Career Management

Putting you on the path to success

Our Career Development Programme is about taking you from the classroom into the workplace. We work together in understanding your career goals and set a clear path to achieving those goals. We equip you with the skills you need to formulate your CV, cover letter and LinkedIn profile and provide you with constructive feedback to ensure that you are optimally positioned out in the marketplace. We’ll even do mock interviews so that when opportunity knocks you’re more than prepared.

As a student registered in one of our academic programmes, personal career development is an intergral part of your journey at WBS.

In addition, we are on hand to provide you with information and on-point advice about career choice, employers, salary trends and best practice in career strategy and job search. 

The Careers Management Area will send you regular updates on workshops, events and opportunities.

Career Management Employer Guide

The Wits Business School Careers Area has compiled an annual Employer Guide. This includes companies who have recently and historically engaged with the Business School around graduate recruitment, internship and professional/experienced hire employment opportunities (full time and/or contract). This guide is presented to support students and graduates in their job search endeavours, through the provision of company information as well as links to company websites and recruiting platforms/portals.
