Sen. Husbands: Never too early to think about a career

 

Start considering your future career from early.
 
This was the advice Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, Senator Harcourt Husbands, gave to students at the Wesley Hall Junior School yesterday as it hosted a Careers Showcase.
 
The event held the theme ‘Pride and Industry: Productivity Is Everyone’s Responsibility’.
 
“Maybe your mind may change a little later, but certainly at this stage it is never too early to be thinking about what you want to do when you leave school because those years are going to fly by extremely quickly,” he stated.
 
He also reminded the school’s Class Four students, as well as those visiting from St. Ambrose and Eagles Academy that job opportunities existed regionally and internationally and not just at home.
 
Placing special emphasis on careers based on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), he urged them to embrace these as they moved onto their respective secondary schools.
 
During the morning, the students took the opportunity to visit booths from Invest Barbados, the Royal Barbados Police Force, the Barbados Water Authority and the Barbados Port Authority, to name a few.
