College of Humanities 2014 Careers Day
Students had the opportunity to interact with various organisations exhibiting on the day, while Schools within the College were invited to participate.
‘This joint exhibition by Schools and organisations helped to bridge the gap between the academic sector (training) and the world of work as students were able to link courses and degrees offered within the College to specific careers,’ said Ms Angeline Stephens, College of Humanities Student Support Services Manager.
Stephens was pleased with the level of interest shown by both students and companies. The events provided opportunities for recruitment, career information and for networking and establishing links between companies and students.
First year Psychology student Ms Kirana Parusnath said: ‘The careers day exhibits were really great and informative. It allowed us to engage more with companies and organisations about possible career choices. Student Support Services really did a good job. I hope they have this event next year with even more companies.’
Another student Ms Zona Sofono also attended the event stating that it was a good initiative by the College to showcase the many career opportunities available for students.
