DOLE bares job fair schedules in provinces for 1st quarter

Job seekers in the provinces need not go to Metro Manila to find work as job fairs are being organized in their regions, the Department of Labor and Employment said. DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz on Monday disclosed the job fair schedules for eight regions for the first quarter of 2013. “Jobs are available to job seekers raring to work this year. They could start their job search at their own communities as the DOLE is making it easier for them to do so by bringing the jobs through its job fairs in the regions,” she said in a press release. Baldoz said the DOLE is aiming to double the number of job fairs from last year. The DOLE conducted 1,553 job fairs in 2012. For the first quarter of 2013, job fairs will be held in Regions 2, 3, 4B, 5, 6, 9, 11, and the Cordillera Administrative Region. The schedules are as follows: January 2013: Region 5: January 25: USI Gymnasium, Naga City Region 6: January 24: Gaisano City Mall, La Paz, Iloilo City Region 9: January 16: Pagadian City Gym Region 11: January 23-25: Mintal, Calinan and Toril, Davao City.

Baldoz said “the year-round job fairs are one of the DOLE’s significant employment facilitation machinery that provide continuous opportunities for job seekers.” “One of the advantages of visiting a DOLE job fair is that a job seeker spends less money and minimal effort to find a job because DOLE gathers as many employers as possible—whether local or overseas—under one roof,” she said. At the job fairs, job seekers may also seek the following services from government partner agencies: birth certificate issuance services of the National Statistics Office clearance certificate issuance services of the National Bureau of Investigation and the Philippine National Police social security benefits programs of the Social Security System passport issuance services of the Department of Foreign Affairs
