The Namibia National Students’ Organisation has hailed the Namibia Career Expo agency’s 10th anniversary describing it as a consistent and resourceful development partner in the education sector.
Speaking at the occasion, Nanso president, Ester Simon said the exposition has been a critical window of opportunity for sharing relevant information as well as career guidance.
She said it has been, “helping learners and students conduct research, enlightening students about employment opportunities, bursary offers, priority and diverse careers in different and important fields and areas of further study”.
“This initiative has been a rare opportunity for students and graduates as job seekers, to meet potential employers and working professionals for advice, inspiration and motivation.”
“And for 10 years the Namibian Career Expo, has been a central theatre of information, education and empowerment, with consistent success in facilitating information and career awareness platforms, introducing learners and students to new possibilities and connecting businesses, organizations and industrialists to communities, families and future leaders,” she added.
She has also encouraged students to think beyond this year’s event “by getting more volunteers on board.”
Simon also called on stakeholders to mobilise resources to ensure the decentralisation of the event.
“We need to lead an inclusive and proactive campaign that will result and ensure opportunities trickle down to all 14 regions, from Kunene region to !Karas region, from Erongo region to Zambezi region and from Omaheke to Ohangwena region,” she said.
