The Senior Manager in charge of Commercial, Legal Affairs of MTN, Pala Asiedu Ofori has intimated the need for the youth to embrace the digital wave that is blowing across the globe.
According to her, the digital evolution brings in its wake millions of job opportunities.
These opportunities, however, she noted can only be taken by those who have prepared themselves for them.
Speaking to the media after educating the youth and students at the annual springboard 2019 road show at the Calvary Charismatic Center ( CCC) in Kumasi, Mrs. Ofori said knowledge in science and technology would serve the youth well in this modern age.
”You can take advantage of the evolution taking place in the digital world when you have prepared yourself in the knowledge of science and technology”, Mrs. Ofori intimated.
Mrs Ofori indicated that the answer to job openings is to be able to access information that will be needed daily by the public.
With the right skill coupled with the requisite technology one could employ himself as well as others, the MTN executive posited.
The digital evolution, she revealed will bring job losses.
She noted those who may not be able to cope with the speed at which employers would want their things may eventually lose their positions to digitally smart guys or robots.
Addressing students and the public later, Comfort Ocran, managing partner Springboard Roadshows urged the youth to take particular interests in the happenings in the world of technology.
Job openings, she noted are available in the field and noted those who are competent in technology are the ones who could assess same.
The world, she stated will, unfortunately not wait for anyone to catch up with the evolution ongoing.
This, she stated brings home the point for constant studies and research by students and the youth so they could catch up with the evolution associated with the rapidly changing world.
