Nust Eenhana campus to host second career fair

The Namibia University of Science and Technology (Nust) satellite campus at Eenhana is set to host the second edition of its career fair on 4 August at the Billy William Mwaningange Rural Development Centre at Eembaxu village.

The fair will be hosted under the theme ‘Towards Human-Centred Innovation and Sustainability’.

This year, the Eenhana campus partnered with Metropolitan Namibia for the fair.

Lukas Shikulo, the head of the Eenhana campus, says the event targets primarily grade 10, 11 and 12 pupils, including out-of-school young people and everyone who wishes to pursue a career.

Additionally, the platform also affords businesses and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) an opportunity to showcase their products and services.

Shikulo says an open invitation has been sent to all tertiary institutions, both public and private, to attend the fair.

Various businesses and SMEs will also attend the event with their products and services.

“All schools are invited to attend the career fair. Out-of-school and career information seekers will also be welcomed. Mostly schools from the northern regions can attend.”

Shikulo says considering that many institutions of higher learning will be at the fair, there will be access to a lot of information in one place.

“We have organised and strategised to ensure all attendees have access to the exhibitors in an orderly manner,” he says.

According to the secretary of the campus, Saara Shilongo, the campus’ computer labs will be used for online application demonstrations.

“There will be entertainment by some top local artists to put some life into the event,” she says.

Although the event aims to attract all northern schools in the north, Shikulo, however, says some schools have transport challenges forcing them to send a sample of their best students, hoping they would share information with their fellow pupils upon their return.

“This is not always the case and leaves many pupils without relevant information. It would be best if all life skills teachers could attend the fair, obtain information, and be resourceful at their schools.

“All exhibitors are advised to give comprehensive information to all visiting schools,” he says.

Given that this is the second such career fair, Shikulo says there are more performers and more exhibitors to ensure a more memorable experience.
