Thanks to that, many people coming here grasped information about the labor market, recruitment needs and conditions of businesses inside and outside the province to look for job opportunities.
Many students and workers received career orientation and advice as well as support in finding and applying for jobs.
Pham Thi Hue (born in 1999) in Tien Phong commune, Yen Dung district said: "I used to work at a garment company in Bac Ninh province, but recently the company narrowed production and laid off workers so I quit my job. At the fair, I was interviewed by the human resources staff of Unico Global Vietnam Co., Ltd. based in the district about my skills and aspirations. It passed the preliminary round and will start probation from December. I will try to keep up with the new working environment and improve skills to have a stable income."
Many workers, especially young people, were excited when company staff guided them to complete their applications and improve interview skills to make a good impression on employers.
Since October, provincial and district authorities have coordinated with vocational schools and educational centers to organize nearly 20 job fairs attracting more than 25,000 local students and workers.
Enterprises with recruitment needs mostly have a large production scale, and a modern and professional working environment, and offer attractive salaries for workers. They mainly operate in such fields as garment, electronics, energy, overseas study, and labor export.

Through the fairs, workers in rural areas also learned about new occupations and jobs in addition to traditional ones. For example, at the job fairs in Lang Giang and Hiep Hoa districts, the Vietnam - Korea College of Technology and businesses introduced job opportunities and recruited thousands of aviation workers in positions ranging from baggage handler, ticket collector, driver, security staff and engineer to mechanic, flight attendant and pilot.
Besides, foreign labor markets such as the US, Germany, Canada, Australia recruit workers in many professions with good income, including restaurant - hotel, health care - nursing, technology, tourism services, cooking, and marketing.
According to Tran Van Ha, Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, to create jobs for workers and help businesses have quality human resources, the department has directed the provincial Employment Service Center to coordinate with units and localities to promote information work and organize job fairs.
These efforts have contributed to connecting businesses with workers and creating many career and job opportunities at home and aboard for local students and workers, thus increasing income, improving living standards, and reducing poverty sustainably.
