Hong Kong, 13 March 2020 – Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) today announced that it will hold a Virtual Career Expo, the first and largest online career fair ever staged in the city’s innovation and technology sector, on 25 March 2020 to 21 April 2020.  

More than 1,000 jobs will be on offer at the Virtual Career Expo, with 150 participating technology companies, spanning across four major technology fields of Biomedical Technology, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Smart City and Fintech. These companies include Hong Kong Science Park companies, current incubatees and graduates from HKSTP’s incubation programmes, SMEs and multinationals.

As of 12 March, of the jobs available at the Fair, the majority are in areas of technology and R&D, such as Information and Communication Technology, Engineering and Biomedical Science. About one third of those roles are looking for fresh college graduates, while the majority are for entry-to-mid-level positions. Also, around 20% of the positions are open for post-graduates or those with doctoral degrees and above.

Albert Wong, CEO of HKSTP, said, “With the Government’s ongoing support in driving I&T, HKSTP strives to strengthen Hong Kong’s innovation ecosystem by building one of the richest and most diverse I&T talent pools in the city. By leveraging technology, we hope that our Virtual Career Expo will provide a new, dynamic talent solution to our partners, incubatees and alumni, and in particular, breaking free of all the limitations of traditional hiring events.”
