To help curb graduate unemployment and equip students with the necessary skills that will make them employable after school, GTUC has organized the annual Career Info shop Fair today, 21 March, 2019.

The Fair  under the theme “Securing a future in a technology-driven economy” was to inform students about career opportunities in the job market as well as create a platform for networking with industry leaders to gain practical insight into what they have studied in the classroom.

Speaking at the event Mr. Emmanuel Payne, a level 400 Engineering student, expressed his excitement and appreciation at the opportunity created for them.

He said that most of his colleagues have seized the opportunity to learn more about the various work industries and how they relate to their respective areas of studies.

The Ag President (GTUC), Professor Emmanuel Ohene Afoakwa cut the tape to launch this year’s Career Info Shop, he congratulated the Office of Student Affairs for the continued effort in ensuring the event is carried out annually. Dr. Adjin also encouraged the students to take advantage of the platform created and learn more about the job opportunities related to their respective areas of study.

While some students visited the various organizations set up at the GTUC forecourt (Main Campus), others interacted with prospective employers at the GTUC Career Info Shop. They also engaged in some activities such as seminars, workshops, CV clinics and counseling sessions facilitated by professionals from industry.

Organizations who exhibited at the event included; Vodafone, MTN, Brands Africa Ghana, Fidelity Bank, Ghana Armed Forces, etc. Some GTUC Alumni also attended the event to share their experiences with the students.

Also in attendance were, the Registrar, Dr. Mrs. Juliana Owusu Ansah, Head/Students Affairs, Ms.Evelyn Asiedu, staff and faculty members, students and invited partners.

The GCIS 2018 provided GTUC students with relevant information to educate them on career options and choices.

Meanwhile the Acting President of GTUC, Professor Emmanuel Ohene Afoakwa, has called on the government to expedite action on the passage of the GTUC Bill into law to make the institution a fully fledged public university.

He said the timely passage of the bill would not only make the GTUC more competitive internationally but also better position it to be a leading technology-based institution that would produce technocrats to respond appropriately to the country's developmental challenges. We are pleading with the government to speed up the process, so that we can have the bill passed into an act this year to enable us to award our own degrees and broaden our base towards the technical human resource needs of the country.

The Chief Executive Officer for L’AINE Services Ltd Dr Ellen M.Hagan also asked for policies in our education to scientists in the country.
