King David careers evening exposes opportunities
King David Schools held its annual careers evening at Sandton Shul Hall on 21 February, and the Grades 11 and 12s from all Jewish schools were invited to attend.
Started in 2008, the careers evening has grown over the years. This year, the South African Jewish Board of Education hosted more than 60 exhibitors including top financial institutions, local and international universities and colleges, aviation, hotel and hospitality, advertising, fashion and design, health and fitness, beauty, design schools, and gap-year programmes.
“We invite the Grade 11s and 12s from all Jewish schools because we feel it’s an important opportunity to expose all kids in the Jewish community to many of the professions and tertiary institutions available after school,” says Rabbi Ricky Seeff, the general director of the SABJE (King David Schools).
