     With the theme of "Middle-aged and Elderly Employment", the job fair aims to promote employment opportunities for mature job seekers. A total of 72 organisations offering over 4 600 vacancies will participate in the three-day fair. Twenty-four organisations will set up booths and conduct on-the-spot recruitment each day. The vacancies offered cover a wide variety of positions including school executive officer, clerk, health worker, receptionist, security guard, traffic officer, driver, waiter/waitress, chef, technician, sales assistant, cashier and cleaner. Job seekers can find more information on the LD's Interactive Employment Service website (www.jobs.gov.hk).
     Around 73 per cent of the vacancies are full-time jobs. Most vacancies offer monthly salaries ranging from $10,000 to $18,000. About 98 per cent of the vacancies require a Secondary Six education level or below. Around 70 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.
