The HEADSHIP Program is a leading and innovative edifying platform that assists students, fresh graduates, as well as professionals, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and career shifters with the necessary skills and tools required for the job market, and the highly challenging and rapidly evolving business world.

The Program can be described as a talent placement initiative that addresses the challenges faced in accessing job opportunities with real career impact.

 

Optimistic Vision

The program aims to bridge the growing gap between the busy schedule and subject matter curriculum of the academic world that might be overlooking essential career skills needed for people to excel and shine individually and collectively apart from their acquired technical knowledge.

The Program success factors are ultimately measured by opening doors to valuable prospects and by striving to match talent into a corresponding work environment, through internship facilitation and continual support and counselling as needed.

Our focus is to open a window of opportunities for our clients’ career path within the framework of a three-day boot camp, through:

  • Training on primary skills essential for the job market

  • Opening a window of opportunities by our internship package
  • Sustaining channels of communications to withstand support and guidance
  • Offering interactive panel discussions with leading executives and entrepreneurs
  • Offering internship opportunities as required by participating organizations and as available and reasonably achievable; to that purpose, the Program sustains a relationship with several companies across various sectors and sizes to understand their needs for interns and related qualifications required, and to provide the best efforts to fulfill them
