About 15,000 domestic and overseas job openings will be made available during the five job fairs that will be hosted by the Quezon City government in partnership with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and SM Supermalls during the celebration of Labor Day today.
The job fairs, with the theme “Araw ng Paggawa, Trabaho Para sa Manggagawa,” will be conducted simultaneously in four SM malls located in Quezon City (North Edsa, Fairview, Novaliches and Sta. Mesa) and at the M-Place Mall on Mother Ignacia Avenue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
According to the city’s public employment services office, the Labor Day job fairs will offer a wide array of job vacancies ranging from janitorial to managerial positions.
For local manpower pooling, available job postings are for call center agents, accounting clerks, office staff, service and kitchen crew, cashiers, baggers and sales personnel.
For overseas employment, those most needed are domestic helpers, skilled workers and heavy-equipment operators.
Carlo Magno Abella, chief of the Public Employment Service Office, advises job applicants to bring along with them all necessary requirements to facilitate their application. These include bio-data/resume, with recent ID photos; school records; SSS number; and National Bureau of Investigation and barangay clearances.
The Labor Day job fairs in Quezon City, organizers said, underscore the city government’s continuing efforts to expand its employment base for its unemployed and under-employed residents.
