News : 40,000 Jobs Up for Grabs on Labor Day Career Fair
San Fernando City, Philippines April 22, 2015 -- At least 40,195 jobs will be up for grabs in this year's Labor Day Job Fairs in Central Luzon, the Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) said on Tuesday.
Jobseekers may avail of these job-openings on the Dole Regional Office III's region-wide job fairs to commemorate this year's 113th Philippine Labor Day Celebration.
Of the total job vacancies solicited, around 29,595 will be available for local employment from 368 participating companies from various industries.
The labor department, meanwhile, is expecting around 10,600 job vacancies for overseas employment from 80 recruitment agencies, as processed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
Job vacancies for local employment include professionals, managers, supervisors, customer service representatives, call center agents, medical transcriptionists, sales clerks, office clerks, production workers, machine operators, and service workers.
Overseas employment vacancies, on the other hand include engineers, architects, administrative assistants, cooks, waiters, waitresses, construction workers, plumbers, production, and factory workers.
The Dole will be joined by members of the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) comprised of Dole attached agencies--Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO), National Conciliation Mediation Board (NCMB), National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RWTPB), Employees Compensations Commission (ECC), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda), and POEA.
The different provincial, city, and municipal local government units, through their respective Public Employment Service Offices (PESOs), various Industrial Tripartite Councils (ITCs), and other allied-partner agencies will also be present.
Participating jobseekers may avail of various pre-employment services such as issuances of birth certificates, NBI clearances, and PhilHealth Cards from the DOLE’s partner agencies--Social Security System (SSS), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), PhilHealth, and Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).
Dole Regional Director Ana Dione, in an interview with local media, urged jobseekers to be fully prepared when they attend the job fairs.
"I would like to appeal to our jobseekers to wear the proper attire when joining our job fairs. Please bring multiple copies of your resumes, certificates of employment, transcript of records, clearance, photos, and other pertinent pre-employment documents needed by employers," Dione said.
In addition, Dole's Technical Support and Services Division for Employment and Welfare head Alejandro Inza Cruz said that jobseekers may already pre-register at the Phil-Jobnet and their PESOs before.
"To avoid wasting time in filling-up our Skills Registration System Forms during the job fair, our jobseekers may already pre-register at the Phil-Jobnet and also in their nearby PESOs in their areas," Inza Cruz said.
This year's month-long Labor Day celebration in the region is anchored on the theme, "Disenteng Trabaho at Kabuhayan, Alay Natin sa Bayan."
