Hear from the Experts
There will be a number of panel sessions showcasing some of the hottest business experts in the Villa, providing practical advice which will help you strengthen your CV and job applications, develop your professional skills through learning about the further education opportunities available in the Island and stay motivated, whether that is with your studies, your career development or the launch of your own business venture.
"We were impressed with the initiative, the format and the organisation. From speaking with the graduates attending it is clear that there is a desire from some to move back to the Island following their degrees. The fair helps them to identify the opportunities available and puts them in touch with employers such as ourselves who see graduates as a way, with appropriate further training and coaching, of filling the management and technical vacancies that we have.”
"Great to have an event like this as I’ve never felt communicated with about opportunities in the Isle of Man before. Really fun event!”
