Will all the sessions be interactive?
Some of the sessions are designed as talks which will be broadcasted and live-streamed for everyone followed by the Q&A session. For others, they will be more interactive where candidates will be split into multiple groups with a moderator and they can practice some of the skills.
How should I prepare for the mock interviews?
We suggest that you treat the mock interview like a real interview. The interview will be technical in nature and will be representative of what you will go through in a real interview. We will be providing guidelines on how to prepare on Day 1 of the event as well.
What happens in a CV Clinic?
Our team will go over some sample/representative resumes and design portfolios and give feedback. We will not have time to go over each and every resume but we hope the advice we give is useful for the broader audience. The session is meant to be interactive so please bring your questions and comments.
What happens if I don't do well in the mock interview?
The mock interview is intended to help you practice and to provide feedback on your interviewing skills. The result does not affect your participation in the career fair in any way.
Can I skip the prep days and still attend the main event?
Yes - the prep days are optional and intended as a resource for the candidates. There is no compulsion to attend.
