KUALA LUMPUR: About 10,000 job seekers are expected to visit the BN Youth Job Fair '12 (BN YJF12) at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium here, held in conjunction with Umno's 66th birthday celebrations.
BN YJF12 programme director Mohd Yassin Mohd Ismail said, thousands of jobs were offered by the private and public sectors through 40 exhibition stalls.
"The exhibition is the best platform to find jobs, so make full use of the opportunity," he told Bernama.
He said BN YJF12, for the first time, provided an online profiling facility for job seekers.
"Online profiling has 600 companies registered with BN YJF12, functioning to suit available jobs to match the qualifications of applicants. The job seekers know which companies are offering the jobs they are looking for," he added.
Mohd Yassin hoped job seekers, especially those who had just completed their studies, could equip and prepare themselves with all the requirements, including documents, before coming to the fair.
The exhibition is open from 10am to 10pm. Entrance is free.
Meanwhile, University of Nottingham (Malaysian campus) final-year mechanical engineering student Hazren Hamid, 23, said the programme should be continued in other locations.
He said, through the fair, job seekers could meet representatives of companies offering jobs, as compared to sending resumes online with scant chance of getting an interview.
An employee in a financial institution, Phupinder Singh, 38, said: "I have worked for 15 years in finance, but the job fair allows me to look for job opportunities in other sectors". -- BERNAMA
