At the Labor Day job fair in Pampanga, 35 job seekers were immediately hired.

At least 35 job seekers were employed immediately at the job fair held on Monday at SM City Pampanga, becoming instant workforce members.

Five job fairs were held around Central Luzon in honor of the 121st Labor Day.

According to Luningning Vergara, manager of the Public Employment Service Office (PESO)-Pampanga, a significant turnout of job seekers lined up for more than 8,000 openings from 48 participating firms at the event held at the Event Center of SM City Pampanga.

In the live-streamed event, Vergara said, “There are many applicants who queued for various job openings as early as 7 a.m., and as of noon, there are 35 job seekers who were hired here on the spot.”

She urged those who might not be hired to keep trying because there would still be plenty of job possibilities accessible to them.

“Kayo po ang star ng araw na ito sa ating mga workers, para sa inyo po ang Labor Day job fair. I firmly believe that the restart will be coming soon. Huwag po kayong magsawang magpa-interview at sana ay kayong makausap na mas marami yung opportunity ninyo. (To our employees: You are the highlight of the day; this Labor Day employment fair is for you. You did bring a lot of resumes today, in my opinion. Do not grow weary of interviewing, and I hope you can speak with additional employers to explore more opportunities,” Vergara advised.

Janet San Jose, a recent business management graduate from one of the province’s universities, acknowledged feeling the pressure of looking for career options.

“I am eager to submit my first job application. Being a recent graduate, anxiety is, of course, present. But I’m committed to making it there. I believe I have great potential to find employment at this job fair,” she stated.

Robert Buenaventura, an electrician, is also looking for work.

“I’ve learned that there are jobs available for people with my skill set, so I’ve gone there,” the speaker says. I came here for that reason, remarked Buenaventura.

In addition to the employment fair, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) gave PHP1 million each to the local governments of Magalang and Sto. Tomas for the Negosyo sa Kariton (Nego-Kart initiative) and kits for dressmaking and casket making, respectively.

For the 164 intern-beneficiaries working on the provincial government’s initiatives, including Alagang Nanay for the Guro sa Nayon and the preventive health care system of the LGUs, the DOLE also granted the provincial government of Pampanga over PHP10 million.
