St. Mary’s University in collaboration with the Organization for Women in Self-Employment (WISE) gave a four-day training to its 4th-year year prospective graduates. The training was coordinated by the Carrier and Internship Unit of the University as part of the various training the Unit arranges to improve the employability of its graduates.
To that effect, the training was offered by WISE professionals who have had relevant experience in the area. The training which lasted from March 14 to 17, 2023 was attended by 40 prospective graduates (29 females and 11 males) who have been actively participating in the different clubs established in the University.
The first two days of the training focused on General Employment Readiness. The main objective of this session was to impart to prospective graduates how they can access the job market and be competitive. The students have been trained on how they can develop a Curriculum Vitae, conduct/engage in successful interviews, and develop good work ethics. In the remaining days, prospective graduates have been enlightened about Gender Empowerment and Reproductive Health.
By and large, the participants were happy with the opportunity they had and remarked that the training was relevant to their everyday life. On the other hand, the trainers also appreciated the students on their active engagement and interactive participation they have shown individually and in groups.
