As many as 20 companies, mostly banks, had the chance to directly interact with prospective employees at Banking Academy’s job fair this morning.
At the fair, students submitted their resumes to the employers they want then, if they are chosen, sat down for an interview with the companies’ staff right at the companies’ booth and then expect to hear from companies at the end of the event.
“We can talk directly to the recruiter. It’s faster and feels more relaxed than if we go to a formal interview at companies. The interviewer also gives us a lot of career advices,” said Vu Thuy Duong, a senior at Banking Academy.
Duong said she knew people who were hired at the fair. Vietcombank and VietinBank are the hottest banks among the students, many of whom say they know that a banking job means long hours but that the good pay makes up for it.
“Over the last few years we have recruited many graduates of Banking Academy. It shows that the quality of the school’s programmes has been increasing,” said Nguyen Danh Luong, member of the board of directors cum deputy general director of Vietcombank, a diamond sponsor of the event, besides VietinBank and Agribank.
The fair, which aims to connect students with employers, saw the participation of students of Banking Academy but also business students from many schools in Hanoi including Academy of Finance, National Economics University, Foreign Trade University, University of Economics and Business-Vietnam National University.
