Many students graduate each year with the hopes of getting jobs yet too often the most qualified miss out on employment opportunities because of poorly written resumes and poor performance at interviews. It’s in this regard that we organize an annual all university career fair aimed at helping job seekers find out how to target their resume and maximize interest in their cover letter by articulating their skills and accomplishments.

The FISA all university career fair is the premier education, training and employment exhibition in the University of Nairobi. Held since 2009, the expo has been the leading platform for organizations to present career pathways and further education opportunities – not only to students and school leavers but also to members of the community who wish to increase their skills or employment prospects.

The event involves panel and interactive discussions that focus on various fields of interest. It is designed to provide students with an opportunity to connect with employers, gain insight into areas of interest to them and get advice from professionals currently working in the field

The friendly yet formal character of the event provides a welcome and unique environment for employers, career advisors, education and training providers to communicate directly with job seekers and students.
