National Career Fair set for weekend

The 10th National Career and Productivity Fair will be held over two days from November 14 to 15 and will take place in person at the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training as well as online. The goal of the fair it to support the labour market as employers attempt to fill labour demand despite the threats posed by Covid-19.

The ministry said its National Employment Agency (NEA), the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia in Phnom Penh and the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) will organise the event. It said the exhibition will also be offered online to respect social distancing guidelines set by the Ministry of Health.

“The aim of this exhibition is to support relevant parties in the labour market, especially employers who are accelerating labour demand recovery despite the threat of Covid-19. The NEA pays close attention to hygiene and health measures in accordance with the health ministry guidelines,” it said.

According to the ministry, employers and job seekers can visit the career fair’s website at www.careerfair.nea.gov.kh to check recruitment information and post or apply for jobs. The public can also apply directly to companies at the ministry during the fair.

The ministry called on students and job seekers to prepare their CV if they plan on visiting the fair.

The NEA said it hopes that employers and job seekers will continue to support and benefit from this career fair. Everyone must actively participate in promoting the smooth operation of the labour market and prevent the spread of Covid-19, it said.

Sok Nalik, a fourth-year student at the Royal University of Phnom Penh’s Department of Media and Communication, told The Post he was interested in the job fair because he was prepared to enter the workforce.

“I’m very interested because I’m a fourth-year student, so I want to find out about some social work before I graduate. I may apply for a job at an institution when I participate in this career fair because I want to test my ability,” he said.

Naly added that career fair provided a lot of benefits for people, especially freshly graduated students, job seekers and those who are seeking guidance after graduation.

Last year, the 9th National Career and Productivity Fair was attended by 150 enterprises, ministries, government institutions and national and international organisations. At the fair, 300 booths were set up and about 30,000 visitors attended.
