NSBM Green University Town held its Career Fair – 2019, on 23rd and 24th November at NSBM Green University Town, Homagama for the 3rd consecutive year. It was able to link over 40 leading companies with over 2,000 graduate and undergraduate students of NSBM Green University Town.
The Career Fair was organized to support graduates of the Faculty of Business, Faculty of Computing and Faculty of Engineering of NSBM, who are graduating in December 2019 and are, therefore, available for full-time employment. In addition, undergraduates of NSBM who are available for internships also attended the Career Fair.
This mutually beneficial initiative encompassed companies seeking candidates for entry-level employment and internships/training opportunities, conducted via walk-in interviews. Successful candidates received appointments for their final interviews at the Career Fair, itself.
Parallel to the career fair, Unilever Sri Lanka and Hayleys PLC conducted workshops in order to groom and gear students towards industry expectations.
Mr. Nalin Senadeera, DGM of Hayleys Fentons Limited who presented at a workshop said “we really appreciate the efforts made by NSBM Green University Town to groom undergraduates with the industry required skills and behaviors they need to prosper in the industry. We hope that the industry-university collaborations improve the quality of education in the universities.”
