job seekers crowding an IR booth

At the recent 4-day Career and Education Fair 2009 held at Suntec Convention Centre, the 2 integrated resorts (IR) drew the largest crowds. Massive crowds thronged both IRs booths from the moment the fair opened its doors.

Applicants were made up of Singaporeans and foreigners, young and old, and even those who are employed. Many foreign job applicants have flown in specially for this fair.

Despite the economic downturn, the tourism sector in Singapore is still hiring. 25,000 jobs will be created in this sector over the next few years with major developments like the 2 IRS.

A mind-boggling 20,000 job seekers applied for the 800 job openings offered by Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS).

‘Despite the current economic climate, Resorts World at Sentosa will deliver its commitment of 10,000 jobs when it opens early next year. The Resort is committed to hire Singaporeans,’ said an RWS statement after the fair ended.

Gaming courses are popular at the fair

Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, which plans to open by end of year 2009, is hiring staff in areas such as Table Games, Slots, Casino Finance, Player Development and Surveillance later this month. Up to six months will be set aside to prepare staff for the work at the resorts.

The resorts expect to attract thousands of punters when their doors open.

Trying their luck at the gambling table first.
