The 2024 Career Fair, which was recently held at the Bellville Campus, provided students with a valuable opportunity to network and engage with a diverse range of potential employers.

Hosted by the Centre for Community Engagement and Work-Integrated Learning, the event attracted 30 exhibitors from various sectors including health and finance.

The centre’s Director, Prof Lalini Reddy, said the objective was to expose students, especially second and third years, to potential employers and to prepare them for the future by familiarising them with current workplace expectations. The fair allowed students to ask relevant questions and gain insights directly from industry professionals.

Reddy said each exhibitor represented various potential opportunities for students from different fields of study, as one company may, for example, have IT, marketing, finance, human resource and other employees.

Students from various campuses attended the event, seizing the chance to gain valuable insights into the job market and better prepare for their future careers.
