Going through EE1 was more than a worthwhile experience for me. Before then I had only a faint idea of who I really was and what the next step was after school. But EE came to my rescue at the nick of time. I was taught salient life lessons that I'll never forget. My self-perception improved and I now have a broader sense of direction. It also afforded me the opportunity to build lasting friendships; we all know relationships are an essence of life, right?
So, you're confused about who you are and how you're perceived by the environment/society. You don't know which way to go after school? Then hurry and sign up for EE2, because just as the name connotes, you're sure to get the edge in the “outside world”! And just like me, you won't be stranded.
Hey, and who says your future business partner isn't going to be sitting right next to you @ EE2?

The start of your lessons should really be "Je veux travaiille ici". That was enough french to win my HR manager's heart when I learnt she could speak french. I didn't need an interpreter to understand her reply. I got my first job before the end of the interview! Thanks to the French I learnt at EE1.
EE provided the relevant connection between school and the work world. The resource persons and the Foreign Language teachers were great; the organisers over-delivered; the class size and faculty-student relationship produced optimal results; the network you get to build is solid...
In summary, EE...tres tres tres bon!

I met Dr. Emmanuel Okeleji and he told me about Employment Edge 1. I wanted to know what the program will be like, of course, I’ll give it a shot for the name’s sake.
Yes, it gave me the opportunity to travel out of Nigeria to learn French, and I got the edge in the company where I now work because I speak basic French.
Employment Edge also gave me the opportunity to know what is required in the “Corporate Environment”: the ethics, etiquette, politics etc. All of these, I must say are never classroom taught.
Employment Edge brought the big shots in the Corporate environment to let us know how it works in the real world……..
Be an EDGER, Be CURRENT, make sure you’re in Employment Edge 2. I recommend it 99%. I reserve the 1% for me………

I am presently serving at Skyebank in Abeokuta. My experience at EE was awesome as it had a tremendous impact on my life in all facets, via the two packages it offerred "Employment Etiquette" and "Language Tutelage". "Employment Etiquette" gave me a different perspective of this highly competitive labour market bringing to my awareness that getting a good job is a great job itself and on this same platform afforded the opportunity to network with several important personalities thereby increasing my net-worth.
"Language Tutelage" helped me overcome the language barrier when I travelled to Cotonou some months back.
EE was a huge success and I'm proud to have been a part of it because it made me a better person. Que Dieu "Employment Edge" Benisse. Merci Beaucoup.

My experience at EE can be summarized in one word: AWESOME! I had the best language tutors and wonderful colleagues who made the learning process easy and fun! The EE co-ordinators were also always around to attend to every student's needs and showed genuine interest in making us better people. It was like being part of one big family!
When I registered for EE, I honestly didn't imagine I'd learn so much. The career sessions were expository and I was privileged to have my first taste of the after-school experience.
Those six weeks were remarkable and our trip to Cotonou made it a memorable experience. EE was simply 'spectaculaire'!
I sincerely want 2 give a big thumbs up 2 d organisers of ds epoch making program dat has definitely come 2 stay. For me d thot of EEdge alone comes wit a lot of nostalgic feelings cos d impact ws awesome.i wil always cherish not only d main thrust or brain behind d prog, bt also d commitment of our facilitators 2 achieving ds. Believe me i could go on n on 'bout EEdge but let me simply put it ds way, IT WAS DA BOMB!!! and am glad 2 b its first fruit.
