College students’ showcase their skills to local employers
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Pembrokeshire College recently hosted a jobs fair to help students find out about part-time and seasonal work. Organised by the College’s very own Employment Bureau, local employers came along to advertise their vacancies.
The Employment Bureau is a student recruitment service which is part-funded by the Welsh Government to help young people find work. The team not only advertise job vacancies but also help College students with CV writing, interview skills, finding work experience placements and job searching.
The jobs fair gave College students the opportunity to access employer and careers advice on their lunch break. Local businesses including Brains, Bluestone, B&M, Tesco, Debenhams, National Park Authority, Allt Yr Afon (Wolfscastle Country Hotel), Twr Y Felin, Preseli Venture, Army Reserves and PAVS came along to advertise their vacancies and students were also able get expert advice from Careers Wales.
Pembrokeshire College’s Employability and Community Services Manager, Janet Davies said, “Even our full-time students can gain invaluable experience with just a few hours of work a week. The skills and independence that part-time work can give to young people can really boost their confidence and develop their skills. We’re pleased that so many local employers could come along to our jobs fair.”
Employment Bureau Consultant, Jen Dyer was pleased with the event, commenting, “We have great students and they don’t realise how employable they are! Meeting with employers face-to-face at our jobs fair made the whole process less intimidating for them.”
