Dumaguete City (13 November) -- Preparations are now underway for the first job fair to be conducted by the Negros Oriental Association of Public Employment Services Office Managers (NOAPESOM) set on December 2 at the City Central Elementary School, this city.
According to Kenric Villaluz of DOLE here, they plan to only invite recruitment agencies with good track record for overseas work during the job fair.
NOAPESOM is the association of PESO managers in the different local government units in the province with Provincial Peso Manager Mariz Ramirez as the association President.
PESO managers serve as frontliners of DOLE in the local government unit level. “We implement the programs and services of DOLE down to the barangays,” said Amos Calidguid, Bais City PESO Manager.
DOLE has already conducted two job fairs in the province in 2006. “We held a job fair in Bais City and Bayawan City. This fair on December 2 will be our third,” said Villaluz.
Meanwhile, a total of 231 of the 652 overseas Filipino workers in Kazakhstan have decided to go home and flight arrangements for 11 of them have been made, a Philippine labor official based in Riyadh said. (PIA) [top]
