Eware supports CSD to hold video conferencing job fair for rehabilitated offenders
11 December 2015
The Correctional Services Department (CSD) held the Job Fair for Rehabilitated Offenders 2015 for persons in custody on December 4. During the event, the correctional institutions and the fair venue at Quarry Bay Community Hall were connected by computer video conferencing technology for employers to conduct interviews.
The job fair aimed to provide a platform for persons in custody who will be released soon to look for jobs, thus helping them to reintegrate into society quickly after release.
