Legazpi City, Albay – Looking for a job? Yes, you can apply online!

 

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Bicol will hold its three-day Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK)  Online Job and Business Fairs with the theme, “Mayo Uno sa Bagong Panahon:  Mangagawa at Mamamayan Babangon, Susulong” starting April 30 until May 2, 2021.

 

“We are still inviting employers who may want to join in our job fair, so we can offer jobs as many as possible to all job seekers out there,” said Regional Director Ma. Zenaida A. Angara-Campita.

 

She added that given the fact that there was a slight increase in the unemployment rate in the region based on the latest result of the Labor Force Survey provided by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), the department continuously implement strategic recovery programs amidst pandemic.

 

“Despite the restriction on mass gathering due to surge in COVID cases, we are still to pursue our annual job fair, but this time we will make it online,” she added.

 

Campita explained that with a number of job loss and displacement recorded, the Department has provided its response through CAMP and TUPAD, where affected formal and informal workers were given immediate financial assistance last year.

 

“Now that our economy is gradually re-opening, we have to recover the employment that has been lost due to pandemic. It is through this online job fair that we can set up a ‘market place like’ for both employers looking for their future workers and job applicants seeking employment opportunities through an online system.

 

She said that as of this writing, there are more than 2,000 vacancies to be offered to job seekers awaiting for other employers who are continuously sending intent to participate and accomplishing the needed documents for them to be able to join the job fair.

 

“The link is bit.ly/wb-dole5-regWe advise those applicants to register ahead of time to avoid system lag,” Campita added.

 

She said that aside from Trabaho which is job fair, there are other two components.

 

One is Negosyo. This includes advocacy for entrepreneurship featuring successful local entrepreneurs and products catalogs; business opportunities that will focus on the industry specific to the locality and/or local chambers; government support and assistance in starting a business registration, e-commerce and; SMEs support and assistance through business advisory and counseling.
