     The Labour Department (LD) will hold a large-scale job fair at Lok Fu Place on October 3 and 4. Vacancies in property management, catering, retail and other industries will be offered.
     With the theme of "Middle-aged and Elderly Employment", the job fair aims to promote employment opportunities for mature job seekers. A total of 28 organisations offering over 2 200 vacancies will participate in the two-day fair. Fourteen organisations will set up booths and conduct on-the-spot recruitments each day. The vacancies offered cover a wide variety of positions including that of clerk, aviation security officer, petrol station operator, health worker, receptionist, security guard, driver, waiter/waitress, beverage assistant, chef, technician, sales associate, cashier and cleaner. Job seekers can find more information on the LD's Interactive Employment Service website (www.jobs.gov.hk).
     Around 77 per cent of the vacancies are full-time jobs. Most vacancies offer monthly salaries ranging from $10,000 to $17,000. About 99 per cent of the vacancies require a Secondary Six education level or below. Around 78 per cent are open to job seekers without relevant work 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 services provided by the LD at its counter at the venue.
