THE IIE’s Varsity College Pietermaritzburg recently hosted a Careers Fair on campus. Students had the opportunity to engage with prospective employers and submit their CVs for potential placement with the more than 10 companies, that covered a wide array of industries ranging from law to fashion, present. Said Lindy Findlay, Recruitment Specialist at Accountancy Placements: “It was an amazing experience for Accountancy Placements.

We met with numerous motivated students who will hopefully become candidates we may be able to place with suitable employers. This Careers Fair was great exposure for Accountancy Placements, and it was wonderful to meet with other businesses who share the same sentiments as us.”

Events like the Careers Fair offer students the opportunity the gauge what industry they may be suited for, as well as allow them the opportunity to obtain work experience before completing their degree, supplementing their CV before officially entering the working world. The Career Centre at The IIE’s Varsity College Pietermaritzburg strives to ensure that placement is done for as many students as possible.
