The annual Job Fair for International Students, hosted by the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (Kotra), will be held on August 27 and 28.  
 
The job fair will be held at COEX in Gangam District, southern Seoul, the same venue as last year.  
 
 
The annual Global Talent Fair is divided into three sections: Job Fair for International Students, Job Fair for Foreign Invested Companies and Job Fair for Overseas Employment.  
 
International students can sign up for the Job Fair for International Students and meet HR managers from companies that want to hire foreigners and sit in on-site job interviews.  
 
During last year’s job fair, 382 companies attended the event. A total of 100 were Korean companies that were hoping to hire international students.  
 
Those who wish to get interviewed by attending companies can upload their resumes to the job fair’s website, with only those chosen by the companies able to schedule an interview. However, other attendees can freely go about the booths and meet company officials.  
 
The job fair’s official website is currently not open but will be four months before the event. Sign-up for the job fair will also be done on the official website.
