Thank you for your Support in June

As we start a new month we would wish to thank you all for the support you have given our lab this far. We had a buzz of activity in June that was made possible through your support.

Rock Your Profile

We started the month by holding our First Event in partnership with LinkedIn.We had the privilege to host Stewart Samkange who is the LinkedIn Talent Solutions Africa. He shared insights on how to build a strong brand presence on Linkedin to attract the right opportunities. The Event was dubbed #RockYourProfile.
