Top 6 Reasons to Attend a Career Fair

With convocation just around the corner, some of you may be searching around for a company to call your home. Here are a few reasons why you should head on down to STJobs’ Career & Learning Fair 2018!

 

#1 DISCOVER NEW CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

At a career fair, there are various companies from a spectrum of industries waiting to hire! If you are a fresh graduate or someone looking for a job, this is the place for you. You would be able to converse personally with recruiters from the company, and pass them your resume if they are interested. Win-win!

 

#2 NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

As mentioned above, there will be employees from various companies stationed around the entire convention hall. As you engage in casual conversation with them and learn more about their companies, you are also building bonds with them! Remember to get their name cards if you are keen to establish a connection with the firm.

This works the best if you are still undecided about which companies you would like to go for, and would just like a point of contact.

 

#3 STAY UPDATED WITH THE INDUSTRY TRENDS

If you are looking for a career switch, then perhaps the industry trends have shifted since. By attending a career fair and chatting with the people stationed there, you will be able to understand better the various requirements and qualifications needed for that role.

 

#4 HEAR & LEARN FROM PROFESSIONALS

The fair organised by STJobs this July involves both career and learning aspects! Hence, apart from having companies who are employing, we also special guest speakers who will be giving talks at certain hours of the day. You can give a listen and learn from professional speakers and industry experts. They will be covering topics like personal grooming and how to handle head-hunters.

 

#5 PRACTICE YOUR ELEVATOR PITCH

With the sheer number of participants at the fair, the amount of time that you get with the recruiters at the booths is short. Hence, practice your elevator pitch! It is the best time to do so, without any loss – see if your elevator pitch works, and refine it if it didn’t work out too well in your favour.

 

#6 PERSONALITY PROFILING & FREE CAREER COACHING FROM PROFESSIONALS

At the event, spot our roaming guest who will be asking people to try out the IDENTI3 profiling! It is a quick, 20 questions personality test which determines what kind of a person you are. Moreover, our guest speakers are professionals who will be imparting their tips and knowledge. Don’t miss those talks!

 

With all of the above reasons, come on down to our Career & Learning Fair 2018! If you would like to know more about the fair, click here! We hope to see you there!
