Apart from retail therapy, you will soon be able to shop for jobs at Lazada Malaysia. The e-commerce marketplace has partnered with job search platform WOBB to host an online job fair on May 13 and 14.
Lazada Malaysia chief executive officer Leo Chow said the company was aware Malaysians are going through a rough patch after the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country, and many have lost their jobs, Malay Mail reports.
“As we move onto the next phase of the Conditional movement control order, we hope to further our efforts in stabilising the livelihoods of Malaysians by offering our platform for companies to connect with potential applicants, empowering job-seekers to bounce back on their feet.”
In a statement, Chow said the job fair, called Jom Cari Kerja, will feature over 1,000 jobs from various industries including Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), eCommerce, banking, finance, retail, supply chain, food and beverage (F&B), electronics and pharmaceutical.
“Currently, Lazada Malaysia is in discussions with around 50 international and local companies for the first-ever digital career fair,” he said, adding that positions from fresh graduates to senior executives will be available.
