BUV Online Career Fair 2021 by the British University Vietnam successfully took place on 30th September & 1st October, 2021. Being the university’s first of its kind, the event was an interactive digital platform to assist industry employers and BUV’s students and alumni community in connecting, recruiting, and sharing core values during this time of uncertainty. As the only global workforce solutions provider among 35 leading corporations in various industries to join the career fair, ManpowerGroup Vietnam consultants have met and interviewed many seniors and alumni of BUV during the two-day event.
On day 1 of the fair, Ms. Dinh Nu Quynh Nhu (Jessie Dinh), Senior Recruitment Consultant at Manpower Vietnam introduced job search resources and tactics that aim to assist BUV students in a competitive job market, and how to establish their personal brand and network. Particularly, during the Q&A session, the students got advices from our senior consultant regarding strategies to impress and persuade recruiters when you don’t have much in working experiences.
With in-depth understanding of the local labour market and job search strategies, Jessie’s sharing at the workshop was insightful and valuable, which received lively engagement and positive feedback from many students.
The main part of the BUV Online Career Fair 2021 was on day 2. With 35 employer booths joining the virtual exhibition hall, students and alumni had chances to chat and have virtual interview directly with interested employers to explore the labour market and available vacancies. There was a series of interesting and helpful activities at ManpowerGroup Vietnam’s booth, including public and private chat with our professional consultants, exclusive 1:1 virtual interview (limited slots) with the recruiters via video chat function, and directly applying CVs to available positions. ManpowerGroup Vietnam employer booth attracted the interest and participation of many attendees.
As both a recruiter and a leading global workforce solutions provider, we are glad to help BUV students and alumni in exploring the job market and prepare for their future career paths. We believe that a positive attitude, confidence and willingness to learn will help them succeed wherever they go.
