CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Some 6,451 jobs await jobseekers in this year’s Kalayaan 2017 Job and Business Fairs in Central Luzon, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced Thursday.
DOLE Regional Director Atty. Ana Dione said that all job vacancies solicited are intended for local employment from 97 participating companies from various industries.
Meanwhile, the labor agency is also expecting about 1,500 job vacancies for overseas employment from 12 recruitment agencies, as processed by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
Most job vacancies for local employment include Cashiers, Production Operators, Customer Service Representatives, Sales Clerks, Customer Service Consultants, Retail and Sales Agents, Sewers, Cashiers, Drivers, and Accounting Staff, among others.
Overseas employment vacancies, on the other hand include Production Workers, Engineers, Architects, Administrative Assistants, Cooks, Waiters, Waitresses, Construction Workers, and Plumbers.
The Kalayaan 2017 job and business fair will be held on June 12 at the Malolos Convention Center, City of Malolos in Bulacan.
Meanwhile, another Kalayaan 2017 job and business fair will happen the following day, June 13, at the Robinsons Townville, Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija.
Dione said that the job and business fairs adopted the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) Concept forged by the DOLE and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
“The TNK concept aims to achieve full employment and creation of jobs in Key Employment Generators (KEGs) specifically in the manufacturing, agri-business, construction, tourism, IT-BPM, transportation and logistics, and retail and trade,” Dione explained, adding:
“The job and business fairs are expected to increase rate in applicants hired in KEGS during the job fairs, apprise and advocate job seekers to consider entrepreneurial and business opportunities, and build strong partnerships among concerned agencies such as the DOLE, DTI, local government units, and stakeholders from the private sector.”
The DOLE will be joined by partner agencies such as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) to offer their services.
Meanwhile, the DOLE Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) attached agencies such as the 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), and POEA, will also be present.
The different local government units, along with their respective Public Employment Service Offices (PESOs), and other allied-partner agencies will also be present. 
Dione, in an interview with media, once again urged and reminded jobseekers to be fully prepared for the job and business fairs.
“Our jobseekers must come on time and fully prepared for our upcoming Kalayaan 2017 job and business fairs. Come in 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 added that jobseekers may already pre-register before June 12.
“Our jobseekers may already pre-register at the Phil-Jobnet website or at the nearest PESO in their areas to save time in filling-up the Skills Registration System Forms during the job fair,” Inza Cruz said.
This year’s month-long 119th Philippine Independence Day celebration in the region anchors the theme, “Pagbabagong Sama-Samang Balikatin.”
