The world of work has changed today, especially in the wake of COVID – 19 pandemic. The online space is no longer a space for social conversations and interactions but for work. It has become a tool and a resource to share information, to engage in conversations and to get things done. DeKUT Office of Career Services intends to take advantage of this space to tap into the pool of partners and industry players and collaborate to host Webinars on various topics and aspects towards skills, professional and right attitude development as well as empowerment of her students. These webinars will also serve as opportunities to network with staff, alumni and industry players.
