Namibian companies regularly contact IIT looking for graduated students. Part of our corporate responsibility to our students is to keep on file the CV’s of students who are looking for employment in the field that they studied.
A great number of students have found permanent employment via this system. It is the students responsibility to make sure that the Student Councillor has the student’s curriculum vitae and that the information is kept current. This CV will only be held on file for 2 years and then be destroyed
