SIP carried out a campaign themed "Career Assistance Month" in January, aiming to help more unemployed people get a job or start their own businesses.
All related departments in SIP such as Employment Service Center, sub-districts' HR markets and community committees joined the campaign, informing the residents of the program through on-line and off-line publicity tools, expounding on local employment policies to them and answering their inquiries.
During the campaign, the administrative staff in different communities visited 273 families with difficulties in earning a living, learning about their needs and trying to figure out solutions for them. With their help, 115 people attended local career training sessions.
Although the campaign has concluded, SIP is still continuing its efforts to help the unemployed, especially the less competitive job hunters. A long-term career assistance mechanism and more effective support policies are expected to take effect this year.
