40,000 jobs on offer at BN Youth Job Fair on Friday

KUALA LUMPUR: Some 40,000 jobs will be up for grabs at the BN Youth Job Fair this coming Friday, said its secretariat chairman Nazir Hussin Akhtar Husin.

“Some 350 companies will be participating in the fair, which will see 40,000 jobs being offered during the three-day event,” he said, after flagging off the BN Youth Job Fair big bikers’ promotion campaign here yesterday.

He said this was the 11th time that the fair was being held since it was first organised by Barisan Nasional Youth three years ago.

“Since it was first held, some 160,000 youths have managed to find employment through the job fair,” he said.

Nazir Hussin said, during the fair, there would also be talks held on the role of online social media on the job market with 50 companies providing online business opportunities.

“This job fair is not only about offering employment to young graduates but it also gives them an opportunity to learn what the Government has done for them,” he said.

Some 1,000 internships with government-linked companies and multi-national firms would also be offered to bumiputra graduates via the Bumiputra Agenda Action Council, he added.
