Learn from established entrepreneurs, businessmen, social media influencers, and more about starting and maintaining a career in this day and age.
Knowing what you want to do in life is never easy. For some, it’s a choice that they have known of since they were young. For others, it’s something that they are still trying to figure out even when they are in their 30s and 40s. There are so many things that you can possibly do in your life and you also have to take into account a laundry list worth of considerations.
This is something a lot of fresh graduates, students, and Gen Z can relate to all too well, the feeling that you are lost in your life or have that gut feeling that what you are doing now is not what you are meant for. In regular times, finding your career isn’t a walk in the park, but when you include a world-changing pandemic, that choice has become even harder.
If you think you’re stuck in your life, don’t know what to do with your career, or just feel lost and confused in a time like this, NYLON Manila has got you covered. As the voice of the youth, we know you guys don’t have the easiest time when it comes to starting and establishing a career (we here at NYLON also went through that, too). This is why we are introducing the NYLON Manila Career Fair, a one-day virtual event held via Zoom on August 6, 2021, filled with talks and workshops to give you the lowdown on how to find a career, knowing what’s right for you, and more. And the best part is that the event is free to register and enter for all who want to, no payments required. Here is a rundown of the career fair’s events.
