The Annual Vientiane Career & Education Fair started as a Class project in the Business Degree Program at the Lao-American College in the Spring of 2011 with 50 students and 2 staff members.
The objective was to organize a job-fair to bridge the communication gap between students & companies; for students to express ambitions and for companies to explain career paths and opportunities.
It was a great success with 25 companies representing a cross section of the Lao private sector and attracting about 1000 visitors. Companies were delighted to use this event also as a business exhibition and it soon expanded from a 1 day event to a 2 day “show” with more companies, NGO’s, Schools offering Master degrees, Scholarships, free Workshops and English tests.
In 2017 we created a logo “Jobs For All” together with Lao Disabled Peoples Association in order to boost people with disabilities into the main-stream of job seekers and job providers.
Now in its 9th Year, it will be bigger and better having more Companies, Educational Establishments and NGOs offering young people of all backgrounds Jobs, Internships, Vocational Training and further Education opportunities.
We offer also free for everyone English Testing, Workshops and help in making CVs.
The Annual Vientiane Career & Education Fair is organized by volunteer staff members and students from Lao-American College and AIESEC. It is a self-financing social enterprise with no subsidies from NGO’s or Governments, depending solely on sponsors renting booths to finance its operations.
