Kyiv Post - - Business - BY NI­COLE STEIN­BERG NAS88@GE­ORGE­TOWN.EDU

Nearly three dozen lead­ing com­pa­nies in Ukraine will par­tic­i­pate in the Kyiv Post Em­ploy­ment Fair on Sept. 16 as they look to hire the best and bright­est among job seek­ers.

At­ten­dees will also be able to speak with ex­perts for ca­reer advice, gain tips on how to write a CV and en­gag­ing cover let­ter and nail job in­ter­views — im­por­tant steps to building a suc­cess­ful and worth­while ca­reer.

The fair is a bian­nual re­cruit­ing event with a 12-year track record in ca­reer match­mak­ing. It will take place at Olympic Sta­dium at 55 Ve­lyka Va­sylkivska St. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. En­try costs Hr 25.

This au­tumn’s fair features 35 com­pa­nies. Ten com­pa­nies are new to the ranks: Run­way, Tick­ets UA, MGID, iCredit, Bau­chemie, Evo.company, KT Ukraine, Bino­tel, 3 Shape, and Reckitt Benckiser.

The fair pro­vides a valu­able op­por­tu­nity for prospec­tive em­ploy­ees and em­ploy­ers to meet.

Anasat­sia Koshalko, head of HR EVO.company, an e-com­merce company, em­pha­sizes the fair’s abil­ity to con­nect em­ploy­ers and job seek­ers in a unique way. “This ca­reer fair gives us the chance to be trans­par­ent, to step out­side the lim­its of e-mail, and speak ca­su­ally with prospec­tive col­leagues,” Koshalko said.

Ivanna Du­dar, head of HR at Tick­ets UA, be­lieves the fair matches high qual­ity peo­ple with high qual­ity em­ploy­ers, with Kyiv Post as the in­ter­me­di­ary. “I know those who read the Kyiv Post will en­joy work­ing for us,” Du­dar said.

Apart from talk­ing to rep­re­sen­ta­tives of top com­pa­nies, par­tic­i­pants can at­tend lec­tures by out­stand­ing speak­ers.

Maksym Bakhma­tov, head of UNIT.City — a project that aims to com­bine in­no­va­tion, ed­u­ca­tion, busi­ness, and ur­ban de­vel­op­ment — will speak about his work and how young peo­ple can take ad­van­tage of the present job mar­ket.

“Young peo­ple must find ex­pe­ri­ence through real work, not virtu- al,” the UNIT.City man­ag­ing part­ner ad­vises.

Another speaker is An­driy Fe­doriv, a lead­ing name in mar­ket­ing in Ukraine. In ad­di­tion to his own company, FE­DORIV, the N.1 Ukrainian brand­ing agency, Fe­doriv is also the chair­man of the All-Ukrainian Ad­ver­tis­ing Coali­tion. Fe­doriv will dis­cuss his own bi­og­ra­phy, his company, the sit­u­a­tion in mar­ket­ing and fu­ture trends.

In ad­di­tion to busi­ness sem­i­nars, Eterna Law, a top law firm, will give a sem­i­nar for prospec­tive lawyers.
