They also highlighted that these roles translates to long hours and hard work.
Two speakers from Hays Specialist Recruitment Pte Ltd and GMP Recruitment Services were invited to give talks to students on understanding their personality as well as understanding the career options available to them. The speakers who addressed the students praised their “energy and excitement”.

The annual career fair was an excellent platform to reach out and educate students on how to better prepare themselves for the career path ahead. It allowed the students to identify employment opportunities, expand their network, learn industry information, gather information and collect business cards. Overall, the students who attended had a great experience.
