This year's event is different from the previous nine occasions. As the International Labor Day was approaching, the organizers divided the site into four regions: recruitment, entrepreneurship display, policy release, and consulting services. The job fair used to be held at Lingling Middle School and this year it cooperated with the Fenglin Health Industry Group to establish a platform to optimize the business environment. In the “Recruitment Area”, there were 86 employers providing more than 1,000 jobs, setting up booths in four categories: medical science and technology, modern services, education and training, and trade and commerce manufacturing, where more high-tech companies stood out from the previous low-end ones. The "Entrepreneurial Exhibition Area" invited entrepreneurs to conduct live demonstrations of entrepreneurial skills such as tea ceremony, VR, flower arrangement, and baking. The "Policy Release Area" mainly introduced and released the latest entrepreneurship and employment policy brochures as well as the “FengLin Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Service Handbook”. The "Consulting Service Area" provided consulting projects such as entrepreneurship policy, employment guidance, labor rights protection, job selection psychology and health care.
After the job fair, the organizers will keep track of the information on employment and recruitment, get inside of the employers to understand the recruitment of job seekers who have reached initial intentions. It will also analyze situations where the recruited have signed the intent but failed to be employed, so as to provide reference and information for the future recruitment events.
