THE inaugural Careers Market has set a target for young students to open their eyes to future job possibilities in the country.

A young female student from Naha Community High School who took part in the event told Solomon Womens that Careers Market program has given her the opportunity to decide what she want to be when she grows up.

“The program has given me a opportunity to get a first-hand look at some possible career choices,” Rose Mark said.

Over five hundred students took part in a career education program that involved an exhibition of businesses and organisations that aim to help students develop their career goals.

Rose said she is glad to attend the program because it has given her more in-depth knowledge and understanding about how to choose her future career.

“Coming to this program is a great privilege for me as a form six student especially to gain knowledge on the different companies, ministries and local businesses that have displayed their products and services here.

“From the visit I wanted to become a economist in the future because in school I study both the subject of economics and accounting.”

She acknowledged organisers for inviting her school to attend the one-day program.

“I would like to thank the Wood Ford School to invite the Naha Community High School to take part in this careers market so that our students can make good use of this wonderful privilege we have to visit the stalls and to gain more knowledge by asking questions.”

“I encouraged students to must aim and to achieve their goal in order to help them with their future careers. It is best that we can make use of all the opportunity that we have when attending such programs as this.”

The Chamber would like to thank Woodford for the successful collaboration in establishing the Careers Market and SICCI members who came out as sponsors of the event; South Pacific Oil, Solomon Islands Ports Authority, Pan Oceanic Bank, Adkonect, Coral Sea Resort and GTL Holdings.

The Careers Market will continue as an annual event.
