The human resources and social security department of the Tongzhou district of Nantong city – located in East China's Jiangsu province – held its first on-site jobs fair after the Spring Festival on March 23 in the district human resources market, in the Nantong National High-tech Industrial Development Zone.
A total of 46 businesses resident in the district brought more than 2,000 job opportunities in 282 posts to the fair, attracting nearly 1,000 employment seekers for consultations and applications.
"The job fair provided 2,164 job opportunities in many posts such as business specialists, sales managers, procurement engineers and accountants, offering multiple choices for the job seekers," said Wang Yuhui, director of the Tongzhou district employment administration center.
The participating companies – from the machinery, electronics, construction, textiles, home furnishings, marketing and services sectors – brought a large demand for labor.
"We plan to recruit some electroplating engineers and foremen, as well as systems engineers, with a monthly salary ranging from 4,000 yuan ($ 612) to 7,000 yuan," a recruiter from Liz Electronics (Nantong) Co Ltd said.
"We also want manufacturing technicians and general workers and plan to hire more than 50 front-line workers this time."
Chen added that Liz Electronics was ready to sign labor contracts then and there with the employees and pay their share of the employees' social insurance and housing funds. The newbie employees will also be entitled to meal subsidies, annual physical examinations, activity subsidies and full-attendance bonuses.
One highlight was a smart recruitment system that was adopted by the fair. The stalls of all the participants were equipped with tablet computers and the LCD screens behind them displayed the employment information of the businesses, making it easier for job seekers to sort out the positions on offer.
Cai Jinjin, a job seeker who attended, praised the Tongzhou district human resources market for its intelligent and modern services.
"I had to wait in long queues and endure a chaotic environment when I went to jobs fairs in the past," Cai said. "This fair is different, because I can get employment information easily through LCD screens."
"I can also have my job information automatically and accurately matched with the job requirements of certain enterprises, after I registered through my phone." Cai added.
Moving forwards, the human resources market will regularly hold job fairs on-site, as well as offering online recruitment livestreaming sessions at the same time, to provide job seekers and employers with an efficient service.
