Despite the gloomy cloudy weather, more than 700 participants attended the event.
Most of the participants were satisfied when leaving the event, having taken the opportunity to get insight into the various companies’ working environments and meet their potential future colleagues. According to Ben, the Jobspin Job Fair was: ‘‘A nice experience. Great chats with companies here. I even got half job offers. Prague is great. Keep up the good work,” Another visitor, Vuk, said: “I really enjoyed the time spent at the Jobspin fair, I’ve talked with a lot of people who gave me useful information. I am looking for a job at the entry level – changing profession, and they gave me good feedback and such.”
The fair included presentations for job-seekers, assistance for foreigners from relocation consultants, and free professional consultations regarding CV writing and interview preparation. This year, Czech Courses even ran a Czech language class.
The majority of attendees were speakers of English, Spanish, Dutch, German, French, Hindu and Chinese. Most of them were looking for entry-level positions in the city, having already completed their first studies and work experience in their home countries or other countries in Europe. The community that gathered at Anglo-American University the first weekend in November was truly international.
