Human Resources managers of companies and students came together, made job interviews at the “Career Fair” that was organized for the first time in Izmir at Izmir University of Economics. As the students submitted their resumes to national and international companies, they conducted their first job interviews.
Pelin Süzen, Assistant Specialist at IUE Career Guidance Centre, gave information about the fair and said that representatives from 15 companies held one on one interviews with over one thousand 500 students.
