Ms. Walker said, “During the next week, students will be given the opportunity to work with both locally and globally based Saltus alumni and other professionals in a range of positions and organisations.

“We are conducting a hybrid series of in school and online sessions designed to expose our senior students to careers in law enforcement, technology, cyber security sales, writing, acting, digital transformation, politics, real estate, medicine, economics and human resources.”

The spokesperson said, “In addition to their initial session on resume writing, Saltus students will also benefit from the experience of local Human Resources professionals Kijuan Wilkinson, Human Resources at BF&M and Kelly Francis, Founder and President of Performance Solutions Ltd.

“They will provide information on practical tips for job hunting and office etiquette.

“Virtual elements of the week’s activities will cover a range of topics which include skills building, developing engaging application letters, interview skills and completing in-depth job research. To put all of what they have learned throughout the week into practice, students will have individual mock interviews on Friday which will cover questions on their resume, cover letter and job application.

“The interview panel will provide the students with advice and feedback on their interviews.

“Saltus is thankful for the Saltus alum and other professionals for helping the SGY 1 students through Work Experience Week. The lessons and advice that the students will learn through this experience will help them prepare to meet the world.”
