SOME SOFT SKILLS TO ADD TO YOUR MARCH GOALS
Personal Management Skills
Living with Purpose
Over fifty percent of Africa`s young men and women fail to turn their knowledge, technical and professional skills, talents and experiences into career progress, effective employment, lucrative businesses and fulfilling lives. One major reason is that while they have these hard skills, they lack the soft skills necessary for finding work, retaining jobs, starting successful micro, small or medium sized businesses, surpassing life’s dilemmas, and taking advantage of available opportunities.

Meet Naasir, a second year student of Nkumba University.
Meeting ROUTE completely changed Naasir’s life. Through our skilling program and mentoring he was able to write an outstanding CV, excel in a job interview and secure a job.
“Courtesy of the two trainings I received from ROUTE in, “How to Write a Compelling CV” and “Tactics for Succeeding at a Job Interview”, I applied for a job and passed the interview. I now have a part-time job. I’m indebted to ROUTE for the skills I acquired. I will definitely come for more skills”.

“I was extremely shy at making oral presentations in class and even talking to my lecturers. Plus, my written communication was poor. All this changed after a training in ROUTE on,” Communication Skills”. The training was practical and interactive, the trainer was professional yet, sensitive to our needs. The delivery was also fun. I have learned to speak confidently and my writing skills have greatly improved. – Ruth, first year student, Nkumba University, Entebbe
“The training modules ROUTE provides in Employability, Business and Life Skills are very unique. They are a wholistic package that equips students with essential soft skills required for the contemporary job market, business world and dynamic demands of life. These skills perfectly complement the technical skills offered by the University. I wish all our students could attend these trainings. I highly recommend them.” – Administrator, Kyambogo University, Entebbe
“Being a medical practitioner, I thought I had all it takes to practice my profession, until I received a training on, “Professionalism”. It changed the conduct of my practice. There are so many things I thought didn’t matter which actually do, and they matter a lot. I now realize that one can practice a profession without practicing professionalism. I’m now skilled for both and feel that the progression of my career is on course. Thanks to ROUTE for the training and to our Faculty for organizing it.” – Dr. Caleb, Makerere School of Public Health
“The training on, “How to Write a Compelling CV” was extremely insightful. It was an eyeopener. I kept wondering why I wasn’t being invited for interviews despite writing so many CVs. Now I understand why. I’m confident that the next CV I write will get me to the interview room. The timing of the training was spot-on.” – Juliet, Final year student, Kyambogo University, Kampala
