UCT Careers Service has been voted the Best Careers Service and Best Careers Fair for 2016. The results were announced at the South African Graduate Employers Association (SAGEA) research seminar earlier this month.

This follows the independent SAGEA Employer Benchmark Survey 2016, which was conducted among 98 leading graduate employers in South Africa.

Director David Casey said the awards served as “fantastic recognition” from employers, one of Careers Service’s key stakeholder groups.
