The Career Starter Week, is an initiative of B360, which was first piloted at NUST in 2017. The workshops last for five days each and focus on a number of topics that ensure that when the students graduate from the Institution, they leave with enhanced skills. The CSW covers topics such as CV and Cover Letter Writing, Interview Training, Governance and Ethics, Project Management and Entrepreneurship.
Whilst the workshops are primarily facilitated by B360 experts, participants also have the opportunity to gain an insider’s perspective, from local industry professionals, of what employers expect from graduates. Approximately ten professionals from a range of local businesses and organisations, including FNB, Bank Windhoek, Cymot, Deloitte, CIC Namibia, AM Consulting, Old Mutual participated in the initiative.
2019 marks the tenth year of partnership between NUST and B360, with 14 experts assigned to NUST for the current semester. Three NUST students are currently in Switzerland where they are doing three-month internships at Credit Suisse, facilitated by the B360 Internship Programme.
