World of work career fair gave students a chance to meet their potential employers at the Fred Crookes Sports Centre.

Bandile Majola of Ithala Bank said the company was grateful for the platform the career fair gave the bank, because they could clear misunderstandings about the company and let students know about the projects aimed at uplifting them.

“We have projects such as Imbokodo Iyazenzela, where we help black women. We also assist black budding business people to bring their innovative ideas to life,” said Majola.

There was a huge number of exhibitors from various fields, including Hulamin Operations bursary scheme. They said the fair makes the selection process easier, as students can register at the stand, and find more information on the different projects.

Other exhibitors included the SABC, Multichoice, Various SETA’s, TECSA, Sassa, eThekwini Municipality, Mahle, and Foschini group just to name a few.

Director of Co-Operative Education Department Shakeel Ori, which organised the fair said the event was significant as it created a space of communication between the employer and prospective employees.

“Students got to think about what path they want to take in their careers after they have completed their studies, as they now know what options they have,” said Ori.
