There was a great representation of the corporate sector at the Job Fair, and it was wonderful to see so many different industries and sectors represented with companies such as Keells Super, Union Bank of Colombo PLC, Coca-Cola Beverages Sri Lanka, Asia Bike Industrial Limited, Triumph International Lanka, Gajamuthu Foods (Pvt) Ltd, Asiri Group of Hospitals, Aegis Services Lanka Pvt Ltd, Southern Spars International (Pvt) Ltd, HNB Assurance PLC, Goliath Holdings (Pvt) Ltd, Domino’s Sri Lanka and Intelligent Image Management Lanka (Pvt) Ltd.

“We are more than confident that we can help attract the right candidates for the job. Your job advert is not only viewed by over 30,000 registered candidates and over 70,000 jobseekers on our social media groups, we also facilitate their interviews and help them to present themselves to the right sectors. This kind of support helps them so much when it comes to facing interviews and gives many of them opportunities to work for good companies that they might not have had otherwise.” stated Dr. Oshadie Korale.
