SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – The St. Maarten Career & Study Fair Committee is pleased to announce that they will be hosting their annual Career & Study Fair on Tuesday, October 30, 2018.
Last year the Committee was forced to cancel the Career Fair, as a direct result of the devastating Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The Committee welcomes the community to their annual Career & Study Fair on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at the Bel-Air Community Center under the theme: “What you do today can improve your tomorrows”.
The Career Fair will allow interested students and parents to meet with the various college representatives and become more familiar with career opportunities.
Pre-exam and exam students from all secondary schools on the island will be accommodated from 9:00 a.m.to 1:30 p.m.
The Career & Study Fair will be open to the general public from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The Committee is appealing to the general public to take advantage of this opportunity.
Participating colleges and university representatives from the region, Curaçao, Aruba, Bonaire, Anguilla, the United States and Holland will be on hand to share information about their academic institutions and services.
This year we are happy that more (new) Dutch and US colleges and universities will be joining the 2018 Fair. Since studying in the region is being promoted by all the former Netherlands Antilles, the Career and Study Fair Committee is happy to have the colleges and universities from Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire fully on board.
In addition, local educational institutions such as the University of St. Martin, representatives from the Student Support Services, NIPA as well as the Cape and IB programs will be in attendance to provide information to the public regarding their services.
There will also be local businesses and organizations in attendance, such as UTS, Winair and the White & Yellow Cross. We encourage all other interested businesses to register as there are spots still available. Institutions who have not yet confirmed their participation, are encouraged to complete their registration process.
“The Committee is grateful for the businesses, colleges and universities that have confirmed their participation in this event. The information that will be disseminated will be helpful to not only the youth of Country St. Maarten, but to anyone who would like to further their education, when deciding what their next step in life would be.
Attendees are encouraged to use this opportunity to obtain more information on a particular career they might be interested in”, committee officials said. This annual event promises to be very informative and serves to support the decision-making process in furthering one’s education and or career path.
The general public is invited to come out and benefit from the information and advice that will be made available. Visitors at the fair will be able to meet representatives from a wide selection of colleges and universities to get detailed information about the courses they are interested in.
The experienced representatives from the colleges and universities will be present to offer guidance to students on their study options. Parents and or guardians are especially encouraged to visit the Fair.
