    Question Birmingham Expo this saturday

    Hi all ,

    Me and my husband are thinking of going to the Birmingham Expo this weekend because he works in the IT industry are they alot of IT recruiters there.

    Has anybody from the IT industry been to one of these before, and did you find it informative. Did you get a job offer.


    Kind regards
    Traci.

    Hi

    We attended expo in Manchester which would be a pretty similar set up to Birmmingham, (London is the big one).

    We found it OK as a basic fact finding mission but not so great on getting contacts for jobs. My husband is also in IT. There seemed to be a lot of health care stands when we went.

    You will be able to get info from immigration and banks, shipping companies etc and maybe some recruitment agencies but unless you have set date to arrive in NZ and an area to go to they aren't that intersted in you.

    Just my opinion though
