Children explore job choices at GPF career fair

Assistant Commissioner and Commander, ‘A’ Division of the GPF, Marlon Chapman, in declaring the event a success, said the career day was inclined to youths who are about to attain working age. It will allow them to see what is there to be offered by the entities represented.

Some of the 16 agencies on display were CARICOM, Massy Group of Companies, the Ministry of Public Health, and the Guyana Defence Force among others.
