Thousands of job seekers apply for 27K job vacancies in Central Luzon
Thousands of job seekers in Central Luzon attended a job and business fair offering 27,000 vacancies with the theme “Matatag na Negosyo, Matatag na Trabaho.”
According to DOLE regional director Geraldine Panlilio, there is a heavy turnout of job applicants being offered by some 120 employers.
“As early as 7 a.m., there are lots of applicants who came here waiting for the formal opening of the employment activity,” she said in a Philippine News Agency report.
Labor and Employment Secretary Silvestre Bello, who led the formal opening of the Labor Day jobs and business fairs, said the first 50 applicants that will be hired on the spot will also receive a livelihood grant worth P20,000.
Aside from that, Bello also said 20 nego-karts (business in a cart) will be distributed to qualified beneficiaries.
