Karibib Private School has decided to ease the stress students feel when choosing a career path.

Charlize Izaaks, grade 10 learner; Now I really want to be a paramedic.

Karibib Private School hosted its first ever Career Fair on 10 July, with the aim of assisting learners in their search for a suitable career path to pursue.

Various professionals - like artists, bankers, accountants, nurses and police officers - were in attendance and ready to answer questions regarding their professions.

One career option that sparked interest was emergency medical services. Students were crowded around the paramedic, who was doing live demonstrations of basic emergency techniques.

Another favourite was the radio-grapher, who spoke about the ins and outs of the job, and the joys to be found in radiography. “It was really insightful,” commented Susanna Gawachas.

Representatives of the Petroleum Training and Education Fund (Petrofund) also attended, and declared their continued support for students who choose to pursue petroleum exploration and production.

Deloitte also pledged its support for the youth, and discussed some of the options it offers young, hopeful accountants and auditors.

One of these is the Deloitte Young Executives programme, aimed at senior secondary students. The programme offers students a two-day experience with which grade 11 and 12 students will receive insight into the day-to-day life of chartered accountants.

Leonel dos Santos and Ujanja Uanguta were convinced of their calling as chartered accountants after a chat with Deloitte employees.

“When choosing a career path, it's not always an obvious choice, but events like these make the decision making process easier for the learners,” said Mr Vincent Hockey, headmaster of Karibib Private School.

He said they will make the event a new tradition of the school.
