The Caloocan City government, led by Caloocan City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan, is scheduled to launch a Mega Job Fair on Tuesday, August 16, from 10:00 AM-4:00 PM at 3rd floor, SM Grand Central with over 6,000 local and overseas job vacancies from 40 of its partner agencies.
The Public Employment Service Office (PESO), thru the Department of Labor, partnered with various corporations including SM Supermarket, Puregold, Ignite Careers, Ravago Equipment Rental, and Concentrix, among others, to provide opportunities for Caloocan City residents with vacancies for high school-level to college graduates.
In line with this effort, PESO Officer-in-charge Violeta Gonzales emphasized that the process shall be easier and seamless, applicants are also to be hired-on-the-spot similar to the department’s local recruitment activity.
“Mas pinadali na natin ang pag-a-apply para sa ating mga residente at kung ma-meet naman ang mga kwalipikasyon ay maaari rin silang ma-hire on-the-spot. Nais natin na mabigyan ng oportunidad na magkatrabaho and libo-libo nating mga kababayan alinsunod sa hangarin ni Mayor Along Malapitan,” she said.
Mayor Along urged the job-seekers in the city to apply, highlighting that this program is one of the city government’s plan of action to mitigate the impact of the crisis.
“Bahagi ang Mega Job Fair ng ating pangakong recovery program para sa inyo. Alam kong marami po tayong kababayan na naghahanap ng trabaho, samantalahin niyo po sana ang pagkakataon na ito at mag-apply sa rating mga katuwang na ahensya at kumpanya,” the Mayor said.
At the same time, there will also be a “One Stop Shop” for other government offices during the said job fair which comprise services from the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Social Security System (SSS), PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG Fund, and Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), which are also open for job-seekers and the general public.
The next Mega Job Fair is scheduled on August 26, to be held at Caloocan Sports Complex, to cater more residents in North Caloocan.
