They are preparing for the job fair of University of Miskolc, and they summarize the experiences of searching for colleagues at a job fair after that.
Szilvia Máthé, the HR project coordinator of the biggest exhibitor from the construction industry, the Market Építő Ltd. was satisfied with the number of the candidates, but she also said that there were many freshmen.

They should dare to ask, and do not afraid of telling which field they are interested in – first, this means that they are in the swim, and over that, the company’s purpose is finding a motivated candidate to a job. And the HR staff used to remember those, who the met in these situations, and a good impression can bring an advantage later.
