Mr. Velarde also presented the different PESO Programs.   

The next speaker, Angelica C. Fresnoza, Labor and Employment Officer of DOLE-NCR CAMANAVA Field Office, presented the major industries that will generate numerous employment opportunities as foreseen in the Project JobsFit, also known as the “Key Employment Generators”, followed by an update on the top 10 highest-paying jobs in the Philippines and the prescribed “21st Century Skills” that the future jobseekers need to possess.

Afterwards, Galang facilitated the breakout sessions, wherein students had an opportunity to inquire with practicing professionals on different industries in the field of architecture, engineering, medicine, hotel and restaurant management, entrepreneurship, theatre arts, and public administration.
