Spring and Autumn in Prague and Brno are exciting times full of fresh new possibilities for your career. If you are ready to go through a series of mini-interviews to find the company with the business culture and attitude you like, then these fairs are for you! The Jobspin Multilingual Job Fairs are the biggest career fairs for expatriate and bilingual job seekers in the Czech Republic.
Jobspin Job Fairs create an ideal environment where international job seekers can easily meet representatives of various companies in the same place and ask any questions they have. “Their CV is actually the only thing visitors really need to bring. It’s a good idea to have more copies with their contact details included so that they can leave them with the recruiters,” said Eduard Soukup from employment agency Grafton Recruitment.
From the other side, participating in career fairs offers representatives from employers a simple way to engage naturally with a diverse talent pool, and quickly screen potential candidates for open vacancies and positions they may have in the future.
What Makes Jobspin Job Fairs Popular Among Expats and Employers
Career fairs are an excellent way to boost your job search. “It’s a great chance for people to step out of the online environment, and have face-to-face meetings with the people you might potentially be spending eight hours a day with. You can get a direct experience to choose what’s best for you,” explained Katerina Kukrechtova from the Jobspin organizing team.
The Jobspin Job Fairs, now in their 14th and 15th editions, have maintained their popularity, and are in fact growing in attendance each time. Kukrechtova explained why: “Jobspin Job Fairs attract job seekers and employers because they are very specific, exclusively targeting expats who can speak English and want to find a job in the Czech Republic, and the companies that are seeking internationally-minded employees. The second thing is that we always try to take a personal approach to both employers and visitors. Good communication is crucial to us and we believe it makes people feel relaxed at such a demanding event.” The job fairs usually welcome from 500 to 1,000 visitors in one day, depending on the city.
What’s New In The Jobspin Job Fairs in 2020?
“Thanks to the amazing feedback we received from both the exhibitors and visitors at the previous editions of the Jobspin Multilingual Job Fair, we have been able to improve the structure of future events,” said Angelo Casadei, one of the organizers of Jobspin. Visitors will be able to pre-register online (free of charge) for the extensive presentation and workshop program hosted by the exhibiting companies and experts.
“Another new service we now offer is a special part of the program specifically tailored for HR professionals, to keep them updated on the newest changes to the employment process for foreigners, visa laws, the psychological aspects of working in a foreign country, managing intercultural teams, common concerns among both employees and employers, and other useful topics,” added Casadei.
