Prospective employers have praised the annual University of the South Pacific Career and Entrepreneurial Fair held at Laucala Campus, saying they have been able to meet a cross-section of the talent available in Fiji.

Fiji Television Manager Human Resource and Training for Fiji Television Limited Ben Chand said their booth was visited by more than 100 students.

“The students were eager to know about how we operate and have showed interest working with the company,” he said.

“They asked questions and they were curious and this is the best time for them to decide on their career.

“Students need to be advised and counselled so that they make better choices for their future.”

Mr Chand said this year’s fair would benefit students who were not able to get sufficient information.

USP student Karishma Reddy said she was happy to attend the fair because it was convenient for her.

“It is helping me because I had to go the city for finding details. All what I needed is here and it is so convenient and students should make use of it,” she said.

The 19-year-old is currently doing Human Resource management and Public Administration at USP.

USP is urging students to take advantage of the booths operated by 60 participating employers to gain information about job vacancies and establish contacts with different companies present at the Career Fair.

Those there included Fiji Airways, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Fiji Electricity Authority and some government ministries.

The entrepreneurial fair 2015 ends tomorrow, May 15.
