A Lecturer in the Department of Microbiology at Skyline University Nigeria (SUN), Ms. Jyoti Rajwar has reiterated that while the old idea of choosing a good career in Medicine Law, Pharmacy etc. still remained fixed, every chosen career path is important for the overall development of the economy and the development of the people who hold them. She made this remark during a ‘Changing the Gear’ seminar organized for Students of Prime College Kano on Saturday, 22nd May, 2021.
Ms. Jyoti, who defined Climate change as a long-term change in the average weather patterns that have come to define Earth’s local, regional and global climates, stated that the climate challenge is large and complex but it is very likely that many people, working from different career angles, can help address climate change and its ecological consequences. On the part of the students' career development, she stated that students have a choice to be part of a problem or part of a solution that would transform human lives.
Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor of the Skyline University Nigeria, Professor Ajith Kumar V.V, while delivering his remark, welcomed the students of Prime College Kano to the seminar. He advised the students not to underestimate their capacities when choosing a career and making decisions about the future. He added that it’s important for students to start thinking about what they want to do in the future, emphasizing the need to become job creators rather than job seekers, as there are various opportunities for startups in Nigeria. He thanked the team for putting up a wonderful event of this capacity.
