This is what Department of Labor and Employment Bicol Regional Director Nathaniel V. Lacambra opined after confirming that about 77 local and overseas employers will join the the simultaneous Jobs Fair on May 1 in two major cities of Bicol.
“It’s simple math, actually. More employers means more vacancies, more vacancies means more opportunities for the applicants to find a job,” RD Lacambra explained.
The Jobs Fair is DOLE Bicol’s main event for the celebration of the Labor Day 2015, which is centered on the theme "Disenteng Trabaho at Hanapbuhay, Alay Natin Sa Bayan".
As of press time, DOLE Bicol recorded a total of 21 overseas employers and 43 local employers participating in the Mega Jobs and Livelihood Fair at SM Naga City.
Meanwhile, some 13 local employers have signified interest in joining the Jobs Fair at the 4th Floor Activity Center, at LCC Mall, Legazpi City.
“We are projecting that the number of participating employers will still increase come May 1. It always happens every year,” DOLE Bicol Assistant Regional Director Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla said.
Among the participants in the Jobs Fair are the eleven agencies of the DOLE Regional Coordinating Committee
For the Jobs Fair in Legazpi on May 1, DOLE partnered with LCC Mall, PESO Legazpi and ABS-CBN TV 4 Bicol.
In Naga, it teamed up with SM Naga, Naga Colleges Foundation (NCF), Metro Naga PESO and ABS-CBN TV 4 Bicol. The Naga Jobs Fair will run for two days, from May 1 to 2.
