West Africa Branch Open Day
Posted on Monday, February 26, 2018
This year the West Africa Branch has organized their Open Day in
conjunction with the Maritime Career and Internship Fair held in
Tema in February 2018.
The Branch partnered with Masser Afrique to organize a maritime
career and internship fair under the theme "Preparing Professionals
to Power Global Growth" at the Regional Maritime University. This
was done in collaboration with the Students Representative Council
of the University.
The fair sought to equip students with skills to be globally
competitive and also encourage them to be entrepreneurial.
The partnership was fruitful on all fronts in terms of the
quality of personnel that represented and the mass representation
of the student body. Each session was engaging enough and the
speakers directly addressed issues relating to the theme.
The fair was graced by the presence of the Director of Research
of the Ministry of Transport who was the special guest of honor.
He spoke at length on the practical plans of the Ministry to
enhance job opportunities for students of the University.
The Institute was represented on the day by Mr. Nathaniel Nti
and Mrs. Gertrude Ohene-Asienim FICS who made a detailed
presentation on the activities of the Institute, the qualifications
that the Institute has on offer. During the presentation it was
highlighted to students attending how to take advantage of the many
opportunities provided by the Institute.
Among the notable speakers include Mr. Oludotun Osiyemi of
Doterry's Consulting who gave the students and other participants a
practical insight on Entrepreneurship and Networking Skills in the
21st Century and a representative from Zormelo and
Associates, an HR recruitment firm who spoke on Building a Career
and How to write a winning CV/Resume.
