The event will provide information on occupational training, consultation services on career opportunities and assessments on potential employment for job seekers to assist them in finding jobs.
“We provide a platform for the job seekers to find employment information and give them the opportunity so they can expand their networks in order to gain employment opportunities in the job market,” Mr. Chan said.
The hospitality service industry offers the largest number of job vacancies compared to other industries in the city, Mr. Chan added.
The participating companies and organizations are from the tourism, education, aviation, real estate, telecommunication, insurance, gaming, hotel, technology, property management, food and beverage, trading, retail and design sectors.
