ZAMBOANGA CITY— The Department of Labor and Employment regional Office No. 9 in partnership with the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of LGU-Zamboanga City will conduct a two-day job fair on February 27-28, 2019 at the KCC Mall de Zamboanga.
The job fair is in line with the Dia de Zamboanga Celebration which falls on February 26, 2019.
Thirty-five (35) local companies and overseas agencies with active job orders/job vacancies will participate to provide employment opportunities to jobseekers in Zamboanga City.
“DOLE and its partners have been conducting job fairs for the longest time now however this one will be quite different from the others since this is the first time that a Pre-Employment Seminar for Local Applicants or PESLA will be conducted,” Regional Director Ofelia B. Domingo said in an interview.
Through the PESLA, Domingo said job seekers will be assessed to determine what intervention can be given to them, the “do’s and don’ts” during the interview, and other needs.
Aside from the PESLA, agencies such as the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority IX (TESDA9) will provide free massage therapy, wellness and haircut meanwhile the following agencies will form a One-Stop Shop to facilitate employment requirements of jobseekers: SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG, PNP, DOLE and POEA.
“We are inviting our jobseekers to participate as this will give them a chance to meet employers, establish professional relationships, and discuss opportunities since there are a number of employers from various industries who signified to join this job fair,” shared Director Domingo.
Jobseekers are advised to pre-register at the PESO located at Pettit Barracks, this City from 8:00AM to 5:00PM to avoid long queues during the job fair proper. END
