Upcoming career fair offers more than 10,000 jobs

THE Covid-19 pandemic disrupted business operations, resulting in loss of revenue for many industries. As a result, many people lost their jobs.

Now, two years later, the nation has eased into the recovery phase and business is picking up again.

In light of this, the Malaysia Career and Training Fair (MCTF) is back to reignite and connect businesses and jobseekers with a two-day event (March 5-6, 10am-7pm) at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, KL.

MCTF ‘22 is anticipating 40,000 visitors and over 10,000 job vacancies from the top employers across the industries, including multinational companies (MNC) and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), such as Shell, CIMB, Coway, Top Glove, Marina Bay Sands, Honda, Decathlon and more.

This is part of the long-standing continuous effort MCTF has played in supporting the nation-building of the country since 2002.

Fresh graduates are encouraged to take a gander at the future. If you are looking to get back in the game or just looking for a fresh start there is something for you at MCTF ‘22.

The fair would be providing you a platform to meet your potential employers and might even give you the opportunity to be hired on the spot – so come prepared with soft copies of resumes and essential documents.

Moreover, if you are looking to get a leg up in your career, there are many learning programmes to help you upskill.

It is a great opportunity to also observe first hand the latest trends in the job market.

MCTF has been celebrating two decades of hosting a career and training fair. It also advocates paperless resumé submission in support of the environment and minimising physical contact.

Therefore, the organisers are taking precautions to ensure health and safety requirements are adhered to and meeting the required SOPs.

All attendees will need to always wear a face mask, maintain social distancing, and run an antigen saliva self-test before attending the physical event.

If you are interested in joining the event as a jobseeker, registering online would allow you to skip the queue at the event.

Interested exhibitors are encouraged to register online to book their booths early. Booths will be limited as they will be spaced out accordingly and on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Both exhibitors and jobseekers can register to be part of MCTF here.
