Job Placement Programmes

The Annual On-Campus Recruitment Programme (or the Annual Graduate  Recruitment Programme [AGRP])

The office arranges a Graduate Recruitment Programme from Mid-March to the end of April between final year students and employers needing graduates to work in their organizations.

Over fifty organizations participate annually. The Jamaican job market has become increasingly competitive and graduating students are encouraged to take full opportunity of these interviews. Students will receive more detailed information on how to participate during their final year.

Part-time Employment

Requests are made to the office for on and off campus part-time employment of students. If you need to participate in this programme, you may complete the application form which is available at the office. This will be kept on file and you will be contacted as soon as jobs are available. You are permitted to work for a maximum of twelve hours weekly if you are registered in a full-time programme.

Please note that first year students are not allowed to apply until the second semester of the academic year.

Summer Employment and Work Study Programmes

If you are interested in Summer Job Placement you should complete an application form as early a possible just after registration for the academic year. The closing date is mid-April, but jobs are allotted on a first come first serve basis. You can visit the office after examinations regarding your placement. Through our workstudy programme with public and private sector organizations, a limited number of undergraduates are placed in career related work during the summer vacation. Collect your application form from the office during the first semester.

Alumni Placement

Throughout the year, private and public sector organizations advertise their vacancies with the Department. Alumni are therefore invited to submit their resumes so that they can be assisted in their job search. Assistance is also given in job-hunting skills and techniques and resume writing. Alumni also have access to our Career Information Centre.
