Job market competition

111123_03

Due to the fact that our editor, Pivione Beang, is taking materity leave for 3 months, I will take over her role in that time. However, I am still producing our progressive information about education, health and other knowlege, with the help of our university reporters who try hard to find the news every week. Here are our content stories of this week.

Today’s young generation – some who have recently graduated and some who are still studying – are increasingly seeking an education, as the number of universities grow from year-to-year in both the cities and provinces.

Many job opportunities await them as business enterprises, factories, companies, state and private institutions as well as NGOs are opening their doors to new hires.

However, as the free market expands, these jobs require certain abilities and skills. Now, young Cambodians are not only competing among each other for these positions, but also with  expats.

For Cambodian youth who have difficulty finding a job that suits their studies and goals, www.nea.gov.kh is a free-of-charge government service to facilitate their needs.

Struggling in life and specific goal settings, even though he was born in a poor family, the youth of the week is a poor student working for an NGO.

In this week’s issue of LIFT, we show you the opinions of other young Cambodians about the advantages and disadvantages of working a job while still studing in university.

Also, we introduce you to a young man with competent business skills who controls a garage in Phnom Penh, working as a manager.

For our Whats New? page, we take a look at how some are making a career while staying at home by fixing software remotely through the ease of the internet.

LIFT always welcomes readers who are interested in sharing their views with us. Please send us your comments or feedback via lift@phnompenhpost.com.
Thanks.
