UTech Charity: “Fit” To Recruit October 28, 2014

Fit to Recruit Charity Flyer

 

Re: Request for Donations – “Fit” to Recruit Charity

Imagine being the first in your family to go to college, being away from home and somewhat maturing in a strange environment. Imagine being from a needy family, that has spent all they had to help you through your university days, and they have no more to give? Where would you go for help? What if you were from a family that “dressing up” was not a routine and you simply lack both the knowledge and the means to do so? If after spending four years in college
in a struggling economy a job opportunity presented itself, would you want to be dressed properly to make a strong first impression? Our final year male students would.

The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) will host its annual Career & Job Placement Fair on Friday, March 20, 2015 in the Alfred Sangster Auditorium under the theme “Advancing into the World of Work.” As one of the leading institutions in the region, we believe it is our responsibility to provide avenues for our students to interact with recruiters locally, regionally and internationally.

Approximately five hundred (500) students are expected to participate in this event and will interact with over eighty (80) recruiters. Over the years, there has been a growing need among our male student population for appropriate attire for employment interviews. We are seeking partners for our initiative to dress at least thirty (30) males with financial needs for their interviews during this recruiting event. Therefore, we invite you and/or your organization to join the “Fit” to Recruit Charity for 2015 and beyond.
