Beijing is hosting the largest ever jobs fair specifically for disabled people, from May 17 to 19, with around 2,500 positions on offer.

According to Kou Zhengling, a spokeswoman for Beijing the Disabled Persons Federation, the main coordinator for the event, May 18 will focus on recruitment for college graduates with 251 job positions offered by 50 employers, including nearly a third from overseas.

On May 19, six traditional handicraft masters will be recruiting apprentices, for more unusual roles including opera makeup artist, kite-maker, and inside bottle painter.

"We hope more job opportunities can be given to disabled applicants, so that they can have a better life," Kou said.
