Said job fairs are specifically targeted at fresh graduates, although other jobseekers will be welcome to join.

The conduct of job fairs and their announcement in advance have been the DOLE’s employment facilitation strategy to bring jobs closer to jobseekers, especially in the regions.

“By visiting the DOLE’s job fairs, graduates and jobseekers will spend less money and minimal effort to find a job since the DOLE already gathers both local and overseas employers all in one venue,” Baldoz explained.

She further said the available jobs in the job fairs are mostly in the following industries: agribusiness, construction, IT/ Business Process Management, health and wellness, hotel, restaurant and tourism, wholesale and retail trade, banking and finance, mining, transport and logistics, manufacturing, real estate, power and utilities, and education, which are all identified in the new Project JobsFit: DOLE 2020.

The DOLE-sponsored job fairs in Bicol will begin on March 4 while the latest will end on April 1.
