DAGUPAN CITY – More than 500 jobseekers and fresh graduates applied for jobs in the 2019 Bangus Festival Mega Job Fair sponsored by the city government at CSI Atrium on April 13.
A total of 31 job providers participated in the day-long mega job fair composed of 29 local and two overseas companies whose staff interviewed and conducted on-the-spot hiring for jobs locally and abroad.
The activity was facilitated by the Public Employment and Services Office (PESO) Dagupan, in cooperation with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).
PESO Manager Jocelyn Siapno said this was the fifth mega job fair held in conjunction with the annual Bangus Festival.
She added that aside from the annual mega job fair, PESO Dagupan regularly conducts local and special recruitment activities for walk-in job seekers.
This is in addition to the job search assistance offered by their office which helps job hunters find work that would match their skills.
“Our office is always open, and we make sure to accommodate all of our job seekers. We also post regular updates on our official Facebook page (PESO Dagupan) for those who are interested to participate in other recruitment activities,” added Siapno.
PESO Dagupan will also be conducting recruitment activities in colleges and universities in order to provide more employment opportunities for fresh graduates in the city. (Verdelle De Vera/CIO)
