Many third and fourth-year students are still ignorant of staff recruitment procedures at businesses, heard a talk between students and recruiters over the weekend.
The students of economics, accounting and finance asked questions revealing their inexperience in self promoting to the banking and consumer product manufacturing recruiters at the meeting.
Last Friday, fifteen companies came to the University of Economics to meet and recruit candidates for their vacant positions.
Questions about recruitment procedures occupied a large portion of the meeting.
Most of the students seemed unaware of how to make a resume attractive enough for an interview and how to behave themselves in an interview.
“My study record is not very good, so how can I gain an edge over the other candidates?” a student asked, adding that he and many of his fellows are dynamic and competent but without an impressive record.
Phung Tu Thy, recruitment manager at Nestle Vietnam, answered by listing ambition and career plan as the qualities she looks for at a candidate.
The meeting and career day is an annual event that the university has held for the past ten-years.
