MASAF Virtual Career Fair 2021
9 Jan 2021 - 30 Jan 2021
This term, MASAF is taking its annual career flagship event online
Yep – You heard it right! Held 100 % online at a time where new norms are in place, MASAF Virtual Career Fair 2021 is the association’s biggest career event for the 2020/2021 term. It is an event that gives our students and employers a chance to meet one another, establish professional relationships, and discuss potential job or internship opportunities.
What will this event entail?
Company Live Sessions
9 Jan 2021 - 24 Jan 2021 • Saturday & Sunday
Prior to the main event, the organizing team will conduct a series of webinars featuring the representatives of our participating companies. This program will help students learn more about the participating companies, the industry they are in and help students understand better on what they are searching for in an ideal candidate. In addition, this event also signifies an opportunity for students to engage in a real-time conversation and online discussions with the employers via MASAFrance’s Facebook Live. Each company live session will last for 30 minutes.
Online Job Interview & Networking Sessions
28 Jan 2021 - 30 Jan 2021
Powered by Seeds Virtual Career Fair Platform, each employer will have its own ‘virtual’ booth in the event. Indeed, all information about the company and job/internship offerings will be made available to the participants here. Set to be the icing of the cake, this component of the event is a platform that directly connects students and representatives of participating companies. This could mean two things:
Firstly, participants will have the opportunity to undergo an online job interview with the employer. This can happen on the spot or scheduled in advance as students can submit their CVs prior to the session. Otherwise, a student can always schedule an appointment with the employer for some ‘Meet and Greet’ Session and Networking Opportunities.
Virtual Career Summit
30 Jan 2021 • 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. (Paris time zone)
This event will also feature a Virtual Career Summit. The summit will entail a series of career-related talks featuring industry experts, leaders and our very own alumni who would provide essential information to ace the employability of our graduates. It is a hands-on career event that intends to educate our students and allow them to connect with the esteemed speakers in a much more engaging and interactive manner. The career summit this year will be divided into 3 main components namely :- Industrial Insights Session, Alumni Sharing Session and a Career Enhancement Session.
