We strongly encourage you to participate in the following programmes, which are designed to prepare Ashesi students for your company.
“A Day in the Life of” Series
The “A day in the Life of” Seminar series provides students the opportunity to gain first hand insider information from a professional in an industry of interest. Professionals sign up to share with students what a typical day in their professions look like. They uncover the misconceptions students have about their professions and let the students in on the realities of pursuing such a profession. This we believe will better prepare our students to make realistic career decisions to appropriately fit into the corporate world when they leave school. Continuing students will also be able to generate ideas for internships that will lead them on the path to their chosen careers.
If you are a professional or experienced in your career and are interested in participating in the “A Day in the Life of” Seminar series, kindly contact the Career Services Center at the address or numbers given on this page.
