Aiming to create a roadmap to deliver high-end career opportunities for their students, Horizon Campus recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Azend Technologies, to offer access to Careers360.lk, a data-enabled and technology-driven careers & educational services platform.

Careers360 is a product by Azend Technologies, a company founded by experienced innovators and technologists from a variety of industries, including fintech, agriculture, automotive, power solutions, retail, logistics, and more.

This valuable partnership provides Horizon Campus student body with excellent employment possibilities through Careers360.lk and assists in the growth and industrial training of their students.

The MoU was officially signed in the presence of CEO of Horizon Campus Mr. Ajith Wanasinghe and Vice Chancellor of Horizon Campus Prof. S.J.B.A Jayasekera, the MoU between Mr. Upul Daranagama, Chairman of Horizon Campus, and Mr. Rajive Silva, Chief Executive Officer of Azend Technologies.

The chairman of Horizon Campus, Mr. Upul Daranagama, emphasized the significance of this partnership by saying that “strategic relationships with the corporate world play a critical role in the teaching, research, and other engagement initiatives. All of our degree programs, internships, workplace-based projects, and other learning opportunities are created with the active participation of business and industry to provide the students with the most advantages possible. As a result, collaborations like this one are integral to everything we do. In particular for the IT industry, I am looking forward to working closely with Azend Technologies to develop a workforce that is industry-ready”

When asked about the partnership, Mr. Rajive Silva, Chief Executive Officer, remarked, “Considering the recent several years of economic hardships, a lot of our talent is eager to leave our country for greener pastures. However, despite the widespread misconception that Sri Lanka lacks opportunity, that was not the only reason we created Careers360.lk. By assisting our children in becoming more employable, we are also dedicated to bridging the talent gap between the talent that the industry needs and the talent that is currently accessible. This collaboration with Horizon Campus, one of Sri Lanka’s premier higher education institutions, marks an important turning point for us as we continue to assist the development of skilled labor for the sector and elevate Sri Lanka’s standing."

Through educational partnerships as that signed with Horizon Campus, Careers360.lk will continue its goal of assisting talent to be more employable and take Sri Lankan talent to the rest of the world.
