Others need it for wealth creation through long-term or short-term rental to residents of Jamaica, visitors, expatriates on work visas and businessess. In case you are interested in this significant area of life, we share some valuable information below for your further research and verification towards real estate ownership for residential, business or investment purposes.

Dear CAST – UTech, Ja Alumni,

If you don’t mind, please take a few quick minutes to share your latest contact details with us. Our current database is comprised of exports from our University’s student database, done annually in your graduation year. This means with our mobile and global lives, the information we have on you would have changed quite a bit since our University first captured it, in your first year with us.

Our current alumni email database is also very simple, yet functional, in enabling us to share updates with you. However, it does not give us a comprehensive view of you beyond your name and email.

While we hope one day to be able to afford to have a robust alumni database, as this would enable us to properly capture both your history with us, and also  who you have become today as professionals & retirees, we think this simple and ongoing Alumni Contact Update Exercise is a good middle ground. So we hope you will agree and choose to participate.

As you may know, since 2014, we have been gently reaching out and inviting alumni to share their contact details with us. Over 300 CAST-UTech, Ja Alumni located worldwide have happily responded since then. However, over 60,000 alumni have graduated from our noble institution to date. We don’t want to miss out on connecting with you as well.

So please CLICK the link below to share your most current information with us. Of course, if you would take a moment to also share this blog link with your Alumni colleagues, we’d greatly appreciate that as well. Always happy to connect with a graduate of CAST – UTech, Jamaica!

Yes, I Want to Stay in Touch With UTech, Jamaica!

 

Thanks for your continued support of UTech, Jamaica.

We Appreciate You!

UTech Mentor Programme 2016-17

The University of Technology, Jamaica is currently recruiting professionals (Public, Private, Non-Governmental, Business, Religious Sector etc)  with 5 or more years work experience to serve as mentors to our students, especially final year students. Of course, we welcome all interested Alumni who wish to give-back and invest in youth development and our University, through our Mentorship programme. However our Mentors do not have to be past students of UTech, Jamaica. If you know of any professional who you think would provide excellent guidance to youth about to transition into the world of work, please share this link with them and encourage them to sign up to be a UTech, Jamaica Mentor 2016!

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP TO BE A UTech, Ja MENTOR!

 

As a Mentor at the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech, Jamaica) You Have the Wonderful Opportunity to Draw On your Life Experiences, Failures and Triumphs to Guide and Encourage Students …

Who feel lonely, confused, completely overwhelmed

Who are at a crossroads, needing to make a critical do-or-die decisions but don’t have the experience or information needed, or the confidence to just-make-the-decision and move on with life powerfully

Who need someone that they know for sure is in their corner. Someone who has time for them…to listen, to understand, to encourage…to give them room to explore and fail without judgment, as well as to celebrate with them when they get it right

Who need someone to provide a safe space to work through the challenging life experiences, and be better, stronger, and wiser for it.

And our students at UTech, especially our final year students, need someone wise to the world, and to the workplace, to listen, to understand, to gently guide and to celebrate with them, as they take their final steps as students and transition into the uncertainties of:  job search; the workplace; re-paying student loans; establishing a meaningful career and creating a future they can pursue with hope and passion.

The Career & Placement Unit  is seeking to recruit 150 new & returning mentors to UTech Jamaica’s  Annual Mentorship Programme.

Can You Invest in UTech, Jamaica and the Caribbean by Mentoring an Upcoming Professional for this Academic Year 2016/17?

“It’s durable. The energy level lasts long. It is convenient when you don’t want to use JPS light” – Rachana McPherson, FELS, Class of 20111

Dear UTech, Jamaica,  Alumni Communitiy & Friends,

With your help our recent LUCI LIGHT FUNDRAISER, JULY 2016 was a success! Thanks to you, 95+ persons offered support.

Contribution $1700.

Our purpose for our fundraiser is to support the University’s Student Welfare Fund, as well as Student Engagement & Alumni Engagement activities.

“It makes a good night light on the lower setting and it does give good illumination on the bright setting.” Jody-Ann Finakin, SCIT Alumna

In July, we partnered with a retailer of the lights, and we received a commission. For August, 2016 we hope to purchase lights and retail them ourselves as this would be more advantageous to our University.

“Quite bright, lightweight. I keep it in the car for emergencies. I love it!”Hermine Bascoe, FHAS, Class of 2006

We also hope to arrange for Salary Deductions for UTech, Jamaica Staff who may be interested in purchasing Luci Lights.

“We’ve been having power cuts and were very elated to have the use of Luci Lights. It has adequate illumination, allowing us to even read the newspaper.”Basil Clarke, Class of 2002
