On May 3, the Human Resources & Planning department held a send-forth luncheon for 17 National Youth Service Corps members who just finished national service at AUN.
The passing out batch of Corps members expressed their happiness with the University, and shared their experiences in the one-year mandatory service.
Awtten Deni Isoshie from Cross River State, who served in the Facilities Management department, said the mix of national and international employees at AUN was very enriching. He said he saw the hospitality of the work environment as beyond words.
Oluyede Olayinka Abiola from Ondo State, who served in the Finance Division, said that coming to Adamawa has given him many memories of living in Northern Nigeria, which will last him a whole lifetime.
Another Corps member, Jude Ndukwe Okpani, who also served in the Finance Division, revealed that he had the opportunity to practice those accounting ethics he had learned in the classroom. He hails from Ebonyi State.
Ms. Success Oseruke Orugbo from Delta State said her service year at AUN Academy (Elementary) was very enriching. She said the affection that the children showed her was so warm that she felt completely at home.
Sani Aji from Gombe State served at the Atiku Center for Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Development. He said he was touched by the service that the University renders to the community through the Center. Mr. Aji said greetings from the community children who he worked with in the Technology Enhanced Literacy for All (TELA) project, and those from the Feed-and-Read program, always warmed his heart.
Representing AVP Nourah Bamalli of HR & Planning, Mrs. Perpetual Okoji-Nweke, Senior HR Officer (Recruitment) told the outgoing Corps members that they should keep watch on the careers page of the University’s website for job openings. She added that during AUN staff recruitment, the one-year experience with the University usually gives candidates an edge over others.
All the outgoing Corps members were all presented with AUN souvenirs and their letters of clearance.
