FNU Students Engage Potential Employers At Careers Fair

A two-day careers fair has enabled students of the Fiji National University (FNU) to meet and receive advice from potential employers.

The fair was held at the FNU’s Nasinu Campus and involved 37 potential em­ployers.

FNU’s assistant registrar, Karishma Deo, said the event provided a platform for information sharing between organisations and job seekers.

Ms Deo said the careers fair allowed networking be­tween students and employ­ers and opened opportuni­ties for mutual benefit.

“Our aim was to provide an opportunity to students to independently manage their own career develop­ment through interactions with employers and max­imising positive graduate outcomes,” she said.

A representative from the Ministry of Economy, Snay Kumar, said students were eager to learn career oppor­tunities available within the ministry based on the programmes they were studying.

“I attended to a lot of stu­dents who inquired about the work of the Ministry of Economy, what qualifica­tions were needed for differ­ent positions that existed within the ministry,” she said.

Staff from the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts assisted FNU students to compile their Curricu­lum Vitae (CV).

The team also advised stu­dents on how to prepare for job interviews.

The careers fair is an an­nual event organised by the Office of the Registrar and provides an opportunity for students to meet potential employer representatives in an informal setting.
