FAQ

RISE is a Job Fair curated by APG Learning to try and bridge the employment gap between the job aspirants and employers. This was launched in February 2019 and had its first edition for the job seekers in the Information Technology and Information Technology Enabled Services sector on February 28, 2019 at AISSMS IOIT College, Pune.

Who can participate in this Job Fair?

Job seekers who have received their degrees in 2017-18 or appeared for exams in 2018-19. However, if Job Descriptions (uploaded on this page) have requirement for experienced candidates, senior professionals can apply too.

What is the qualification expected from the candidates?

Diploma, Graduation, Post Graduation, MBA, CA – Intermediate, ICWA and others. A few vacancies require HSc pass students as well.

What should be my preparation for participating in the Job Fair?
  • Register on our website – on this page itself.
  • Keep visiting the page to know of the companies that will keep coming on board and the JDs they share of their requirements. Many have already been uploaded.
  • Shortlist the JDs for which you are best suited.
  • Shortlist your choice of companies.
  • Prepare your own list of which companies and JDs you wish to go to.
  • Do research on the company you will be visiting – employers always respect the candidates who have done their research
  • Be thorough with the JDs you are applying for as the employers can ask you why you think you are best suited for the job.

Note: If you think you need to be better prepared in fielding interview questions and writing resumes, you can register for our customized courses on this site. We can train and prepare you for your interview.

What all should I carry with me for the Job Fair?

We would advise make a file/folder of the documents you carry. You can even have a plastic folder. It comes at a very reasonable rate at the stationery shops. Carrying your resumes meticulously placed in a folder always leaves a good impression. It also does not leave folds and creases on your resume copy.

Carry at least ten copies of your resumes each day. It will help if you can carry minimum two passport size photographs. Will be better if you carry four. Carry a pen with your folder. And a small notepad. If you have your own visiting cards, will be good to carry them.

Never depend on your memory. You can jot down the important points or questions of the interview.

Is it mandatory to register?

Yes. Registration is compulsory for the Job Fair. The registered candidates will be given preference at the Job Fair.

What if I register and do not make it to the interview?

Nothing will happen to your application if you do not come for the interview. But you will miss out on a chance to be interviewed by many top companies coming at a single venue. You will miss out on the chance to approach them so easily. This is a rare opportunity to get so many companies of so many domains under one roof. It otherwise takes months to find out the right HR person to apply to.

Is there a registration fee?

No, the registration free as APG Learning wants to extend a helping hand to thousands of students / candidates who are looking for jobs. We do not wish to charge you for taking the first step towards building your career.

Can candidates who are not students (2017-18 pass outs or appeared for 2018-19) apply?

We will not stop them. We had a few experienced candidates in our first edition of RISE, who were in serious need of a job and walked out with a job on Feb 28, 2019. If there is an urgent need, APG Learning is there to help. Such candidates too can take refresher courses at APG Learning.

Can CA candidates who are still studying in first or second year apply for jobs too through RISE Mega Job Fair ?

Those who will go back to studying the coming academic year may find it difficult to continue with the job and the studies simultaneously. However, it will depend on the course you are pursuing and the job you are being offered. Choose wisely.

What salary packages can we expect?

Each company will have its packages based on its requirement and job category. They will share that with you individually.

Do we need to adhere to a dress code for the Job Fair?

We would advise formal wear. Remember your first impression on our interviewee will be your appearance. That will reflect the seriousness you grant to your interview. We would go ahead and say please see that your shows are polished too.

What process do I need to follow to participate in the Job Fair?
  • Register on the website: fill up the columns of the form carefully.
  • Collect your ID.
  • Visit the venue on May 3 and 4 not later than 8.30 am. (Should you need to collect your ID at the venue, reach by 8 am).

It takes some time for the lists to reach the organisers for putting up at the venue. Please wait for it.

