A special programme to help secondary school graduates find a job was  launched by the Labour Department on Tuesday. 

The website, “Career Let’s Go”, offers pre-job training until August. 

It also helps school leavers get the  latest employment information and plan their careers.

The free programme is expected to draw about 5,000 participants.

The site also provides details of job fairs organised by the department, including the large-scale job fair on July 21 and 22 at MacPherson Stadium, and another one on August 18 and 19 at Sha Tin Town Hall.

A department spokesman also encouraged secondary school graduates who want to enter the workforce to join the department’s Youth Employment and Training Programme. 

“It provides one-stop comprehensive pre-employment and on-the-job training. With no preset quota, the programme is free, with allowances payable to trainees,” the spokesman said.

To enhance young people’s job interview skills and teach them about work ethics, the department’s two youth employment resource centres –  Youth Employment Start in Mong Kok  and Kwai Fong – will offer a series of talks and courses in its “[email protected]” programme.
