Honeywell urges corps members to be creative
Honeywell Flour Mills Plc has urged graduates to sharpen their skills and utilize their God-given talents to earn a living, as white-collar jobs are becoming increasingly elusive.
The Managing Director of the company, Lanre Jayeola, who stated this on Tuesday at the Honeywell Wheatmeal Cooking Competition held at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Lagos State camp, Iyana Ipaja, also reiterated the company’s readiness to continuously invest in youth development and engagement activities, saying such action would bring out the best in Nigeria’s future leaders and make them more focused and ambitious.
“Every individual has innate skills which when properly harnessed will push them beyond their limitations. My advice to the youth corps members is to embrace entrepreneurship by delving into activities in which they are naturally endowed. By doing this, they will be saving themselves the agony of looking for non-existing white collar jobs”, he said.
Jayeola, represented by the Technical Marketing Manager, Brega Fabusuyi, noted that with the competition, the company is utilizing the opportunity provided by the unique change point of the youth corps members who are basically future mothers and fathers by introducing to them the company’s products so as to appreciate them with a view to shaping their choice of food items in future.
