Youth@Work hosts employers event

Youth@Work (Y@W) hosted an Employer’s Event on Thursday this week at the Skyboard Conference Room, Honiara Hotel.

This event is held twice every year with the aim to inform and involve both the public and private sectors to holistically address growing unemployment among youth in Honiara.

Glennis Kuper Masaea from Y@W Internship stressed this event provides a platform for employers to know more about how they can add value and impact youth in Honiara through the Y@W internship Programme.

“Youth unemployment is an issue in every country in the region and we all can address it from whereever we stand whether it be the private or public sectors,” Mrs Masaea said.

This event will also feature short testimonials from successful employer and intern followed by our famous employer’s frequently-asked-questions session.

To top it all off, the Employer’s Event will end with a social touch providing opportunity for networking over fingerfood and tea.
