National Job Fair designed to reduce unemployment rate
April 24, 2019 5:01 pm
The inaugural National Job Fair is currently underway, in an effort to reduce the unemployment rate to four percent by 2021.
Employment Minister, Parveen Kumar says this will empower young people with the knowledge and skills needed in order for them to be easily absorbed into the workforce.\
Kumar says this job fair provides the opportunity for unemployed youth to interact directly with potential employers.
He urges employers to work with the government to provide more attachments for the unemployed to gain necessary work experience.
Such engagements will spearhead the smooth transition of school leavers and graduates from higher education into the world of work. Into the aspiration of the Fijian Government into a world of decent jobs and employment growth.
Employers at the job fair are accepting applications from those seeking work.
The event ends tomorrow evening.
