On March 19th, 2010, at Phuket Homework Department Store, there was a job fair held by Phuket government offices and private sectors. Lots of new graduates and unemployed people joined the fair. People could apply for a job directly
since there were application booths from 70 companies around Phuket with 4,168 job positions advertised in the fair.
Noppadon Ploy-udee, Head of Phuket Provincial Employment Office (PPEO), said that the economic crisis in Thailand has mainly caused increasing numbers of unemployed people. Consequently, PPEO agreed to hold the job fair in order the help people who were looking for a job and help business owners in recruitment.
Apart from application booths, there were 26 booths of alternative career demonstrations which may inspire people to start their own career.
