Over two thousand one hundred (2,100) graduands of the Central University have been conferred with degrees in several fields of academic endeavor, after a successful completion of their course of study.
Addressing graduands at the University’s 15th congregation, Guest Speaker for the occasion and Managing Director at Cascade Consult Limited who doubles as an alumni, Phyllis Kuenyehia, urged the graduands to build a career after school to make them more distinct among their peers.
She added that the onus lay with them to groom themselves well enough to the admiration of all potential job recruiters as they aspire to develop a career.
She said, “Most Human Resource Managers consider lots of basic factors before hiring the services of graduates. This includes personal hygiene hence the need to be mindful of your outlook.”
According to her, it was imperative for them to leave above reproach to be able to surmmount the seeming unending economic challenges that stirs Ghanaians in the face.
This, she explained, could be achieved through the building of internal motivation and commitment towards timing at work.
She stressed that the failure of one to cultivate the habit of pursuing excellence as an employee would prohibit one’s ability of becoming an excellent entrepreneur.
Mrs. Kuenyehia reckoned that the most important job satisfaction was how much the graduands’ work affects the well- being of others.
She, thus, challenged the graduands to make a difference in wherever they would find themselves in contributing their quota towards nation building.
The Image Strategist-Human Capital And Workforce Developmentalist further pointed out the essence of living a productive life. She again advised the graduands to challenged their status quo to read further to broaden their horizon even as they exit the lecture halls.
The Image Strategist admonished the graduands to look for avenues to give back essentially sowing into initiatives that builds lives, citing Central University as key in this regard.
According to her, graduands would always carry the brand of their alma mater to wherever life might locate them, hence, the need to help build the brand collectively.
This, she argued, would empower the next generation at Central University.
For his part, President of the University Professor Kwesi Yankah, told the graduands to be guided by the principles of the University as they exited the corridors of the campus.
According to him, Central University would, at all time, srive to produce the best tuition and nursing of character in line with christiandom.
The 15th Congregation came after the school was given a Presidential Charter as a fully-fledged University to run its own degrees and certificate of choice in tandem with the National Accreditation Board.
