Dear UTech Jamaica Alumni

  • Would it help to boost your confidence, if you were sure you had a well crafted, value adding resume and/or LinkedIn Profile, which clearly and impressively answers the No. 1 question in a recruiter’s mind “What value will this candidate add to my organization?”

  • Would it mean a lot to you to be able to handle this…wait…period [wait to find a job, or wait to find a better job] without feeling fearful, angry, anxious and uncertain?

Jamaica’s Hurricane History: A Timeline
Posted on diGJamaica

Annually, the hurricane season lasts from June to November. Jamaica, along with several other Caribbean islands and mainland territories, falls into what is commonly understood to be the Atlantic hurricane belt, meaning that these countries often experience the effects of storm systems during the hurricane season.

Some of the storms experienced by Jamaica have formed unforgettable parts of the nation’s history because of the impact they had on lives, land and infrastructure. diGJamaica has compiled a timeline of the storms that have impacted Jamaica since the practice of naming hurricanes, which started in early 1950s – all in our quest to help you ‘diG’ deeper into Jamaica’s history of hurricanes.
