Firms to offer 20,000 vacancies at career and productivity fair

The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training will hold the National Career and Productivity Fair 2019 with two partners at the Koh Pich Exhibition and Convention Centre on November 2-3.

Some 200 local and international companies will take up 30 booths and offer 20,000 vacancies to fresh graduates and job seekers.

This year, the ministry is again co-organising the career fair with the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia and the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia.

At a press conference on Monday, the ministry’s National Employment Agency director Hay Hunleng said: “We estimate most job opportunities to be from the banking, microfinance, construction, hotels and reception, telecommunication, technical education, as well as training and manufacturing sectors.

Hunleng said besides the job opportunities, participants will receive information on planning, human resource requirements and policy, study programmes, scholarships, and skills development programmes.

At the event, a workshop on productivity will be held. The workshop aims to raise awareness on productivity, give tips on improving work performance, as well as feature skills and technical tools in line with the technology development of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0).

Sam Monorom, president of the secretariat of the UYFC, said that the two-day workshop would bring together well-known national and international guest speakers to share knowledge, experience and good practices.

“To receive good job opportunities and raise awareness on improving productivity, all youths, students, job seekers and employees, please prepare your CVs to attend the fair and workshop,” he added.

At the press conference, a PPC Bank representative who only gave her name as Sopheak said she expects to recruit competent employees in the career fair.

She thinks PPC Bank’s booth will receive between 300 and 400 visitors and job applicants due to a more interesting design of her programme.

“Job seekers and fresh graduates should be ready with their CVs, and pick the company and job that suits them best because it is an opportunity to launch their careers,” she said.

The ministry said the career fair is expected to have more than 30,000 visitors, mostly students, youths, job seekers and employees from all sectors.
