A total of 45 agencies are joining the job fair organized by this city’s Public Employment Service Office (PESO) at the Jaro covered gymnasium on Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The agencies are composed of 34 local companies and 11 firms recruiting for jobs abroad.
Dubbed as “Trabaho sa Plaza,” the job fair is Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog’s way of bringing employment opportunities closer to the people by holding such events in district plazas which are accessible to applicants.
The activity is under the city government’s Project JED or Jobs, Employment and Development promoted by the PESO.
To be offered at the job fair are locally available work opportunities like supervisors, management trainees, account specialists, salespersons and medical representatives, among others.
Needed abroad are waiters and waitresses, food handlers, service crew, skilled workers, paramedical professionals, and nurses.
PESO Iloilo City manager Alan Zaldivar said applicants need only to bring their resume, while having a passport is a requirement for those applying to work abroad.
