Another job fair, also on the same day, will be held at the KB Gymnasium, Capitol Compound, Malolos, Bulacan and Municipal Gym in Masinloc, Zambales. Aside from May 1, job fairs will be held on May 3 at the Municipal Atrium, New Municipal Bldg., Marilao, Bulacan and Freedom Park Capitol Grounds, Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija.

The DOLE will be joined by members of the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) comprising DOLE attached agencies–Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO), National Conciliation Mediation Board (NCMB), National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RWTPB), Employees Compensations Commission (ECC), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and POEA.

The different local government units, through their respective Public Employment Service Offices (PESOs), various Industrial Tripartite Councils (ITCs), and other allied-partner agencies will also be present.

Participating jobseekers may avail various pre-employment services such as issuances of birth certificates, NBI clearances, and PhilHealth Cards from DOLE’s allied partner agencies–the Social Security System (SSS), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), PhilHealth, and the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

The TESDA, through their massage therapist and haircutter graduates, will also be providing free services to participating clients, jobseekers and visitors.

DOLE Regional Director Atty. Ana Dione, in an interview with local media, urged and reminded jobseekers to be fully prepared for the job fairs. “To our jobseekers, please come on time and be fully prepared for our job fairs. Do wear the proper attire and bring multiple copies of your resumes, certificates of employment, transcript of records, clearance, photos, and other pertinent pre-employment documents needed by employers,” Dione said.

DOLE-Technical Support and Services Division for Employment and Welfare Chief Alejandro Inza Cruz also added that jobseekers may already pre-register at before May 1. “To save time in filling-up our Skills Registration System Forms during the job fair, our jobseekers may already pre-register at the Phil-Jobnet website or at the nearest PESO in their areas,” Inza Cruz said.

This year’s month-long Labor Day celebration in the region is anchored on the theme, “Kinabukasan Sigurado sa Disenteng Trabaho.”
