800 positions on offer at STJobs fair over the weekend

More than 800 job opportunities with 107 companies are up for grabs at this weekend's STJobs Career and Development Fair.

Now in its fifth year, the free event - organised by Singapore Press Holdings' (SPH) online job portal STJobs - features booths from multinational companies, local start-ups and the civil service.

There are positions at all levels, from fresh graduates to senior management. Employers such as Marina Bay Sands (MBS), GrabCar, the Singapore Police Force and NETS have vacancies in industries ranging from food and beverage, tourism and hospitality to finance and information technology.

MBS is offering more than 500 vacancies.

There will be a resume clinic for professional advice on improving one's curriculum vitae and even drafting a one-minute video pitch. There will also be one-to-one career coaching with experts from e2i - the Employment and Employability Institute.

New this year is the U Future Leaders Summit 2016, which is organised by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and SPH, in which industry leaders like Mr Chan Chun Sing, NTUC Secretary-General and Minister in Prime Minister's Office, will discuss market trends that will benefit job seekers and working professionals.

The fair is being held at MBS halls D and E, from 10am to 6pm today and tomorrow. It is open to Singaporeans and permanent residents on both days. Foreigners with valid work or student passes are eligible for admission tomorrow only.
