We hope you enjoy NUS Career Fest 2021!

Post It Note

The virtual career fair on NUS TalentConnect had a good variety of employers for me to interact with, and allowed me to find out about the various internship and job opportunities. CFG also prepared me well prior to the fair with career preparatory workshops and online resources. — Year 2 Engineering student

"I liked the fact that we were able to communicate with employers via video calls. The system was smooth and was easy to use. Being able to speak to the employers on the 1-on-1 and group video calls allowed me to pitch myself to the employers and stand out."

Year 4 Design and Environment student

"The career preparatory workshops organised ahead of the career fair greatly bridged the gap between university and workplace. They helped me to prepare for the fair and are very valuable for our future development."

Science PhD student

"The panel discussion, held as part of the virtual career fair, helped me to explore different career paths as well as offered useful insights from recruiters on how to get started with my job search. Thank you NUS CFG for organising this session!"
