Fit to Recruit 2019

 

Dear UTech, Ja. Alumni:

Re: UTech, JA.  – “Fit” to Recruit Charity – Request for Donations

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, Ja) host its annual Career & Job Placement Fair in the Alfred Sangster Auditorium on Friday March 15, 2019 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.

UTech, Jamaica Book Launch: Jamaica: Paradise and Paradox, Vol 1 – Paul W. Ivey, PhD October 2, 2018

Book Description: “Jamaica: Paradise and Paradox”

“Jamaica’s exquisite beauty that encompasses verdant hillsides, rolling plains, pristine coastal areas dotted with white sand beaches incessantly caressed by the wind and bathed by turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, plus the ‘irie vibes’ of Jamaicans collectively conspire to make the Island a unique place on planet Earth. Political Independence from Britain in 1962 ignited hope of a better future for all Jamaicans. Indeed, Jamaica made significant early progress, was regarded as the ‘Pearl of the Caribbean,’ and a positive example for newly-Independent countries. But now, there is pain in paradise! Jamaica is a paradox! Although still stunningly beautiful, and has registered some notable successes, Jamaica’s dominant portrait is of a traumatized nation hobbled by many problems, the most troubling of which is a full-spectrum crime problem resulting in one of the highest murder rates globally. The author was born after Independence, and in this two-volume book, he discusses Jamaica’s challenges and offers prescriptions for restoring the health of his sick homeland.”
