So for students to get the opportunity to experience the world of work, it will be an avenue to learn on the job, know what to expect in the work environment, and also be ready for the labour market.
Aside from internship opportunities, Jobberman will provide job hunting tips, organize career fairs and CV writing clinics for these students as they prepare for the labour market. As a brand, this is what we do best and we find pride in that”, Hilda added.
