USP Entrepreneurial and Career Fair 2017 “Entrepreneurship and Employability”

The University of the South Pacific (USP) is organizing its Entrepreneurial and Career Fair from the 1st May -5th May, 2017 for all of its Laucala-based students. The program will include lunch-time seminars on career choices, starting your own business and more. 

The Careers Exposition with Employers will be held at the Student Car Park from 9am-4pm (Opposite Australia Pacific Lecture Theatre (formerly known as AusAid Lecture Theatre)), on Tuesday 2nd May to Wednesday 3rd May, 2017. There are 50 major employers invited for this significant event. Their roles are to:

  • To answer specific questions about jobs, internships and placements, careers and career pathways 
  • To distribute pamphlets and brochures to students 
  • To cover the two days of the Fair 
  • To present briefly (10 minutes) to students  on Job Application Procedures and Policies, Current Employment Opportunities and the attributes that organizations want our graduates to have if they are to succeed in their organization. 

There will also be a Job Seeking Skills Workshop for graduating students to make them more competitive in the employment market. 

 

As part of the USP Entrepreneurial and Career Fair 2017, an Entrepreneurial Workshop (Small Business Incubator Workshop) will also be conducted for students to create entrepreneurial awareness and make them more enterprising in creating employment.
