DOLE Bicol Regional Director said that this activity will help engage job seekers and employers, accelerate applicants and job matching through virtual job fair. It will also promote convenient access to employment opportunities for job seekers particularly in Albay.

“It will also provide an avenue for employers to advertise and facilitate filling-up vacancies,” he added.

According to Ms. Leah Dy, DOLE Albay Provincial Director, with the increasing unemployment rate and business establishment closure, the pressing issue on job losses gave birth to virtual job fair.

“We also grab the opportunities being offered by establishments with job opportunities to our job seekers,” she stressed.

Moreover, 261 Albayanos who were displaced from employment requested and were issued with Certificate of Involuntary Separation in order to avail of monetary benefits from the Social Security System (SSS) during the first semester. Majority of them were retrenched from their companies due to closure of operation.


“Though a few in the meantime, but we still have about 3,000 vacancies that may be availed of by our job seekers. This is a continuing activity, and we seek the support of establishments that have vacancies to join us and work together to provide our people opportunities as we try to overcome the crisis we are experiencing now,” Dy encouraged.
