Vacancies in India
(It is just like a normal Careers Fair except that it is all online.)
It is open to all students across the UK and is being co-ordinated by a group of Universities from the West Midlands, and it is FREE to use.
At the moment they have 53 employers booked in as Exhibitors - they are major Indian Companies and many are multi-national.
The online Fair will run from the 14th to the 25th February, but you can register now and you can be doing a lot of preparation in advance. For example:- get your CV ready to upload; work out which of the Companies exhibiting you want to communicate with; prepare questions that you want to ask them.
Then when it goes live on the 14th you’ll be ready to communicate with the employers.
Even if your main plan is to secure a job in the UK, it would be a good idea to have a back-up plans which might include returning home to work for an Indian Company/Indian branch of a multi-national Company. This Fair could provide you with invaluable help re this.
