To students, “FundoLinker's mantra is ‘skills produce, skills buy’. Skills produce quality products or services for companies. Skills make people employed ultimately making them or their dependents able to buy products or services of companies. Skills fix every economic challenge a nation or company can face. Skills attract other skills. Skills attract investment. Skills grow and develop nations. As such skill builders must strive to collectively build quality skills not mere certificates,”
To Companies, Students want to know about your company. Students want to know about your occupations and their departments. Students want career guidance and professional counseling from your company. Students want to know what you are doing for them and the education community at large. Students want to know about internship, apprentice and graduate trainee positions you may have for them. Knowing that they are your future employees, future customers, future members, and future fellow entrepreneurs, students would like to see you playing an integral part with others in building them. FundoLinker gives your company an easy way to do all this, and link your company to primary and secondary schools, universities, colleges, polytechnics, industry veterans, crowd donors and other companies so you arrest skills building challenges together,”