Tips to Job Aspirants

  • Always draft a Cover Letter according to the role you are applying for. Mention skills that are relevant to the job.
  • Your Cover Letter must go beyond your resume. It must give an insight into the person and professional you are. So do not write what you have already written in your resume. If you like challenges, mention that. If you excel at analysis, say that. If your communication skills are your strength, it has to go in your Cover Letter.
  • Do not write your life’s story. Nobody has that patience. Keep it crisp. Say the most important things.
  • Do not plead for a job. Do not show desperation. In the same manner, do not show over-confidence too.
  • Do not be too casual. Do not try to get too friendly with the potential employer. Words like Hey, cheers, Ciao are a strict no-no. Maintain professionalism. If you get selected, there will be plenty of time to break the ice and get friendly.
  • Sometimes employers run the Cover Letter through a shortlisting software. So, mention the right keywords needed for the job so that it gets picked up. Do some research on proper keyword usage.
  • End confidently saying why you are the right candidate for the job. Then let them move over to your resume and decide.
  • Check if you have the relevant skills and experience asked in it
  • Read resumes online to understand. Choose the one that comes closest to your employment scenario, and will help you accentuate your strengths and accomplishments. Develop your own style of writing on those lines.
  • There are plenty of professional templates available online. Choose the one that suits your requirement the most.
  • Keep it simple. Do not use jazzy fonts, too many colours and various jarring styles. Subtle one or two colours can suffice to highlight the parts you want to.
  • If your language skills are not exceptionally good, keep it simple. Nobody is looking for an author unless and until the recruiter is looking specifically for one.
  • Check, recheck and re-recheck your spellings, grammar and information. Wrong language skills, even if you are not applying for a language-related job, will go against you.
  • If you are not confident of your writing skills or are getting stuck or confused, do not let that affect you. Do not lose hope. It happens with the most experienced people. You can use the services of resume-writing companies. That will always be a good investment.
  • Always write your full name and contact details which must include your telephone number, email id and complete. If you will be available only on your mobile and not a landline number, please specify that.
  • Links: Now-a-days most of the talent recruiters are on social media websites. You can always give link to your profile on LinkedIn or any other professional website you are on.
  • You can write a brief summary about you. Brief means brief. Include your most important and relevant skills or accomplishments in the beginning.
  • Some begin with the latest experience. But that is for experienced professionals.
  • Use keywords that have been used in the JD to mention your skills.
  • Keep it short but not so short that the employer finds no meat in your resume. Keeping it short advice for resumes always means do not cram it with long explanations and stories. Be crisp. Punch in substance and meaning in less space and few words.
  • Every Job you apply for must have a customized resume. The employer will always understand if it is a cut-paste job or you have taken the effort to write according to the JD he/she shared.
  • Never, never copy sentences from the internet on to your resume. That is the biggest mistake you can make. Be original. Be yourself. Seek help from friends, family, teachers or professionals, but do not copy from the internet. Remember, it is machine that will often screen your resume first. Do not pit one machine against the other.
  • If you have an accomplishment that can add value to your resume as an attachment, you can do so but first, ask yourself: Is it really needed at this stage? There are situations attachments will not be appreciated. You will be able to judge if it is needed or not if you read the JD a few times and understand it well. Do not overdo it.
  • Remember, your resume is your first introduction to your employer. If you do not engage him/ her with the first few lines, he/ she will not read further. Focus on that engagement.
In general:
  • A clean appearance is the pre requisite for a meeting. Always. Make sure the first look an interviewer gets is that of a hygienic appearance. Remember a good appearance will exhibit the seriousness you give to your job and the level of professionalism you promise to bring to the table.
  • Men should have a proper hair-cut and brush their hair before going for the interview. Women should be careful that their hair is either brushed properly, or tied properly. Since women might leave it open or sport different styles, care should be taken that it doesn’t look messed up.
  • If your skin is too oily, carry facial tissues and use them. Will also help to use a little compact on your face to manage that.
  • For women, it is important not to sport heavy make-up. Impress the interviewer with your qualification, talent and intelligence. A heavily made-up face will give the impression your focus is not work and that you aren’t being serious about academic or professional task at hand. Leave the heavy make-up to later times. But yes, slight make-up that makes you feel confident is welcome.
  • Clip your nails. Always, always clip your nails before you head for anything important. See that your nails do not have dirt lodged in them. And women should be careful that if they have applied nail varnish, it isn’t chipped before they head for an interview. Either well varnished nails or no varnish at all. Men: Strictly, no nail enamel. No, not even in that last finger and no grown nail. Again, not even of that little finger you are so proud of.
  • Smell good. Do not use strong perfumes that might put off people. Try and invest in a good perfume. If you are not able to buy one, no problem. Do not fret. Just choose a good deodorant that doesn’t smell strong. Carry it with you. Use it about 20 minutes before you head in so that it doesn’t leave a string smell. Those who have strong body odours (you surely know if you do), better use sprinkle some talcum powder in your armpits and body. Again, not too much but it will arrest the problem. These are all simple tips your parents gave you earlier, when you were growing up. Try and remember them.
  • Do not eat raw onion or garlic before you leave for an interview. You may feel comfortable but the person you will certainly not.
  • No chewing gum in your mouth when you enter.
  • Fresh breath is important. Brush your teeth. Clean your tongue. Keep mint handy. Use it a few minutes before going in. Stay hydrated.
  • Wear your smile. With confidence. That is the best asset to carry.
Dressing Tips

