The Public Employment Service Office in Bacolod City will hold its MassKara Jobs Fair Oct. 2 and project exhibit Sept. 19 to Oct. 19 at SM City Mall in Bacolod City, Moises de la Cruz, PESO manager and Executive Assistant to the Mayor said yesterday.
De la Cruz said local establishments and overseas agencies will join the jobs fair. Local jobs like those for call center agents and security guards and overseas employment openings like service crews, medical professionals, and skilled workers will be posted during the jobs fair.
PESO will also showcase its accomplishments, projects, and special recruitment activities in its exhibit. De la Cruz said they will provide labor market information, in demand jobs, and other projects like the Special Program for the Employment of Students, Kabataan Program, and Workers Hiring for Infrastructure Projects.
He also said that strengthening of the career orientation among high school graduating students is one of their priorities to avoid job mismatch between labor supply and demand.
De la Cruz added that students should take up courses which will have greater demand in the future.
The market labor information will also provide the job trends in the next few years. Students should know what courses will give them jobs by the time they graduate from college, he added.
Dela Cruz said PESO has facilitated in-house trainings for immediate employment abroad like carpentry, food and beverage, housekeeping, hotel and restaurant basic services.
Meanwhile, Sea Oil, Aboy’s Restaurant, and AsiaPR are in need of workers. Interested applicants may visit PESO this week for more information.*LTG
