Does anyone have any success stories from the previous job fairs held in the city? If so, please do share. It’ll be great encouragement to a lot of the newer graduates here.

    I was there at the Rozeepk job fair held here a few months ago along with several other friends but surprisingly none of us has received ne calls from the organizations participating there. I can’t say if they were really there for HIRING or if this a new marketing gimmick!
    Wud luv to hear if neoone has ne success stories.

    last year’s job fair did have some positive output, although it cannot be expected that every person applying for a job at any organisation gets one.

    while working with my previous company, i did see some positive output, whereby many candidate profiles were actually considered to fill in some of the vacancies.

    as for other companies, some people noted a long queue on some of the stalls, where people were just concerned with throwing across their CVs.

    as i said above, not every person can actually get a job, you have to qualify for it… by that i mean you need to meet up to their minimum criteria. you do that, and you’re all good. if not, then you don’t stand a chance.

    the outlook of what the job fair holds for prospecting employees is clear … just don’t waste your time and that of others, apply where appropriate, and not just anywhere and everywhere.

    It sounds so funny that we stick a picture, and write dob and nic#, and personal interests on our resume in Pak.
    I was wondering, WTH … the interviewer has to do with how the interviewee looks like ?

    A training should be provided to our interviewers who dont have manners how to interview, they simply make the interviewee feel shame sometimes, they should be bound to the technical questions which are just related to the job description. We need to learn a lot.

    @KHITORPIT,

    even i used to think like that (about dob, nic, etc) until i came to europe and here they do require our pic, dob, etc. and i always hav to do some uneasy adjustments in my resume to fill in that stuff.

    @Atif Abdul Rahman: Don’t tell me you always change your pic, dob, etc :-)

    Well, for fresh grads – a one-to-one interaction with personnel from leading names in industry is an experience itself. It makes them actually explore their own ups and downs, highs and lows … not necessarily that you get hooked up at the end of a Job Fair … but it sure is a good way to jump in market …!

    Does this job fair is specially for IT ppl ? I guess so … as its arranged by PASHA. If they are really arranging job fairs that means their is a shortage of skilled IT professional in the market, otherwise why would they organize it, but then why do you guys are saying if somebody have a positive feedback from them or not ??? Is it bcoz they want more and more ppl to take admission in IT institutes ?

    I thought that IT market is doing really good in Khi, and their is always a shortage of skilled ppl in the market.

    This job fair was incredible waste of time and poorly managed. PASHA is very unprofessional organization. They were supposed to do in Islamabad as well but it get cancelled last day.
