Thousands attend Career Fair

Eager to get career advice, hundreds of learners from within and beyond Windhoek attended this year’s NUST Career Fair. This is in addition to thousands of NUST students who participated in the event. More than 30 exhibitors from the University, industry and government participated in the event.

A career fair provides a unique opportunity to students and learners to engage the corporate world. It allows young minds to explore the possibilities in career paths and gives companies, government and Non-Governmental Organisations a glimpse into the expectations of professionals, thus allowing them to tailor their recruiting methods according to the needs of their potential future employees.

The NUST Vice-Chancellor, Dr Tjama Tjivikua said: “In an environment of tough economic times, it becomes more critical that the graduates that we are producing will be equipped to keep our country on the right path. I have no doubt that through this Fair, we will be helping you make astute decisions about your futures.”

Standard Bank is the main sponsor of the event. Linus Gwala, the Human Resources Director of Dundee Precious Metals, the latter also a sponsor, shared his personal experience and encouraged the learners to make the most of the event. “During our time, there were no career fairs and, therefore, very little or no information about careers existed. So I studied to become a teacher and only years later did I realise my passion for human resource management,” Gwala said.

Dadre Shikomba, a grade 12 learner from Rehoboth High School said that she found the career fair informative and it brought clarity to the requirements of the different fields of study she is interested in.
