Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Labour Department (LD) will hold the Youth Recruitment Day@Youth Employment and Training Programme on May 16 for young school leavers aged 15 to 24 with educational attainment at sub-degree level or below. The recruitment day is a large-scale activity under the LD's special programme "Career Let's go" this year.

     A total of 26 organisations from various industries including hotel, banking, aviation services, tourism, retail, catering, film, public utilities, telecommunications and facility management will participate in the recruitment day, offering about 800 on-the-job training vacancies for young job seekers. Participating organisations will set up booths and conduct recruitment on the spot.

     The job vacancies cover a wide variety of positions such as airline ground crew, operations trainee, engineer trainee, customer services officer, personal banking officer, makeup artist and barista, most of which offer monthly salaries from $9,000 to $15,000.

The vacancies do not require relevant academic qualifications or work experience from applicants. Job seekers aged 15 to 24 with educational attainment at sub-degree or below are welcome to submit applications on the spot. They may be invited for on-site interviews.

     The LD will set up a booth at the venue to provide information on the Youth Employment and Training Programme (YETP) and its one-month workplace attachment training, for which young people can enrol on the spot.

Meanwhile, various training bodies will also introduce their pre-employment training courses and "Tailor-made Training-cum-employment Projects" under the YETP, including the e-Learning Support Scheme, which provides job opportunities for youngsters interested in information technology, education or multimedia creative industries. They will also provide career consultation and offer advice on resume preparation for job seekers.
