Following the inaugural careers fair 6 and 7 September, the Careers Service at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre is making excellent progress securing work placements for more than 280 students.
The fair generated keen responses from participating companies. They used the occasion to network and identify students for interview. Feedback from companies include:
“We had a fantastic time talking to your students last week. It was very well organised and I think it was one of the better career fairs I have been to, as the students were engaged and prepared. We were comfortable and we met many eager students. I have listed the students we met that we felt would be the best fit for The Ritz-Carlton.”
“It was our pleasure to attend the event. Hopefully the students got some insight into the versatility of some careers and, through awareness of the variety of occupations at Cayman Turtle Farm.”
“We’re happy that we were able to take part and we look forward to the Work Experience Programme. We hope to be able to place a few students this year,” commented those at Cayman Maritime Authority. Rolston Anglin, minister of education, training and employment, supported the event by spending time speaking to students, staff and employers.
The vast majority of students have been placed on work experience with a range of companies.
