Explore career opportunities at Chamber’s Careers Expo on Friday

DSC_4433The Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Careers, Education & Training Expo is expected to bring over 700 students to University College of the Cayman Islands’ Sir Vassel Johnson Hall on Friday, February 8. The Expo opens to the public at 10 a.m. Attendees will have an opportunity to speak with 34 businesses and organisations that are presenting scholarship, internship and career opportunities.

“The Careers Expo is one of our most important events, as it is the perfect place for our members to engage with high-school and college students and introduce them to the opportunities that are available after graduation,” said President Christopher Kirkconnell. “It is important to transition students from the classroom to the workplace, and the Careers Expo is an excellent way for young Caymanians to be fully aware of their future options.”

The Chamber of Commerce will be exhibiting and promoting the Professional Development and Training Centre and the Summer Work Experience and Mentoring Cayman programmes. Initiated last year, the work experience programme encourages member businesses to hire a high school student through the summer to introduce them to the world of work and give them a taste of what their future might hold.

Several businesses and organisations will promote scholarships, internships, apprenticeships and work placements while others will showcase career opportunities and provide information about the preferred course of study to enter an industry or technical field. Butterfield Bank, Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa, Health City Cayman Islands, Maples, Cayman Finance, Pinnacle Media, Health Services Authority, Mourant and the National Workforce Development Agency have reserved prominent positions in the hall.

Among the businesses exhibiting is the Water Authority, who will be promoting a $30K scholarship opportunity and summer internships. The Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa are also promoting internships within the tourism industry, while Cayman Enterprise City have job placement opportunities within the special economic zone. Dart is also one of the organisations showcasing their opportunities, and they will be telling students more about their university scholarship programme, as well as their current job vacancies.
