UG graduates get employment offer from Neal and Massy after training
November 12, 2002
Seven of the nine University of Guyana (UG) graduates who recently completed the Neal and Massy one-year Graduate Training Program-me have been offered permanent employment within the Group.
And the other two would have satisfied one of the programme’s main objectives by making themselves “available to work in corporate Guyana,” a release from the Neal and Massy Group of Companies said. Trinidad-based Group Chairman, Christian Maingot presented the certificates on Wednesday to the graduates at the DOCOL Training Centre and also met the new batch of students who have been selected to participate in the 2002-2003 training programme.
The graduates - Bibi Baksh, Deon Barnwell, Deborah Ceres, Melissa Dhani, Nazeela Haniff, Monette Garnett, Mohamed H. Khan, Sharon Mungal and Stanford Wilson - were exposed to training in a number of areas such as management, marketing and sales, customer services relations and finance and accounting, the release said.
Seventy-nine University of Guyana graduates have experienced training on the programme, which was resuscitated in 1997 after being dormant a few years.
Desmond Chase, Human Resources Director, in his opening remarks at the graduation ceremony, said the Group was prompted to launch the training programme because they “recognised that mainly through UG, there is an oversupply of qualified Guyanese who lack the required working experience to make them suitable for certain jobs they rightly aspire for,” the release said.
