CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, April 19 (PIA) -- Up to 10,362 overseas and local careers will be up for grabs during the 2017 Labor Day Job and Business Fairs.

 

“Around 7,575 job vacancies for local employment will be offered from 143 participating companies from various industries. We are also expecting around 2,787 job vacancies for overseas employment from 24 private recruitment agencies, as processed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration,” Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Regional Director Ana Dione disclosed.

 

“The vacancies are preliminary figures submitted by the DOLE Field Offices in coordination with the Public Employment Service Offices in the region and they are expected to rise in the days to come,” she furthered.

 

Carrying the theme “Matatag na Kabuhayan at Trabaho Tungo sa Progresibong Pagbabago,” the Job and Business Fairs on May 1 shall simultaneously be held in SM Baliuag, SM Pampanga, SM Clark, and SM San Fernando Downtown.

 

Also in Metro Town Mall in Tarlac City, Freedom Park Capitol Grounds in Cabanatuan City, and Ayala Harbor Point Mall in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

 

A similar activity will likewise be held on May 5 at Vista Mall Bataan.

 

These Regional Job and Business Fairs adopted the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) concept of DOLE and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

 

“TNK aims to achieve full employment and creation of jobs in Key Employment Generators (KEGS) specifically in the manufacturing, agri-business, construction, tourism, IT-BPM, transportation and logistics, and retail and trade,” Dione explained.

 

“The job and business fairs are expected to increase rate in applicants hired in KEGS; apprise and advocate job seekers to consider entrepreneurial and business opportunities; and build strong partnerships among concerned agencies such as DOLE, DTI, local government units, and stakeholders from the private sector,” the official added.
