On 8th February 2014 at Phuket Rajabhat University Convention Hall, Phuket Governor – Maitree Intusut, together with Phuket Provincial Employment Office Chief – Yaowapa Pibulpol, Chief of the Phuket Provincial Commerce Department – Prakong Rakwong, Phuket Rajabhat University Director – Dr Prapa Kayee presided over the “Phuket Jobs Fair 2014”. A number of businesses, employers and job seekers attended.
Khun Yaowapa said “Phuket has recently been experiencing problems with labor shortages especially within hotels and tourism, which each year has a demand for more than 3,000 positions. Phuket Provincial Employment Office’s annual Phuket Jobs Fair 2014 sees 80 companies offering 3,425 jobs which it is hoped will solve some of the unemployment and labor shortage problems. It is also a way for promoting independent professionals as well as those who are unemployed due to terminated contracts. At this fair, students, new graduates and the general public have an opportunity to meet with employers directly in order to apply for a job, thus saving time and expense.”
