PIA Press Release

515 Antiqueños seek jobs abroad

by PS Mabaquiao

San Jose, Antique (16 June) -- Many unemployed and displaced workers here trooped to the EBJ Gymnasium June 12 when the nation celebrated the "Araw ng Kalayaan" to apply for work abroad.

The Jobs Fair organized by the Provincial Government of Antique and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) seek to address the problem on unemployment brought about by the global recession.

Thirteen (13) international placement agencies participated in the one-day activity that generated a total of 515 applicants.

One of the applicants was Arlene Helen B. Selosa of Belison, Antique, a former domestic helper from Hongkong who plans to seek employment again so that she can save money for the education of her children and their other family needs.

The Jobs Fair here was a big help to many jobseekers as they no longer have to spend a lot of money going back and forth to Iloilo or Manila to follow-up their application.

Governor Sally Z. Perez also assured that the applicants are safe from fraudulent placement agencies as they are secured by DOLE and her office.

Furthermore, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reported a total of 185 passport approved during the Mobile Passport Services at the EBJ Gym. This is also part of the activities during the big day to support the requirements of applicants for a passport in order to work or travel abroad.

Kalayaan Jobs Fair is a nationwide event in celebration of the Philippine Independence Day organized by the Department of Labor and Employment and the Local Government Units. (PIA) [top]
