Science and Technology University’s graduates need one more course – how to land a job
A workshop designed to help graduates from the Namibia University of Science and Technology find a job, was conducted this week to help jobseekers market themselves more effectively to prospective employers.
The workshop known as the Career Starter Week has been conducted annually since 2017. It employs the services of Swiss professionals, augmented by the university’s own experts. It is supported financially by the FirstRand Namibia Foundation Trust.
The university’s International Relations Officer, Nico Smit, said that the combination of international know-how and context specific professional knowledge and experience creates an excellent learning experience for the students who attend the series of career guidance lectures. He added that the support from the foundation is essential to ensure the workshop’s success, measured by the number of students who get a headstart when hunting for a position.
