Get career advice & resume reviews at the e2i job fair

Whether you’re entering the working world for the very first time or switching roles many years into your career, the job search can be daunting.

You’ll undoubtedly have lots of questions and uncertainties. While you can read all the career self-help books in the world and watch every inspirational YouTube talk on the subject, nothing beats guidance that’s tailored to you as an individual.

At the e2i job fair, you’ll meet career coaches who will dish out sage career advice after piecing together information relating to your career goals, skill gaps, and concerns.

No registration is needed — just walk up to the booth and wait for any of the coaches to be available to commence the session.

Once you have an idea of the career path you’d like to embark on, it’s time to start sending out those applications.

Your CV will be the first impression you make on hirers. And as everybody knows, first impressions count.

If you’ve been staring at that PDF doc on your laptop and wondering how you can make your credentials, achievements, and skills sound a lot more enticing to employers, run it by the expert eyes of the e2i coaches, who can give you tips on how to build a proper resume.

With their guidance, you’ll have what you need to come up with a resume that can make you shine in front of your future (hopefully) boss.

Walk-in interviews guarantee facetime with employers

Of course, having the most perfect resume in the world won’t mean much if it doesn’t actually reach employers.

One of the most frustrating things about the job hunt is sending out countless applications to companies, only to be ignored entirely. This can happen for various reasons, such as your email getting buried underneath tons of other submissions.

That clearly won’t be a problem at the e2i job fair, where you can go for walk-in interviews and meet employers on the spot—no more ghosting or getting lost in inboxes.

  • Logistics assistant
  • Retail assistant or supervisor
  • Pastry chef, baker, cook, or station chef
  • Security officer

Some of these positions have part-time or flexible work arrangements, so be sure to ask about them so you can pick a gig that suits your schedule and preferences.

Even if you don’t see anything you fancy, this would be the perfect way to brush up on your interview skills.

Workshops that give you hands-on experience

Going for interviews and getting a verbal understanding of what the job entails is one thing. Actually finding yourself in the middle of the task can be another matter altogether.

You don’t want to show up for your first day at work, only to be overwhelmed by how different it turned out to be from your expectations.

To give you a taste of what the daily grind might include, two companies will be conducting hands-on workshops, where you can have a go at various activities related to the positions they’re offering.

Now that you’ve given a shot at the role, you can decide whether it’s something you truly want to pursue. And even if it’s not, at least you got to try something new, right?
