106 hired on the spot in Capitol’s Job Fair

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO—One hundred six applicants were hired on the spot at a job fair held at the Benigno Hall, Capitol Compound on Tuesday.

This was gleaned during the event organized by the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) headed by Luningning Vergara with its partner agencies, the Department of Labor and Employment and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration.

According to Vergara “opportunities are made accessible through the job fairs that are being arranged for the purpose of helping a lot of people find jobs.”

Vergara also said that “Governor Lilia Nanay Pineda regards opportunities abroad only as an extension and that her priority remains with the local employment.”

Some 415 applicants took part in the said event hoping to land a job abroad.

Four overseas recruitment companies required factory workers for Taiwan, construction workers to New Zealand and general services for Middle East.

The 106 hopefuls or 32% surpassed the 28% mark, the highest on record of hired on the spot at job fairs.
