QSS Uganda, together with Flip Africa graced the ‘MUBS Connect’ event at Makerere University Business School (MUBS) to interact with students and job seekers on their professional aspirations. This gathering was more than just a meet-and-greet; it was a golden opportunity for those on the cusp of their careers to gain insights and inspiration for their future.

The Aim: Bridging the Gap

The primary goal was to bridge the gap between potential employers and job seekers. Finding the right job or employee can be like searching for a needle in a haystack in today’s increasingly competitive work environment. This event aimed to demystify and simplify that process, offering students and job seekers a platform to connect directly with the people who interact with industry professionals daily.


The Experience: A Day of Learning and Networking

The atmosphere at MUBS was electric with enthusiasm and curiosity. Our booth was a hub of activity, where representatives shared valuable tips on successful job searching and career advancement. Attendees had the chance to engage in one-on-one conversations with professionals, gaining first-hand insights into the working world.

This interactive experience was not just about handing out job listings; it was an educational journey. From resume-building to interview techniques, the team equipped attendees with the tools and knowledge crucial for standing out in the competitive job market.


The Benefits: Empowering Job Seekers

The benefits of such engagements are manifold, especially for job seekers. Firstly, it demystifies the job search process. Getting direct advice from those already in the industry can clarify misconceptions and provide a clearer path to employment.

Secondly, it’s about networking. Events like MUBS Connect provide a rare opportunity to make connections that could lead to future job opportunities. It’s often said, “It’s not just what you know, but who you know,” and this event embodied that adage.

Lastly, it boosts confidence. Interacting with potential employers and learning about the industry helps job seekers build the confidence needed to pursue their career goals. It’s about understanding that behind every company are people just like them, looking for talent and dedication.


By providing guidance, inspiration, and networking opportunities, the talent and recruitment teams have taken a significant step in supporting the career aspirations of many young professionals. For those who attended, it was not just a day at a university event; it was a stepping stone towards a brighter career future.
