KUALA LUMPUR: Jobseekers can now flock to several train stops that are used as venues for a three-day career carnival.
The National Career Day “Train Ride” and Travel Career 2016 aims to help employers from government-linked and private companies seek qualified and potential workforce.
It is organised by the Human Resources Ministry with collaboration from KTMB. It was launched yesterday.
“At the event, 350 employers will be offering about 15,000 jobs,” said Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot.
The four stations are the Kuala Lumpur old railway station and Ipoh (Perak) on Aug 19, Arau (Perlis) on Aug 20 and Sungai Petani (Kedah) on Aug 21.
At each of these stations, there are career fairs and exhibitions related to the role and functions of departments and agencies under the ministry.
The target groups are students from higher learning institutions and training centres, school-leavers, students, retrenched workers, employees who want to enhance their career, the disabled, homeless and former convicts.
For states with no train facilities, open interview sessions will take place at their respective Labour Offices and JobsMalaysia Centres on the same dates.
