ELJ Job Fair Testimonials
Firstly we want to thank all those who participated and helped make our first ELJ Multilingual Job Fair; which took place on Saturday, 5th of October at the conference room of the Hotel Catalonia Plaza, a success.
We were extremely pleased with the feedback we received from both Employers and Candidates. We have already begun planning our next Job Fair to be held next year.
We met three candidates who flew in from Belgium just for the job fair and here is what they had to say;
The Europe Language Job Fair was a nice opportunity to get in touch with different companies and recruiters. We, as Belgians, speak a lot of languages (English, Dutch, French, and German). That's why some recruiters were interested in our capacities. We dropped our CV in order to get in contact with different companies. The event was well organized and with an overview, we got at the entrance we could find the right companies. A lot of people were present at the fair, so congratulations to Kim Stenger for organizing the event. - Doreen De Cordt, Aïcha Naesen, and Danuta Peeters - Belgium
