The Office of Career Services in a bid to decentralize its services to all UoN colleges and campuses on Thursday February 20, 2020 held a consultative meeting with the College Management Board of the College of Biological and Physical Sciences.
The aim of the meeting was to understand the career needs of the College and how the students’ life in campus can be improved to enable the Career Office tailor its services to the College needs. The CBPS Principal, Prof. Bernard Aduda welcomed the Career Office and commended the team for reaching out to the College to consult on how the two entities can work together.
Mr. Johnson Kinyua and Ms. Naomi Nyaboga from the Career Office attended the meeting and top on the agenda were discussions on the academic calendar for the college, MoUs signed with industry partners and international universities, college-based career fairs and exhibitions, college-based career talks and mentorship, skills development programs and student talent shows. The Career Office will now receive feedback from the college based on the key areas of discussion in the form of a survey.
Feedback from the College Management Board included the need to improve on the workspace and equipment at the College level, consider career opportunities for post-graduate students, secure job and internship opportunities from both the private and public sectors including research institutions and the County Governments, conduct soft skills trainings for the students, build the skills of students to make them competitive for the job market and obtain more internship opportunities for students going on long holiday.
The Career Office will strive to get a solution for the college needs in a bid to improve the study environment for students and secure job and internship opportunities for the students.
