POND ISLAND – Students of the Milton Peters College (MPC) paid a visit to the TelEm Group main building recently to learn about the company, and also to quiz personnel about job opportunities at their favorite telecommunications provider.
The visit took place last week and involved two classes of senior students, now busy considering their career options. The students were given a presentation outlining the type of work that is carried out within the company and the skill sets required for various positions. They also received a tour of the Earth Station to see some of the company’s switching equipment in action.
Personnel from Human Resources, Finance and Accounting, Technical and IT Departments, made themselves available to talk about their respective functions and to also answer questions from students.
Manager, Human Resources and Development Shadira Lont said it was natural for students with a liking for figures to go the route of accounting or administration, while students who enjoy working in the field and doing hands-on work would have a preference for the Technical Department.
“I would encourage you to leave all your options open and to study hard so that you can make your own choice when the time is right,” Lont informed the students during the main presentation.
She recounted her own experience when she began in the Customer Care Department, and learned to interact with customers, while learning about the business and all the products the company had to offer.
According to Lont, a career in the telecommunications industry in general and at TelEm Group in particular, is worthwhile with many opportunities for growth for employees with drive and ambition.
She thanked the students and their teachers for their attention and insightful questions and also members of staff, including coordinator Carmita Brooks, Elroy Hughes, Stanley Faneyte, Reuben Stevens, Lucien Hodge, Ralph Boirard and Veronica Browne, who gave their time to provide students with valuable information they can use in making up their minds about their future career goals.
“I would like to encourage others to also share time well spent on such a valuable contribution to impact the lives of these young people,” added Lont.
