This weekend, jobseekers can rub shoulders with 100 exhibitors offering a wide variety of PMEB/T positions; plus attend free career coaching, resume writing workshopsSingapore, 3 July 2015 --- Following the success of introducing a free psychometric tool* that was used by more than 500 jobseekers to match fitting jobs to their personalities at the STJobs Express Career Fair earlier this year, STJobs will now also offer this feature to attendees at the upcoming STJobs Career and Development Fair. Ninety per cent of those who gave their feedback on the test commented that the profiling was "very accurate", Other than this complimentary service, prospects can also pre-register for a slew of no-charge offerings such as makeovers, photo shoots, career consultation by professional coaches and CV clinics. STJobs believes these additional offerings serve to help jobseekers develop their careers, leverage on their expertise and stay competitive.Mr Julian Tan, Head of Digital Division at Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), said, “The employment landscape is ever changing. Many reports and surveys in recent years have cited widespread restructuring and a tightening labour market as obstacles to recruiting good talent. While employers need to be creative in the ways they recruit the right talent, employees too need to continually equip themselves with the right skills, in order to achieve the career progression that they aspire for. This is precisely the reason STJobs continues to organise the career fair. We help to bridge the gap between hirers and jobseekers by serving as a platform for both parties to meet and mingle.”Peripheral offerings aside, visitors can meet face-to-face with prospective civil service, MNC and established local hirers from myriad industries such as Finance, IT, F&B, Retail, Education etc. to check out immediate openings available while updating and submitting their resumes online. Some choice employers include Republic of Singapore Navy, DBS Bank Limited, SIM and Gardens by the Bay, just to name a few.
