A number of business houses are expected to participate in the 2013 Pathway to Your Career Success Showcase which is being organised by the Barbados Community College (BCC).
The initiative, which will take place at the college on Wednesday, April 17, is aimed at enhancing students’ awareness of the opportunities for employment in the fields related to their majors and, by extension, to foster interest in areas of which they may not have been aware.
It will get under way at 9:00 a.m. and is expected to also secure and improve job prospects for the BCC’s current and prospective students.
The event will include booth displays and lectures focusing on assisting students in career development and strategy, introducing different sectors of natural science and technology, and providing the opportunity for business networking.
While it is expected that secondary and post secondary students will attend the event, it specifically targets students in the Science and Technology Divisions. These students will also be displaying their own exhibits of work for review by businesses, patrons and other entities.
There will be booth displays in the areas of Agriculture, Chemicals, Construction Materials,????????Engineering, Food & Beverage, Health Services, Information and Communications Technology and Personal and Household Care.??
According to the Division of Natural Sciences, the showcase is a response to students encountering challenges in matching their areas of study with their desired career. Such challenges have occurred in the business sector where there have been difficulties finding suitably qualified individuals with the relevant academic and practical skills.????
