Having attained our vision we seek to be able to:

  • Solidify existing graduate and student recruitment partnerships with commerce, industry and other employer organizations to create valuable and sustainable employment opportunities for our students;
  • Actively support personal and academic development programmes run by the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Media (CTLM) and the Student Counselling, Career and Development Centre (SCCDC) for the benefit of our students;
  • Enhance the potential for student employment through vocational socialization and career development in jobs commensurate with their aspirations;
  • Establish solid partnerships with faculties, academic departments, student support services and student formations to facilitate the profiling of the unit and to solicit support and participation by the students in the employment programmes and services run by the unit;
  • Continue to host and improve on the annual Graduate and Law Recruitment Programmes, Careers Fair, Accounting & Law Day, Computing Sciences and IT Careers Fair as well as expand the activities of the unit for the benefit of our students.
