About 7 400 vacancies on offer at Mong Kok Job Expo
     The Labour Department (LD) will hold the Mong Kok Job Expo at MacPherson Stadium in Mong Kok on March 18 and 19.
     With the theme "Building a Multi-culture Workplace", the expo aims to provide a convenient platform for job seekers, in particular those from ethnic minorities, to explore more employment opportunities; and to promote their awareness of the LD's employment services.
     A total of 101 organisations will participate in the two-day expo. Forty-six employers will set up counters and conduct on-the-spot recruitment each day. They mainly come from catering, property management and retail industries, offering about 7 400 vacancies for job seekers of all cultural backgrounds.
     In addition, nine training organisations will provide information on training courses for job seekers. Employment services of the LD and job openings that are suitable for people from ethnic minorities will be introduced in a mini-exhibition. Simultaneous interpretation for Hindi, Urdu and Nepali speakers will also be provided.
     The vacancies offered by participating employers cover a wide variety of positions including building diagnostic testing helper, laboratory chemist trainee, auto detailing trainee, aircraft maintenance mechanic trainee, clinic assistant, job coach, personal trainer, receptionist, shop assistant, clerk, security guard, driver, storekeeper, technician, cashier, barista, cook and waiter/waitress. Job seekers can find more information on the LD's Interactive Employment Service website (www.jobs.gov.hk).
     Around 74 per cent of the vacancies offered in the expo are full-time jobs, and most vacancies offer monthly salaries ranging from $9,000 to $18,000. Over 99 per cent of the vacancies require a Secondary Six education level or below. Around 74 per cent are open to job seekers without relevant experience.
     Job seekers can submit applications on the spot and may be selected for on-site interviews. They can also make enquiries on the employment programmes and services provided by the LD at its counter at the venue.
     The expo will be held from 11am to 5.30pm at MacPherson Stadium, 1/F, 38 Nelson Street, Mong Kok (near Mong Kok MTR Station Exit E2). Admission is free.
