By the Placement and Career Services Department

The Placement and Career Services Department kicked off its Annual Career Fair, which will run from July 5- 15. The first part of the Fair, which is already ongoing, features employment engagement talks and on-ground activations.

This year’s Career Fair is themed Reimagining the Future of Talent. In her comments to CTW, Ms. Cecilia Waihenya, Principal Officer, Placement and Career Services noted that the theme was designed to encourage students envision their careers with a new perspective.

“The labor market has changed significantly over the past decade, but even more, since early 2020 when the pandemic became global. New ways of working have become the norm across sectors; from remote working to blended learning and bespoke service provision. This year, as we continue hoping for improved overall national and global health, we want to spur our students and alumni to think globally, to reject all limitations and to pursue their individual missions unapologetically by changing their worldview,” she said.

Below is a brief snapshot of how the two weeks will look like:

  • Tuesday, July 5 – Friday, July 8
