Manila Bulletin ‘Job Fair Extreme’ Opens Today

MANILA, Philippines --- More than 4,000 jobseekers aiming to land employment are expected to troop to the Megatrade Hall 1 of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City today for the opening of the Manila Bulletin ''Job Fair Extreme.''

Manila Bulletin President and Publisher Atty. Hermogenes Pobre will give an inspirational message to the attendees during the opening program which will start after a 15-minute tour of the job fair venue.

Manila Bulletin's Executive Vice President Paciencia Pineda, VP for Classified Advertising Lyne Abanilla, and Assistant VP for Classified Advertising Geronimo Montalban will also be present to address the participants.

Organized in partnership with AdExhibit, Inc., the two-day ''Job Fair Extreme'' is Manila Bulletin's second job fair in Metro Manila for this year, following the successful two-day 3rd Manila Bulletin Classified Job Fair held at the Trinoma Mall Activity Center in Quezon City last March 19-20.

According to Manila Bulletin Corporate Communications Head Raul Rodriguez, ''Job fair Extreme'' is a bigger and better event, where career opportunities from the business process outsourcing (BPO)/call center, knowledge process outsourcing (KPO), real estate, retail, finance, construction, medical, engineering, accounting, nursing, and leisure industries will be made available for employment seekers.

Overseas employment will also be offered for those who want to work abroad.

''[With this job fair] we will be able to help more people, since by volume, there will be more job opportunities for those seeking employment,'' Rodriguez said.

Aside from recruitment and job placement activities, Manila Bulletin also invited four industry leaders to impart insights on the basics and complexities of job searching and to give jobseekers tips on how to get their desired jobs.

After the opening program, ZMG Ward Howell Director Engelbert Camasura will talk about ''Negotiating For A Job Offer.'' ABC Development Corporation (TV5) AVP for Employee Relationship Services Leo Gellor will speak about ''Book Smart Is Not Enough: The Behavioral Competencies That Are Lacking In A Fresh Graduate.'' Profiles Asia Pacific, Inc. President and Managing Director Jocelyn Pick will give a lecture on ''What It Means To Be Career-Ready.''

Tomorrow, the second and last day of the job fair, Philippine National Bank Senior VP and Deputy Human Resources Head Schubert Caesar Austero will present and explain the ''Top 20 Mistakes Jobseekers Make When Applying For A Job.''

Manila Bulletin Public Relations Manager Badette Cunanan said jobseekers will learn the guidelines in looking for a job.

''Whether you're a new graduate or already employed looking for another job, you will definitely get tips from these experts,'' assured Cunanan.

During the event, Manila Bulletin's online job site,, will also have a live beta testing for the company itself and its sister companies.

Before the end of the event, AdExhibit, Inc. President Gerald Chan and Rodriguez will award special prizes for the Top Three Best Booths, the Most Visited Booth, and the Early Bird among the exhibitors.

''With 'Job Fair Extreme,' we at Manila Bulletin solidify our role in national development by helping companies make employment opportunities available for jobseekers in one big venue,'' said Rodriguez.
