Labor Day Job fair Pre-registration Opens today

Job applicants who pre-register before the actual job fair have greater hiring possibility.

Senior Labor and Employment Officer Lariele P. Arce of the Department of Labor and Employment Davao Region said that jobseekers who will participate in the Mini Job Fair and Pre-registration will have an advantage of getting to know the employers ahead and knowing their additional requirements.

“If they will go to the Mini Job Fair, they will have a great chance of to be hired and even be Hired-on-the-Spot (HOTS) because they will be able to meet the employers earlier and they will be informed of other requirements needed by the company,” Arce said.

DOLE will hold on May 1 the 2015 Labor Day Job Fair in four different venues including SM City Davao (Ecoland), Gaisano Mall of Tagum, Brgy. Darong, Sta Cruz in Davao del Sur and Gaisano Mall of Davao which will hold the event until May 2.

“The Pre-registration, Mini Job Fair and Phil-JobNet Online registration opened April 24 to30 from 10:00 in the morning until 6:00 PM at SM City Davao Ecoland and Gasiano Mall of Davao,” Arce said.

At least 10 private companies each day comprised of five local agencies and five overseas will cater applicants during the Mini Job Fair.

She said that applicants who pre-register on the said dates can proceed directly for interview during the Labor Day job fair, skipping at least three steps during the actual Job Fair Day come Labor Day.

“They don’t have to line-up in long queues. They can go to the employers for interview,” she added.

To date, a total of 15,204 job vacancies are up for grabs to jobseekers who will participate the said event.

“This is one of the DOLE’s efforts to make it easy and fast for jobseekers to find jobs that will fit their qualifications, interests and career inclinations,” said DOLE XI regional director Joffrey M. Suyao in a statement.

The 113th Labor Day Celebration, centers on the theme “Disenteng Trabaho at Kabuhayan, Alay Natin sa Bayan.” (Roberto A. Gumba, Jr./ DOLE GIP)
