Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian jobseekers, you are in luck!
This is because the country’s leading employment platform JobStreet has announced that it would be hosting the Malaysia Career and Training Fair (MCTF) virtually from July 6 to 9.
“We are excited to reboot the MCTF as a virtual event after having seen positive responses from our regional counterparts of this adaptation to align with our quest to be the ‘career partner of choice’ for jobseekers,” JobStreet country manager Simran Kaur (pictured above) said in a statement.
“Although the decision to shift from physical event to digital was not an easy move to make, it is in everyone’s best interests that we prioritise precautionary measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while continuing our effort to provide the ultimate platform for jobseekers and hirers to connect,” she added.
JobStreet said that thousands of jobs will be available during the four-day virtual career fair with top employers participating from various industries.
The digital event is co-organised with AIC Exhibitions Sdn Bhd, an organiser of some of the region’s largest exhibitions and world-class conferences.
Leveraging on 20 years of experience in the career fair industry, the digital version of MCTF continues the rich tradition of being a one-stop hub for jobseekers to meet and network with both local and international companies under one roof, much like the physical event.
Jobseekers can also look forward to an interactive experience during this virtual event as they will be able to browse through job postings seamlessly with engaging multimedia content or benefit from instant interaction with HR representatives via the Chatbot and Live Chat functions to better understand a job profile.
Some of the hiring companies participating in the fair include established brands such as Hosailey, Arvato, Hartalega, RHB Bank, Top Glove, British American Tobacco, American Express, Dassault Systems, Samsung Malaysia Electronics, TIMEdotCom, and many more.
“Our goal for this event is to encourage jobseekers to reignite their passion or to look for better opportunities to rebuild themselves, especially if they have been affected by the pandemic,” said Simran.
“We also encourage jobseekers to join and submit their applications to as many companies as they find suitable during the virtual fair to increase their chances of getting hired.”
Jobseekers and anyone interested in the development of their careers or the search for jobs amid the pandemic can pre-register at www.jobstreet.com.my/mctf.
