Hanoi (VNA) – A job fair geared toward disabled people was organised in Hanoi on April 15 as part of the activities to celebrate the 10th founding anniversary of the municipal disabled people association.

Aiming to create opportunities for the disabled to integrate into society, the fair featured some 32 vocational training centres and employers who expected to recruit 350-400 labourers and 500 trainees.

According to Duong Thi Van, chairwoman of the municipal disabled people association, the fair gives a chance to recruiters to carry out their policies for people with disabilities, while helping the needy train for job opportunities.

Meanwhile, Dinh Thi Thu Ha from REACH which specialises in providing vocational training and career advice for disadvantaged youth said that most of the disabled are in favour of graphic design and marketing courses.

After short-course training, they are introduced to jobs and can work at some design companies, she highlighted, adding that besides job fairs, recruitment oppertunities are also available at vocational training centres’ website.

The job fair also comprised activities to popularise products made by the disabled, a forum on disabled people’s business model and exchanges with standout disabled examples who are successful in their business.-VNA
