505 Jobseekers Hired-On-The-Spot at the Malabon City Mega Job Fair

A total of 505 jobseekers were “hired on the spot” for local employment during the Mega Job Fair last May 18, 2017 at Malabon Amphitheater. This is 57.71% of the 875 qualified applicants.

The 1593 jobseekers that trooped to Malabon were almost doubled from that of the last job fairs. The significant increase in number can be attributed to the collaboration of Malabon PESO with ABS-CBN                   in advertising and also with the cooperation of other stakeholders          (i.e. barangays, churches and schools).

The Mega Job Fair was participated by 50 local employers and five overseas agencies. It was part of the celebration of “16th Cityhood and 418th Founding Anniversary” of Malabon. It was also in line and support with a month-long DOLE’s Labor Day Celebration with the theme “Matatag na Kabuhayan at Trabaho Tungo sa Progresibong Pagbabago”.

Government agencies like SSS, PhilHealth and Pag-ibig provided pre-employment services to the job applicants. The DOLE-NCR/ CAMANAVA also extended legal and technical assistance

Among the HOTS was Ms. Heidi Torres, 19 years old lady, who was a graduate of 2 year Information Technology course and a former On-the-Job trainee of Malabon PESO. She was hired for the position of Cashier by Ace Hardware. Also, a 50 year old solo parent, Ms. Judy Peñarubia was hired as checker by Wizard Manpower. She was a beneficiary of DOLE’s Skills Training in Massage Therapy.

 

The activity was a great success because of the Malabonians, who according to Mayor Lenlen A. Oreta, are truly “ masipag, matiyaga at mapursige na makamit ang mithiin para sa magandang kinabukasan”.   END/Marilyn G. Galaites
