Skills gap explained in conference series

The Cambodian Federation of Employers and Business Associations (CAMFEBA) is conducting a series of conferences across the country to educate students and universities about opportunities in the labour market.

The series presents information from a CAMFEBA report released last year about the gap between the skills possessed by Cambodia's graduates and those needed by employers.

CAMFEBA president Van Sou Ieng said it was a good time to remind people of the report's findings because the tightened job market made it critical for graduates to ensure they looked for jobs armed with the right skills.

"It is true that the job market is tougher than ever during the crisis and it will become a little more difficult to find a job over the coming months, but it is very important that you remain positive, productive, and creative to find employment," he told National University of Management students  Wednesday.

Oum Vann Manith, a second year student at the university said the information contained in the report - Youth and employment: Bridging the Gap - would be useful for students planning their course of study.

The conference series, which was launched at Norton University, will visit Pannasastra University of Cambodia next Thursday and then be held around the provinces.
