ST fair to offer 1,000 jobs

STJobs Career&Development Fair will be held on the 28 and 29 July from 10am to 8pm at Suntec Convention Centre Halls 403 and 404

MORE than 1,000 jobs will be up for grabs at Singapore Press Holdings' STJobs Career and Development Fair this weekend.

Nearly 200 exhibitors from various industries will have booths at the event, which will take place at Suntec Exhibition Halls 403 and 404.

Exhibitors will include employers such as Singapore Airlines, McDonald's, Banyan Tree and government agencies, which will be wooing job seekers ranging from fresh graduates to senior management.

Among the positions available are junior and senior police officer and emergency response specialist in the Singapore Civil Defence Force, as well as other jobs in the Central Narcotics Bureau and the Singapore Prison Service.

The fair will take place from 10am to 8pm, and will be open to everyone tomorrow, but only Singaporeans and permanent residents on Sunday.

This will be the first large-scale event organised by online jobs portal STJobs, previously known as ST701 Jobs, which was revamped and officially relaunched last month.

This weekend's fair, which will have a carnival-like atmosphere, will be divided into four zones.

The first will feature the employers' booths, and the second will offer visitors a professional image makeover.

A third zone will feature psychometric testing and a resume clinic, while the fourth will hold career-related seminars.

Mr Johnson Goh, vice-president and head of online classifieds, ST701, said: 'For STJobs' first big-scale event, we have pulled together all resources to offer job seekers, employers and training providers an on-ground platform to congregate, mingle and network.'

A fashion and technology showcase put on by classifieds portal ST Classifieds will also take place this weekend at the adjacent Suntec Exhibition Hall 402.

Exhibitors will include more than 40 established online retailers, up-and-coming local designers and blogshops, offering a variety of activities and promotions.

Admission is free for both events. For more information, see www.stjobs.sg/fair
