More than 1,000 job seekers from Palawan are expected to participate in the Labor Day Jobs Fair of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) on May 1.
Local DOLE office chief Bernardo Toriano said job seekers can apply to be hired by 50 Palawan-based companies that will join, as well as 10 overseas recruitment agencies that are looking for skilled workers for the Middle East.
“Meron tayong 10 na mga companies na magka-cater sa overseas applicants, mga skilled workers para sa work overseas, hindi domestic workers,” he said. The event will be held at the SM City Puerto Princesa.
DOLE Palawan is also preparing to host the Regional Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Congress that will be attended by over 70 managers from various cities and municipalities in the MIMAROPA on April 17-20.
“Ito ay pagtitipon-tipon ng ating mga PESO managers sa MIMAROPA at sila yong mga link natin sa mga municipalities,” Toriano said.
The congress will highlight sharing of best practices in the implementation of job facilitation services in their respective areas.
