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 you feel more hopeful if you had someone to help you develop a job search or career management strategy so you could get on with your life…with better fit between who you are and what you do, plus better compensation-focus-joy-peace?
  • 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?

Seaga

The Most Honourable Edward Seaga, ON, PC

The University of Technology, Jamaica notes with profound regret, the passing of former Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Edward Seaga, earlier today.

Mr Seaga has served as a distinguished Chancellor of our University from 2010 to the present. During this period, he was a major source of inspiration and a guide to the leadership of the University. He was instrumental in annual meetings of the University and lent his wealth of experience and expertise to all aspects of the University’s work. He was also Pro-Chancellor at UTech, Ja. between 2008 and 2010.

Edward Seaga was a pioneer in all aspects of Jamaican life. At the University, we recall his most recent public appearance in our community. This was Mr Seaga’s Distinguished Public Lecture in commemoration of the University’s 60th Anniversary. That lecture, which was concerned with the “Origins and Development of Jamaican Music” saw Mr Seaga at his spellbinding best. He reminded us of his outstanding oratorical skills, his deep love of Jamaica and Jamaicans, and of his extensive knowledge of Jamaican cultural and religious practices.
