Career Centre gets ready for Career Fair 2018 

The NWU Career Centre is getting ready for the 2018 Career Fair and Bean Counting Days on the North-West University’s (NWU’s) campus in Vanderbijlpark, taking place at the end of March.

These two days are a definite highlight on the calendar of the department Student Development and Counselling. During this time the Career Centre hosts the likes of KPMG, FNB and Standard Bank whose representatives will rub shoulders with students within the BCom fields of study – especially accounting – to help them make informed decisions about possible work opportunities after university.  

According to Ms Elette van den Bert, campus liaison officer at the Career Centre, the Career Fair and Bean Counting Days provides students with platforms to meet with potential employers within the BCom field. 

Students can attend the General Career Fair on 27 March 2018 and Bean Counting Day on 28 March 2018. Both events take place in the Honours Wing of the library (Building 13) from 09:00 to 13:00 daily.

More about the NWU Career Centre

The Career Centre closes gaps between students, employers, alumni and academics. Continuing engagement with stakeholders allows the university to contribute optimally to the development of well-rounded graduates. They must be  able to address the complex challenges of the world of work, but also play a meaningful role in addressing the broad social, economic, environmental and ethical challenges facing South African society today. 

The NWU invests substantially in ensuring that our curricula are relevant and assist in delivering quality graduates that are able to plough back skills into the economy. By means of various support structures the Career Centre helps students to develop an understanding of the world of work and the kind of attributes that employers are looking for in potential employees.
