More than 20,000 jobs are up for grabs at the largest career and education exhibition which opens its doors to the public on Thursday at Suntec Singapore. Over 600 exhibitors and companies from 20 countries are looking to fill the openings, which include more than 5,000 spots in educational institutions.

The Singapore Tourism Board has projected that some 50,000 to 60,000 additional jobs will be created by the end of 2010.

Minister of state for Education and Manpower Gan Kim Yong, who was present at the opening ceremony on Thursday morning, said: ‘The new integreated resorts, hotels and shopping malls, as well as conventions and events like the F1 race, will generate numerous opportunities in the tourism sector.’

He emphasised the importance of students making informed decisions on their courses of study and, subsequently, their careers. (story)
