Three institutions to jointly host NUST graduates for career development workshops

Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) and B360 Education Partnerships with the support of Bank Windhoek will host graduates for two, one week Career Development Workshops, scheduled to take place from 8 to 19 July in Windhoek.

The workshops will be facilitated by Switzerland-based B360 Education Partnerships, a non-governmental organisation comprising a pool of professionals in numerous disciplines such as Business Management, Civil Engineering, Communication, Economics, Finance and Accounting, Human Resources, Journalism, Marketing, Mechanical Engineering, SME Development and other career fields.

Aimed at coaching graduates on how to prepare themselves for possible employment in a highly competitive job environment, the workshops will expose the students to the skills and knowledge related to preparing of interviews and Curriculum Vitae, motivational letter writing, organisational structure introduction, ethics and governance in addition to business skills, amongst others.

“The graduates we hosted earlier this year, welcomed the initiative as they received training on professional job interview preparedness, convincing application documentation, basic understanding of business functions, project planning and management skills. We will share similar knowledge with the expected attendees. As a responsible corporate citizen, this is Bank Windhoek’s commitment of adding value in the communities in which we operate, especially the Namibian youth,” said Bank Windhoek’s Human Resources Business Partner Manager, Retuura Ballotti.

The Swiss experts, who have proven experience in lecturing and training at an international level, also share their subject-matter and business-based knowledge and expertise with public and private sector organisations in Southern Africa and Europe. They will expose the graduates to tailor-made assignments in the form of roundtables and workshops.
