Students connect with future employers at JIS Careers Carousel

THE Jerudong International School (JIS) held its annual Careers Carousel yesterday, and accredited experts within their specialist fields were invited to give presentations to over 300 students in Years 11-12.

The students were allowed to attend two talks of their choice, with approximately 60 speakers presenting and discussing the topic of their future careers.

Among this year’s speakers were Nicola Rosenblum, the Australian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam; Ben Boddy, the Deputy British High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam; Shazali Sulaiman, the resident partner of KPMG Brunei and Chairman of the Brunei Darussalam International Chamber of Commerce and Industry; JIS alumni, Shinny Chai, from The Collective; Aminudin Zaki bin Dato Abdul Rahman, Counsel and Deputy Public Prosecutor at the Criminal Justice Division of Attorney General’s Chambers; and Jason Kok, the Economics Manager at the Economics and Statistics Unit of Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD).

Each talk included a question-and answer session, and students had the opportunity to ask about their chosen careers and network with the professionals to arrange a possible work placement.

Many careers were represented for the first time in this year’s Careers Carousel, such as Marketing, Marine Biology, Info-Communications Technology (ICT) and Neuro-Science.
