Forumers disappointed about very few PMET-level vacancies at Changi Airport career fair

Forumers at Hardware Zone have expressed disappointment that most jobs at the Changi Airport career fair is for entry-level workers and that only 2 or 3 companies offered jobs for professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMET). The career fair was touted as one which is jointly organised by Workforce Singapore, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (Caas), the National Trades Union Congress’ Aerospace and Aviation Cluster, and the Employment and Employability Institute. The joint organisers promised that there will be 2,300 positions available at the two-day career fair which ended today (9 Feb).

The newspapers reported that eight hours, long queues formed on the first day of the two-day event but that about eight in 10 jobs are for rank-and-file workers, from kitchen helpers to aircraft-cabin cleaners and drivers.

Speaking to reporters at the fair, Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say said that “response (to the fair) has been most encouraging.” He also acknowledged that the major concern for his ministry was the mismatch of skills and jobs.

He added that one of the priorities of his ministry was professional conversion programmes to help workers transit into new jobs and careers.Follow us on Social Media
