Every July, the Waterford Kamhlaba invites high school students around the country to meet and mingle with both universities and companies to get career and tertiary education information. The Annual Careers Fair is a student-led Career Support Initiative (CSI) event and it is a community service project, organized by IB2 students at Waterford. Given the extraordinary situation facing the country with COVID-19, holding a career fair in 2020 is more important than ever, to give students an opportunity to engage on their career plans and ask questions to help them plan for an uncertain future. Waterford Kamhlaba were determined to continue to offer this service to high school students this year and the student team has worked hard from their homes all over the continent to put the programme together remotely. Local Waterford alumni from Eswatini have also contributed to this initiative.
This year, the fair will be held online on Wednesday, 29 July 2020. Universities, companies and individuals who would like to attend and submit video presentations may email John Storer at firstname.lastname@example.org. These presentations will be uploaded on www.waterford.sz where students and members of the public can view them. The Knowledge Institute has participated in this fair for the last five years, and this year we will be hosting group presentations and discussions on the following fields of study: medicine, humanities, engineering, scientific careers, as well as a general applying to university discussion.
