Mega Careers & Study Fair 2015
Aug 22–23, 2015
11am to 6pm
KLCC (Halls 1 & 2)
Calling all jobseekers out there; if you have not already marked your calendar for the Mega Careers & Study Fair 2015 happening this Aug 22–23 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), you should.
It is not often that a bevy of employers would gather for an entire weekend in a purposeful effort to meet you and other jobseekers or prospective postgraduate students.
Following its huge success in February this year, the second instalment of 2015 is expected to draw in 50,000 visitor. The fair will bring together 150 leading graduate employers as well as universities from Malaysia and abroad, all under one roof.
A gold mine of job and education options
For jobseekers, this could be a good opportunity to get first-hand information of what employers are really looking for. Or, you could use it to explore different career options.
Many people tend to underestimate the power of networking and communication skills, especially when getting to meet face-to-face with potential employers.
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of a fair like this is that you would also become aware of the competition you are going to face in the sea of other candidates who may also be vying for the same position.
Likewise, for prospective students, getting a glimpse of the career path of your choice may also be a good guide to your course of study. Jobseekers may sometimes find it beneficial to up-skill with more education.
The Mega Careers & Study Fair @ KLCC is a win-win platform for not only jobseekers and prospective students but also organisations. Recruiters come with the intention to gain the highest possible number of prospects in the shortest possible time in hopes to get the top talents. On the other hand, visitors should definitely take advantage of this as this fair would provide a “freebie” opportunity to meet with multiple employers, in one single location.
A unique 3-in-1 event
The Mega Careers & Study Fair 2015 is made up of three segments that complement one another:
- Malaysia’s 100 Careers Fair
Comprising the country’s most popular graduate employers, offering the best internship and job opportunities for top talents.
- CareerBuilder Fair
CareerBuilder (formerly knowns as JobsCentral) – Malaysia’s fastest growing job search portal – brings together quality employers with lots to offer to professionals from all work levels and sectors.
- Postgradasia Postgraduate Studies Fair
Offering prospective students some of the best advice, guidance and first-hand information as the largest and longest-running education fair of its kind for the last 10 years.
In addition, you will also get the chance to meet the winner of Apprentice Asia, Jonathan Yabut of the Philippines, who will be sharing his insights and experiences.
Whether you are a jobseeker or a student, there is undoubtedly much to learn from the 29-year-old who was not only the youngest contestant of the reality show, but who also beat 11 others in seizing the prized job with Tan Sri Tony Fernandes.
A career fair like this is nothing but a convenient, one-stop shopping spot for your dream job, internship or education path.
