ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) is hosting a mega virtual Careers Fair on June 16 to connect talented students and professionals with country’s top employers.
Building on last year’s successful inaugural event, this year’s fair will be even bigger and better. The job fair will be attended by over 130 leading brands from across Pakistan that are coming to recruit for over 600 job opportunities.

Coming with an exciting mix of rewarding career opportunities, some of the big names joining the employment fair include AF Ferguson, HBL, K-Electric, KPITB, KPMG, Meezan Bank, Mobilink Microfinance Bank, Nestlé Pakistan, Packages Limited, PTCL, S&P Global, Telenor Global Shared Services, Ufone, Unilever Pakistan, and Zameen.com.
