Speed dating with your potential employer

The Career Fair aims to provide a neutral, informal platform for engagement for young professionals to have an open dialogue in a speed dating format, with representatives of various companies in the water sector. Employers will be seated, with young professionals having only two minutes to engage with each other before moving to the next employer signaled by a bell. Employers will be provided with a set of questions to guide the two minute dialogue. ‘Speed dating’ will take place in two rounds, with an intermission in between and closing remarks.
