Timothy James, a 26-year-old fresh graduate, walked into the Career & Employability Job Fair last month with curiosity and an open mind. Graduating from Republic Polytechnic with a Diploma in Restaurant and Culinary Operations, he has always wanted to be a Chef since young. He would pretend to be a hotel chef, while preparing sumptuous meals for his family. After chatting with different employers, he secured an interview with Pan Pacific Hotel.
Applying for jobs in the digital world is easy and fuss-free. You could fill up an application form, submit and wait for a call in the comfort of your home. But many employers still choose to participate in job fairs. We met Woodlands Health’s Human Resources (HR) manager, Elaine Lee to learn more from the employer’s point of view.
As we are actively recruiting, screening the applicants in person is a fast and effective way to assess if they are a right fit for the job. It is during these physical interactions that we get to see their personality and understand what candidates are looking for. We do meet job seekers from diverse backgrounds– some looking to switch careers, and others who have been out of work due to other commitments. At Woodlands Health, we are looking for like-minded colleagues who have a passion to care for the population. We’re open to hiring candidates and training them to be equipped with the skills and knowledge for the job.
