The business and job fairs are one of DoLE’s employment facilitation strategies to bring under one venue employers who are looking for qualified employees and workers who are looking for jobs.
Anchored on the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan initiative of the Labor department and the Department of Trade and Industry, the fairs aim to bring employment opportunities and entrepreneurship to the grassroots level. WILLIAM B. DEPASUPIL
