BAGUIO CITY (Apr 23) – More than a thousand careers here and abroad are waiting for job-seekers in Baguio and the rest of the Cordilleras with the upcoming “Jobs Fair” on Labor Day here.
At least 50 private and manpower recruitment agencies for local and overseas placement are joining the job fair on May 5-6, 2008 at the Baguio Convention Center, said Labor Market Information Officer Irene Bungay of the Public Employment Services Office (PESO) of the Baguio City Mayor’s Office.
On November last year, at least 1,900 job seekers from all over the Cordillera region trooped to the job fair at the Convention Center where 42 firms processed them for placement.
Also on Baguio Day, September 1, Bungay said, another jobs fair is scheduled to coincide with the Baguio City government’s projection of providing more frequent avenues for Baguio resident to get jobs and progress on their own. “Indeed, it is our own fervent wish to provide jobs for everyone,” said Mayor Reinaldo Bautista Jr.
The job fair, a special project of the PESO as mandated by the PESO Act of 1999, is supported by the DOLE, POEA, OWWA, TESDA and PLDT.# Ace Alegre for NORDIS
