In this hybrid activity, the pre-registration, screening, and job matching stages will be conducted online from April 25-29, 2022, while the final interview stage will be face-to-face, which will take place at NCCC Mall, Buhangin, Davao City, on Labor Day.

The 2022 Labor Day TNK Job and Business Fair, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) XI,  Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Davao, City Government of Davao, and NCCC Mall, will bring together 49 employers in Davao Region offering a total of 4,710 local and overseas job vacancies as of April 22, 2022.

Regional Director Atty. Randolf C. Pensoy emphasizes the department’s commitment to help and mitigate in the recovery of the labor market from the global health crisis. “The pandemic has redefined our access to employment opportunities. Now that we are set to resume face-to-face job fair, along with our partners, we are excited for what’s in store for our jobseekers. This is a clear manifestation that we are recovering as one.”

The Employment Unit encourages jobseekers to regularly visit DOLE XI- Davao Region Facebook page for announcements and advisories on the events. Separate virtual coordination meetings with employers and jobseekers will be held prior to the event.

The Labor Day TNK is in line with the DOLE’s mandate to promote gainful employment opportunities as we navigate through the new normal. This year’s Labor Day theme is “Matatag na Manggagawa, Matatag na Bansa.”###MFKM
