World of Work 2012, Interview Preparation, The UWI, St. Augustine

{gallery}http://www.flickr.com/photos/theuwi/sets/72157629379017972/{/gallery} The University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine Campus, hosted its annual World of Work (WOW) programme from February 9th to March 23rd, 2012, at the UWI Sport and Physical Education Centre (SPEC).

The UWI partnered with Republic Bank Ltd once again to host WOW which, since its inception over ten years ago, has provided an increasing number of UWI students with the right tools for long-term success in the globalised work environment.

Republic Bank recognises the inexorable drive in our nation’s youth to push boundaries and in the process, redefine them, and understands that they need assistance if their maturation process is to be holistic. The Bank believes in WOW’s value in developing the career potential of students who will be shortly graduating.

Each component of the WOW 2012 programme is specifically intended to develop a targeted skill set. The Interview Preparation Workshop teaches participants interview skills necessary to impress prospective employers; the WOW Seminar provides advice from leading professionals on Financial Planning, Dressing for Success and Becoming an Entrepreneur; the Mock Interview session allows each student to practice interview skills with real business professionals and gain valuable feedback; the Networking Workshop, which made its debut last year, introduces students to socializing for business success; and the Recruitment Fair showcases companies and organisations from a variety of fields who will recruit students for either vacation or graduate employment. The Recruitment Fair took place during the final two days of WOW 2012, with one day designated to all returning students and the other, restricted to final-year, graduating students.
