Pics taken yesterday, the last day of the Pesta Kerjaya 2008 organized by the Labour Department, Ministry of Home Affairs. It was a successful and well organized event judging from the record number of jobseekers who visited the fair.

All exhibitors at the fair received quite a few job applications. Brunei Methanol Co received about 200 applications for the various positions available, Abdul Razak Holdings received about 400, and Royal Brunei Airlines received over 100 as well.

One thing I found quite odd about the job fair was the many PARENTS who came to the fair looking for jobs for their children! That says a lot about the level commitment of their kids who cant even be bothered to turn up in person at the job fair doesnt it? Even odder are PARENTS who insist on coming along to the job interviews being conducted at the fair! I mean there’s such a thing as doting parents, but you gotta draw the line somewhere eh?

Odd story to share: this young lady wanted to win a prize by answering a quiz we were holding but the dad said no…. i was like, eh?

Now a days resumes and interviews have become an art it self which requires a lot of coaching from experts in this field. So much so that resume writers and interview specialist have found a niche in the market. Its all about hitting the nail right on the head so as to speak. There’s no second takes…

Reda, we left early mate! masa pesta kerjaya…only met Ranz atupun he came around 4ish hehehe…

JS: absolutely agree with you on that one! Sadly, many young people walk into an interview totally unprepared, which can only result in failure…
