TRABAHO SA PLAZA: More job opportunities for Iloilo City’s jobless

ILOILO City ? The major plazas of this city will now be an avenue for jobseekers, unemployed, fresh graduates and displaced overseas Filipino workers to have easier and better access to employment opportunities.

The Iloilo City Public Employment Service Office has expanded the access of Ilonggos to job openings and opportunities through its “Trabaho sa Plaza” jobs fair which will be conducted in the major plazas of the six districts of the city.

PESO Manager Alan Zaldivar said the initiative is part of the efforts of the city government to reach out to residents who are looking for jobs or who are unemployed, so that they could participate in employment opportunities under their Project JED which stands for Jobs, Employment and Development.

“Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog wants us to vigorously implement initiatives that will provide employment opportunities to the city’s residents to help them find jobs or sources of income, for them to have an improved and better life,” said Zaldivar.

The first “Trabaho sa Plaza” will be conducted tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Jaro Plaza.

Zaldivar said 50 companies will participate in the jobs fair -- 30 are local companies and 20 are overseas recruitment agencies.

Some of the available local job openings are waiters, food handlers, office staff, account specialist, encoders, salesmen, and management trainees and supervisors.

Overseas employments that will be offered include waiter, waitresses, drivers, nurses and para-medical, among others.

Applicants are advised to bring necessary documents such as resume, transcript of records, ID pictures and certificate of employment for those who are previously employed.

The “Trabaho sa Plaza” jobs fair is the ninth job fairs conducted and supported by the Iloilo City PESO together with its various partners since January of this year, that have given employment to around 1,970 residents. (PIA-Iloilo)
