Why HM2R
In recent times, both local and international data speak to the fact that today’s college graduates lack professional competencies and job skills. In Ghana, lack of experience is often cited as a prime reason for the very high graduate unemployment rates. In the United States of America, results of a recent survey commissioned by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools showed that many hiring decision-makers believe that the post-secondary education system could do a better job in preparing students for the workplace. Colleges have the onus to better prepare students for the transition from school to work, but there are challenges. To contribute to preparing individuals, HM2R’s capacity-building and mentoring program will promote postgraduate internships and real work experiences for recent local graduates, local students, and international students seeking field experience.
