Job hunts top 23rd EDSA I celebration

Manila (26 February) -- Job hunters trooped to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration Wednesday where a job fair was held in celebration of the EDSA People Power I.

More than 20 companies including five sea-based companies participated.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo visited POEA to mingle with the applicants who are mostly displaced workers.

Some of these displaced workers secured jobs in Dubai and in Singapore.

The President found out that some of the displaced workers are now working at home after learning new trades such as food processing and perfume making.

Government has been staging job fairs in response to the unemployment caused by global recession.

Before POEA, the Department of Public Works and Highways started holding job fair last Monday where more than 3,000 people got hired.

Earlier, Vice President Noli De Castro led the flag raising ceremony at the People Power Monument to kick off the EDSA People Power I celebration.

Also present during the rites were Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, Senator Gringo Honasan and Former President Fidel Valdez Ramos who demonstrated again his famous jump in 1986.

Yesterday, the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Foundation inaugurated the Aklatan ng Bantayog ng mga Bayani in Quezon City as part of the nationwide commemoration of EDSA People Power I.

The library aims to honor the memories of people who fought the Marcos Administration during Martial Law. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
