‘NEA has helped 5,464 people get jobs’

The National Employment Agency (NEA) has so far this year helped 5,464 people to get jobs. It has also sent the applications of 22,854 others to potential employers for review.

Speaking during a conference on the agency’s accomplishment and its 2019 goal on Friday, NEA head Hong Choeun said it will make greater efforts to find more job opportunities for Cambodians.

“The smiles of job seekers and their families after they got job offers … it’s a great encouragement for all of us."

“The provision of service for job seekers is the main priority of the government, which intends to provide equal job opportunities, especially for youths, in a transparent manner,” he said to NEA officials from 11 provinces.

Aiming to provide services for job seekers more effectively, Choeun said the NEA has regularly provided training on leadership for its officials and held public job expos in partnership with the private sector.

“Our vision is to transform it into a leading agency that provides job service in a quality manner in Cambodia so that all job-seeking citizens throughout the country can get information about jobs in various fields."

“NEA officials assist them as much as they can to get them a job and desirable income,” he said.

According to the NEA’s report, it has also registered 15,485 job seekers through its website, collected job announcements for 83,466 positions and provided information via phone to 35,295 job seekers.

NEA provides job services for free via its website and centres in Phnom Penh and provinces such as Battambang, Siem Reap, Kampot, Svay Rieng, Takeo, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, Prey Veng, Banteay Meanchey and Preah Sihanouk.
