NUPW hosts career showcase
THERE ARE several career opportunities within the public sector; it is just a matter of bringing them to the fore.
With this in mind, the National Union of Public Workers held its inaugural career showcase at its Dalkeith, St Michael, headquarters today.
Public relations officer for the union’s 70th anniversary celebrations, Joy-Ann Inniss, said the showcase formed part of the celebrations as well as of their recognition of Public Service Week.
“We have invited ten schools in an effort to make students aware of the union and the public service in general because usually when there are open/career days the public sector is not up front and people tend to gravitate to the private sector offerings,” she said.
The exhibitors included the Barbados Defence Force, the National Disabilities Unit, the Environmental Protection Department and the Barbados Archives among others. (CA)
