KUALA LUMPUR: More than 50,000 jobs will be listed at the Human Resource Ministry's job vacancy electronic kiosks with the first one to open at Plaza Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn said apart from professional ones, most of the jobs offered at the electronic kiosks were related to manufacturing, plantation, services and production industries.

“The electronic kiosks offer jobs in government agencies, private sector and foreign companies so those who are looking for jobs can check them out there.

“If they find jobs that are suitable for them, they can apply on the spot. The employers will contact the applicants if they match the jobs,” he told reporters after opening the sixth Asian Youth Boys (Under-19) Volleyball Championship at the Kuala Lumpur Badminton Stadium here yesterday.

Dr Fong, who is MCA vice-president, said the ministry would also set up the kiosks in Penang, Johor Baru, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching by end of the year.

“The kiosks will be set up at shopping centres as many people are there,” he added.
