Job fair coming up July 23rd

PICS has successfully been hosting the Mega Job Fair for the last 5 years. The 2009 Mega Job Fair will have about 100 exhibitors from various fields and sectors to talk to job seekrs about available job opportunities in their organizations. Job seekers will have free access to hundreds of employers and career choices under one roof in one day.

We recommend that newcomers bring along a stack of resumés and wear professional clothing. Come early, talk with confidence and share the best of yourself. Prepare a list of questions that you wish to ask the exhibitors. If you are well prepared and organized, you may get interviewed, get important information about your career prospects, make important networking contacts, get practical experience at interacting with HR personnel or you may even get hired at the job fair.

PICS has successfully organized job fairs for the last three years, and the event has grown each year. In 2005, there were 45 exhibitors and 2,500 participants; in 2006, there were 76 exhibitors and 4,500 participants; and in 2007, there were 79 exhibitors and 5,100 participants.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Mega Job Fair, please call Renu Gambhir @ PICS 604 596 7722, extension 125.