Do not wear loud colours like neon shades or screaming hues. Wear any colour or print you are comfortable in. Do not wear something because that is the in-thing to do. Wear what makes you feel comfortable and is convenient. You are not going to a fashion show.

For men
  • While it is debatable which interviews you must wear a suit or a blazer with your trousers and shirt to, it is always advisable to wear well-ironed shirt and trousers. Just see that they aren’t torn or the button is not out. Never use a safety pin to put it together if your shirt has lost a button. That is a dressing crime. Invest a few minutes and stitch the button in.
  • If you have a blazer/ formal jacket and feel comfortable in it, then wear it. The bottom-line is: Comfort.
  • You can always throw in a tie, whether you wear the blazer or suit or not. But then, either learn to tie a tie, or, seek someone’s help who knows to do it. But if you are wearing a tie that hasn’t been tied well, we would advise: drop it. It is better not to sport it than to look ridiculous.
  • Strictly no half pants.
  • Strictly no T shirts.
  • Strictly no jeans.
  • Polish your shoes. Never ignore that.
  • Wear clean socks. That is a rule. Never wear unwashed socks. They will let you down when you nearly got your dream job.
  • Strictly no sneakers or sports shoes.
For women
  • Wear smart. There are many choices for you: shirt-trousers, shirt-trousers-blazer/ formal jacket, salwar-kurta, churidar-kurta, skirt-top, and sari-blouse. Just wear what you are comfortable in. And let it be decent.
  • Try and avoid loud colours. They dent your serious approach.
  • While there are extremely attractive dresses with stylish designs and patterns available in the stores today, try to keep those out that scream for attention.
  • While no safety pins is a rule, you know when and how to use one effectively where essential. If you are wearing a dress with dupatta or stole and it does not stay in place, then go ahead, pin it up wisely so that it does not distract you.
  • Take care that your feet is not cracked. If you suffer from that problem, wear a salwar-kurta or long skirt and top.
  • Use cream on your feet before leaving home so that it looks hydrated.
  • You can use a decent hue of a nail enamel. Avoid loud colours.
  • Wear comfortable footwear that makes you feel confident. Avoid pencil heels as you might have to walk from one place to another and might have to wait for your interview. Pencil heels/ stilettos tend to lead to acute pain after a while, which will not allow you to focus on the interview. Moreover, pencil heels tend to distract. However, if you are comfortable wearing these, then the choice is yours.
  • If you choose to wear shoes or boots, then see that your shoes are polished and if you wear socks, see that they are clean.
  • Strictly no sneakers or sports shoes.
