Labour ministry announces largest job fair of the year

The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training will hold a two-day National Career and Productivity Fair on October 28-29 at the Koh Pich Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In an August 12 notice, the ministry said the career fair will be held in collaboration with the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia in Phnom Penh and the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia, and with the support of the International Labour Organization.

The notice said that the largest career event of 2022 will be held to create a platform for gathering a large number of job opportunities in one place, making it easy for employers, job-seekers and training providers to watch online everywhere across the country.

“Employers can advertise their recruitment requirements and attract skilled, capable and potential job seekers in line with those requirements. Job seekers can apply and interview in person and online, as well as receive information on job opportunities and skills development opportunities,” said the notice.

Another purpose of the fair is to enable education and training providers to advertise curriculums, courses and skill development programmes of all kinds. It will raise awareness of the value of education, cultivate the idea of increasing productivity through workshops, share knowledge and experiences, and create a platform for expansion of human resource networking.
