Alumni receive “keys” to unlock career opportunities

We all know that a professional, well-written CV, a convincing job interview and regular networking with potential employers are keys that unlock career opportunities.

The Alumni Office, together with the Career Centre, presented these “keys” to NWU graduates at a Career Empowerment Day on 7 August 2019 on the campus in Vanderbijlpark.


During the event, graduate jobseekers attended a workshop where they boosted their employment prospects by practising their CV writing and interview skills. In addition, a career expo offered them the opportunity to network with a variety of business and industry representatives.


Alumni relations practitioner Zanele Ngobese says the university remains committed to the social, academic and professional wellness of our alumni, whom we regard as one of our most valuable brand ambassador groups.


She also highlights the value of the practical support that students and graduates receive from the Career Centre when preparing for the job market.


“The centre offers the university community all the resources they need to make a successful transition from their academic to their professional lives,” says Zanele.
