UBD to host career fair

Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) will organise the UBD Career Fair 2021 from January 11 to 16.

The five-day event will be delivered both physically and virtually in light of the current pandemic and in compliance with the Ministry of Health (MoH) guidelines.

A website dedicated for the Career Fair has been established to allow users 24-hour access, enabling online interaction between the target groups – UBD students, alumni and public- and potential employers.

Physical venues on campus are provided for audience who wish to watch the live-streaming of engagement sessions with the exhibitors as well as for walk-in interviews.

The event anticipates the participation of a variety of industries ranging from educational institutions, food and beverage, communications, health, and several government agencies, offering employment opportunities and walk-in interviews for full-time and part-time vacancies as well as internship placements.

Pre-event activities dubbed ‘UBD Conversations – Where We Talk About Your Career Plans’ consisting of career talks and career workshops featuring industry’ experts will be held until January 9. The activities will allow opportunities for students and alumni to acquire knowledge on developing the highly demanded necessities in a majority of today’s careers, such as CV and cover letter-writing, as well as interview, communication and presentation skills among others.
