The excitement is palpable at Zetech University ahead of the anticipated Career Fair scheduled for the 22nd-24th of March. In collaboration with Daily Nation’s My Network pullout targeting the youth in the county, the fair comes at a time when young people are seeking information to enable them to make the right decision with regard to higher education.
This year’s edition promises to be memorable with the partners bringing in key guests to cover topics around business, innovation and media as well as hosting corporates who can take time with attendees and share key insights on joining employment or stating a business.
The three day event will also play host to celebrated Ntv anchors Gladys Gachanja and Dann Mwangi who will compliment the academic environment by engaging guests on media, communications and branding. Moreover, three HR Panelists, Jane Muiruri, Mwikali and Fred Gituku who have editorial sections in the My Network pullout will engage the crowd on how to transition when joining the job market and how to survive.
Commenting on the upcoming event, the varsity VC Prof. Edwin Wamukoya emphasised the need to mentor young people and ease their transition to higher education so that they can comprehend what is expected of them,
“It is critical that institutions gather potential and current students in such a forum to educate them on what is expected of them and enlighten those already in university on how to package themselves for a competitive world.” said Prof. Wamukoya.
The Fair is also set to host animation expert Michael Muthiga, CEO, Fatboy Animations as well as entertainment gurus King Kaka and Avril, who are eager to share on the place of business in entertainment and the powerful combination of talent development and education.
Zetech media Student John Teketi, eager to interact with the guests, shares that he is excited at the opportunity to learn from those who are already making it and looks forward to talks around the event theme which is Building Technopeneural skills for innovation and Development.
Indeed the event promises to meet expectation, with the varsity seeking to engage thousands of participants on available courses and scholarship opportunities to those who attend the fair.
