LUKMEF’s PROFESSIONAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM ORIENTATION: Supporting the development of Human Capital for Self Actualisation and Professional development for the Job Market 

In today’s professional world, it takes more than a degree or a diploma and a winning smile to convince employers to hire you. Internships are gateways to show your commitment to professionalism, self-improvement, and excellence. LUKMEF in its mandate of empowering communities and individuals to take leadership of their development has instituted the Professional Internship Program now at its 8th Batch across her offices (Buea, Bamenda, Kumba and Douala). The current batch enrolled a total number of 76 graduates across her offices for the January-July 2023 session.

With the objective of ensuring all admitted interns have an understanding of LUKMEF, its operations and the professional internship program, its inter-linkages to the job market and the established sectors’ and departments’ mandates, the Buea, Bamenda and Douala Offices convened an Orientation session on Friday 13th, Tuesday 17th of January, 2023 at the respective LUKMEF offices.

The session in Buea brought in all the newly admitted interns of the 8th batch, the Sector/Departmental leads, current batch of Professional Interns, LUKMEF coordination and the Internship Program Coordinator.

In the journey of career development he stressed ” in the midst of challenges, we don’t complaint, rather we find solutions…” He added that “complaining blocks our intellect, most young people see everything as problem and not as opportunities.” He encouraged them to see problems as opportunities to develop better ideas for growth and to engage in asking questions beyond the problems. He called on them to admit as their ultimate focus that “its possible and to admit that they are up to to the tasks at all times.”

With the increase need for skills acquisition accorded by graduates, LUKMEF is working on to establish collaborations with other local organizations, increase higher institution collaboration, and increase education and speaker sessions with students within Higher institutions to raise awareness on post graduation challenges and realities, self actualization and career orientation.
The need to strengthen other Local organizations towards setting systems and improving their capacities on internship management to take up this load of high need for internships and practical skills acquisition so as to increase youths participation within the Civic space and reduce out migration and reduce unemployment within the country.
