The 4th annual SBCS Employment and Career Fair was held on Friday, August 10, 2018. Hosted by our Student Services department at the Champs Fleurs campus, and set within the theme, “The SBCS Advantage: Get the Edge“, the Fair was another demonstration of our continued efforts to provide our learners and alumni with meaningful experiences that will enhance their career readiness. Twenty-two employers participated, sharing information about employment and career prospects, and over 200 students from across SBCS’ undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and certificate programmes attended, making valuable connections and learning about immediate and future job openings.
It took the participation and coordination of the entire SBCS community to provide this opportunity; a special thanks to all employers, students, and visitors who attended the Fair to make it the success that it was! Executive Director, Dr Robin Maraj summed it up best, “Superb organization and teamwork followed by passionate execution.”
Truly, we appreciate each of the employers, exhibitors and vendors for taking time out of their busy schedules to share career information (and goodies!) with our students and alumni:
