NUS JobsConnect 2012 – Bringing jobs to NUS Graduates!


Posted by osatsh | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 31, 2012

Check out our JobsConnect 2012 Video Highlights!


Jobsconnect 2012 was held on 30th May 2012 at MPSH 1, NUS.

The employment market in 2012 remained hot after gaining traction from the strong growth projection of year 2011. As with most other NUS Career Centre events, Jobconnect 2012 attracted over a thousand students and alumni promising more than 1000 job vacancies offered by over 60 participating organizations, spanning across many sectors.

Guest-of-honour – Professor Tan Eng Chye, Deputy President (Academic Affairs) and Provost of National University of Singapore graced the event acknowledging the roles employers, students and staff have played to make the event possible. Jobsconnect 2012 boasted participation from organizations from public service, consulting, finance, healthcare, IT, engineering and many more. Students are rewarded with a unique opportunity to get interviewed by or network with their desired employers of different sectors.

Students not only gained experience in communication and networking skills but too gained insights into various industries by interacting with employers.

Apart from the interview and networking sessions, Jobsconnect 2012 conducted career talks that seek to enlighten students on topics ranging from financial literacy, career progression and grooming tips. Fringe activities such as resume photograph taking and handwriting analysis were also available at the event.

Desmond, our Career Advisor for School of Computing. Do you know who your faculty’s Career Advisors are? They help not only in resume critiques, but help you plan your career path as well!

Similar to other career events, our career advisors were also on-site to provide expertise and advices to students on their resume and career options. It was particularly heartwarming to receive overwhelming requests and many positive feedbacks from students who had benefitted from these quick sessions with the career advisors. To those who had missed out on such opportunity, our career advisors remain available to speak to you with regards to your career paths and transitions at the NUS Career Centre.

Jobsconnect 2012 had been a resounding success. Since initiated three years ago to tide students through the bleak employment market in the global financial crisis, Jobsconnect had grown from strength to strength becoming an annual feature on NUS calendar. We appreciated students for their continued support and participation. We are excited and already looking forward to upcoming career events line up ahead. Until then.
