Registrations Open: SAGEA Virtual Career Expo
The Office for Student Development are very pleased to announce that student registrations for the second national VIRTUAL GRAD XPO hosted by the South African Graduate Employers Association are now open!

UWC joins 16 institutions and more than 50 companies in this collaboration allowing students from across the country to engage with industry experts and find out where your talent could take you.

So whether you are a first-year or final year student we hope that the event will point you in the direction of vacation work, bursary opportunities, internships, trainee programmes and much more! UWC Careers Service will also have a booth and staff will be online to provide you with job search preparation tips!

We do understand that you may have a jam packed academic schedule, however you are encouraged to attend the event for at least an hour even if it is split during your free periods. You might be the future talent that companies are looking for!

Remember that if you are a final year/post graduate student you must not leave you job search until after your final exams, nor wait until after graduation. You should commence your job search now and apply soon. A majority of posts listed on the Job Board require you to apply this year! As long as you pass your final exams this year and can graduate – you are able to enter the world of work as a graduate in 2022.

Have you thought about how you will:
  • Decide which companies to target? 
  • Approach the recruiter at the Xpo?
  • Decide on questions to ask?
