Thirty exhibitors are taking part in the 2020 Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) career fair, aimed at providing students and learners with information on career options.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the two-day event under the theme ‘Innovation for Economic Revitalisation’ here on Wednesday, NUST Deputy Vice-Chancellor Andrew Niikondo said the event provides an important platform for young people to explore the available options in the employment sector.
He noted that there is a trend amongst current cohorts of students to explore entrepreneurial careers and opportunities for work-integrated learning, hence the opportunity will allow students to gather information on companies’ entry-level positions and career paths.
“The career fair theme focuses on bringing together academia and industry prospective employers and employees for future employment opportunities and revival of our economy,” said Niikondo.
NUST has six faculties – Computing and Informatics; Engineering; Health and Applied Sciences; Human Sciences; Management Sciences and Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences.
