The Fiji National University is proud to announce its participation as one of the exhibitors at next week’s 2024 Western Division Mini Job Fair.

The much-anticipated job fair is hosted by the National Employment Centre – Fiji.

The significant event aims to connect job seekers with potential employers in the Western Division, presenting them with the opportunity to explore and secure employment.

Additionally, the job fair will serve as a platform for around 20 employers to showcase available job openings and conduct on-site interviews with job seekers.

FNU’s Acting Manager Outreach attached to the Division of Marketing and Communications, Vijayta Sharma, said FNU’s participation in this event suggested that the University was actively engaging with local employment initiatives.

“It shows our commitment and involvement in the local community and our efforts to contribute to economic development by bridging the gap between education and employment,” Sharma highlighted.

“Though the event is primarily aimed at connecting job seekers to potential employers, FNU’s participation will provide job seekers with valuable opportunities to upskill and reskill themselves.”

She encourages the residents of Nadi and the rest of the Western Division to take advantage of the platform.

“There are many of us who are looking for courses and programmes that we can complete in a short or minimum duration so we can get into the job market quickly,” she said.

“All this information will be made available to you at our booth. In addition, for those who are unemployed, you can also learn more about our upskilling and reskilling programmes.”

“Application forms will also be available at the booth, and people can apply for our Semester 2 programmes.”

Sharma added that interested individuals or families visiting the FNU booth can expect one-to-one consultations, career counselling, and academic advice from FNU’s college representatives on site.

“Participants will also get to know about the various Higher Education (HE) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) courses available at the University. Our National Training and Productivity Centre (NTPC) team will also be present to provide information on short courses, trade tests, and apprenticeship programmes,” she added.

The job fair is scheduled to take place at Nadi’s Koroivolu Park on Thursday, 4 July and Friday, 5 July.
