CAREER LINK UPS + Student Part-Time Employment & Internships

VIRTUAL CAREER LINK UPS 

These provide UWI graduates the opportunity to share their professional knowledge and expertise with students in a 60 to 90 minute virtual conversation.

It is an interactive session open to students across the 4 UWI campuses, with a more informal tone, which allows them to ask about the professions, career paths, challenges, trends and tips that alumni may wish to share. 

Usually 3 or 4 alumni from different professions are the discussants and students log in from their computers to take part in the conversation.

The sessions are done in conjunction with the Career Directors of the 4 UWI campuses who also offer guidance.

Much positive feedback has been received as students shared with their peers and lecturers their new or newly reinforced ideas about career choices and the key ingredient for success in the world of work.

Graduates may indicate their willingness to participate by emailing: iad@alumni.uwi.edu

SPECIAL THANKS: For the inaugural Virtual Career Link-Up - four alumni from Boston, New York and New Jersey, Howard Goode, Victor Brown, Delroy Taylor and Donovan Rodriques shared real world current career advice virtually across the region using the Open Campus system. Subject areas included business law, negotiation, biochemistry and biotechnology and hints about career choices and success in the world of work were also shared. The feedback was extremely positive.
