A Step Forward on to the International Stage
To Enhance the Competitiveness of IGC Students
On September 28, the first IGC Job Fair was successfully held at Incheon Global Campus. The fair was sponsored by the Incheon Free Economic Zone (IFEZ) and Yeonsu-gu Office, and jointly hosted by the IGC Foundation universities at IGC, and the Korea Joongang Daily. The majority of participating companies at the fair were global. They dispatched HR and current employees to offer recruitment consulting not only to IGC students but also students of other universities and young job seekers. The Resume Clinic provided more than 300 students the chance to learn how to write an English resume via 1:1 consulting with foreign professors who volunteered their time.
The companies that participated in the job fair were impressed by the passion and English-speaking capability of IGC students, and announced that an overseas business internship selection round designed for IGC students will be open soon. The job fair provided the chance for more than 10% of students to be interviewed on site and be selected as interns. Special lectures on recruitment were also held by a Samsung Electronics executive and the chief editor of the Korea Joongang Daily. They talked about how to prepare for recruiting sessions and write an English cover letter.
PAEK Ki-hoon, the CEO of the IGC Foundation, said, “The first-ever job fair since the opening of IGC was very meaningful. We focused on global companies and international organizations in order for the talented graduates of IGC to get a job at companies suitable for their education levels. We will continue to hold events to help job-seekers in their quest.” The staff at the IGC Foundation said “Although the fair was small, it was very substantial. We will do our best to support our students in their job hunts, with the goal of enabling students to get a job on the global stage.”
