship opportunity with a fashion academy and after the period of training as an intern I was offered the position of a fashion instructor. Today, I run my own fashion brand, Avriellebyolabisi all thanks to the E-konsult team."
