402 job seekers apply in Tabuk jobs fair

by L. Lopez

TABUK CITY (6 October) -- In what appeared to be an unusual proportion, only 402 job seekers came during the provincial jobs fair last Sept. 26-27 which offered 2,120 work vacancies.

Lourdes Canseco of Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) here said of the total number of work seekers, 343 applied for overseas employment, while 59 settled for local work vacancies.

Eleven registered overseas employers came over during the fair with only one local employment agency.

From the jobs fair, five were hired-on-spot, two signed up for Domestic Helper jobs in Israel and three for local works as welder, surveyor and electrician in Palawan and Batangas.

Canseco reported 196 overseas applicants qualified and are now completing the other requirements and conditions.

Hiring of nurses still leads the job openings overseas, supporting the increasing demand for Filipino nurses abroad. Demand for other professions were listed like civil engineers, pharmacists, teachers, midwives and the usual technical works.

Among the countries with overseas job openings include Israel, Canada, Spain, Malaysia, Hongkong, Singapore, Taiwan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, USA and United Kingdom.

The provincial jobs fair is organized by DOLE to provide job opportunities as solution to unemployment. Job creation is one of administration's major agenda in addressing poverty.

Canseco said jobs fairs also prevent cases of illegal recruitment as employment agencies participating are properly registered with their office. (PIA Kalinga) (PIA) [top]
