The festival attracted nearly 1,000 students from primary education department and students of other departments of the pedagogy university and students studying pedagogy department of other universities in the south. They had opportunity to apply for different position in the public and private schools. Most schools had interviews at the spot and selected candidates of their choice for next appointment.
Additionally, some recruiters offered students to visit their schools to find out more information about schools.
On the occasion, many schools offered 43 scholarships each worth VND1 million in cash and an English course of VND23 million to poor but good students of primary education department.
Head of the department of primary education, teacher Duong Minh Thanh said that as the first employment festival was a success with the participation of five private schools and English teaching and research association in HCMC, the second one attracted 11 non-public school and two education and training centers.
The festival is a meaningful activity because it promotes employment for pedagogy students amid the difficulties in finding job amongst pedagogy students which the government and the society take heed to.
At the festival, many pedagogy students especially from disadvantaged districts had a chance to find out suitable employment.
The festival organizer hoped the event will become an annual activity of the primary education department with the participation of more schools.
