Fair opens real world of work to learners

The Poly’s 20th annual Career Fair, held to attract Poly students and also high school learners from across the country to showcase what the Institution has on offer and to connect them with a range of Namibian employers, was a huge success.

This year the Fair included exhibitions by a number of local and international businesses and organisations, Government departments and the Poly’s Schools and Centres of Excellence. The main focus of the event was “Career Mapping” which is in line with the Poly’s theme for the 2015 academic year, “Excellence in the 21st Century.”

During the opening of the Fair, Poly Rector, Prof Tjama Tjivikua, said the event is a vital moment in the lives of many young people and would serve as an eye opener to the real world of work, as well as the commencement of a serious job search.

“We need to guide students to careers that will open opportunities for employment and even at the early stages, learners have to be exposed to appropriate information to help them make decisions on future careers,” Tjivikua said.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Fund, Rosalia Martins- Hausiku, said the initiative provides a platform where employers, recruiting agencies and information and job seekers meet to discuss issues relating to career opportunities and employment.

“For learners, this is an opportunity to learn more about careers that are available in industry and therefore, as you go through the various exhibitor stands, do not shy away from asking questions about career opportunities that are available at these different institutions,” Martins-Hausiku said.
