It is vital to always create something unique that will earn you a living than seeking for jobs from the government and private entity said Laurence

Especially you ladies, you are victims of what am talking about. Men will lie to you that they are giving you jobs, make use of you then later sack you he added

He noted that its a high time lady get to know their worth and identify their capabilities by learning hands on skills than being dependants.

During the Career Expo, Mentors, successful Entrepreneurs and Motivation speakers across the country share their experience, business ideas and answer questions from students.

Today the world has revolved, the internet has united us, we can do business through social media platforms. But to my dismay, most people use it for gossip Saleh said.

I operate a tour and travel company but I want to sincerely tell you that my success came through the use of internet where I connect with clients who have never been to Uganda he added.
