Driven by the desire to improve their lives and grow as holistic individuals, Zetech University students hosted Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in an engaging and insightful session at the varsity main campus along Thika Road.

The session involved speakers from ACCA who challenged the trainees to invest in themselves and use their time wisely, in order to stand out in the job market.

Speaking to the students, ACCA Education Development Manager and Life Coach Steve Obuogo  emphasised to them that hard work pays and urged them to steer away from wasting time watching TV shows and movies and to instead find rewarding ways to use their time,

“Soon, you will be looking for a job so as to earn some money and kick start your career life; learn what is expected of you as you pursue your career of choice and this will enable you to impress employers and land a good job,” Steve said, adding that developing oneself is critical for any student.

The trainees further discovered tips on impressing potential employers and the value of investing in professional courses to boost their University degree or diploma. The attentive students used the opportunity to find out what is expected of them and to learn time management skills that can enable them to improve their lives.

“It was an insightful session and we learnt a lot,” said David Manza, A student official at the university, adding, “It was important for us to provide the students with an opportunity to engage with young and successful people who can mentor and encourage them to do their best.”

Present at the forum, Moses Maina, Executive Director, Communication, Corporate and Student Affairs at Zetech and an ACCA graduate, lauded the Financial Training firm for taking time to motivate the students in the right direction, highlighting the benefits of undertaking an ACCA course,

“It is critical for you to invest in knowledge for yourself so that you can be the best in your field. I applaud ACCA for taking time to talk to our students and urge our trainees to always remember that no one can take your knowledge away from you.” Moses said.

Indeed, the University remains committed to providing training opportunities for students to enable them to grow in all aspects of their lives.
