KUALA LUMPUR: Due to overwhelming demand, JobStreet Malaysia’s Virtual Career Fair (VCF) returns with more enthusiasm from October 14-16 – with the introduction of new career tools and features – available to job seekers before and during the event.
The next VCF follows the successful JobStreet career and training fair in Malaysia in July, which was held virtually and attended by 500,000 job seekers.
JobStreet Managing Director Vic Sithasanan said the upcoming VCF will aim to help job seekers secure their careers with in-demand roles and connect them with employers looking to boost their organization’s growth by hiring at VCF.
“The job market is on the road to recovery as the economy begins to gradually open up again thanks to the national immunization program,” Vic said. “As such, we are seeing a much greater demand on both sides: job seekers looking for work and organizations looking to build strong and resilient teams. “
The event will focus on four key areas of specialization: manufacturing, sales and marketing, business development and IT. There will also be live interactions and onsite interviews with participating employers, live webinars with career coaches, and early access to career tools to prepare for the career fair.
Innovative – but practical – features have also been incorporated for the virtual event.
They include the integration of career tools such as an artificial intelligence (AI) CV generator, an interview practice tool, a cover letter generator and a salary calculator.
Malaysia’s Department of Statistics (DOSM) also recently reported that the recovery in the labor market has been supported by more operations of economic and social activities, especially since the start of the second quarter of 2021.
Known for enabling “jobs that matter” and with more than 40,000 online job postings per month, JobStreet said thousands of jobs would be offered at the virtual career fair in various industries across Malaysia. Drawing on 20 years of experience in the career fairs industry, VCF continues the rich tradition of a one-stop-shop for job seekers.
“It is important to note that the VCF is about how Malaysians can improve their careers for the future, while also serving as a springboard for job creation,” said Vic.
“It also sums up the roles in demand due to the rapidly changing world of work, and how job seekers can better sustain their careers with those roles that have been ‘reimagined’ due to digitization,” a- he added, adding that it is imperative for job seekers to adapt and retrain due to the changes resulting from the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
“It is JobStreet’s intention to also play our role in rebuilding the Malaysian economy,” said Vic. “We encourage job seekers to register with the VCF and share their updated CVs with us so that employers can find them using our talent search service. “
As the VCF approaches October 14-16, job seekers and anyone interested in developing their career are invited to pre-register at: www.jobstreet.com.my/vcf.
