Here’s good news for job seekers including the fresh graduates!
In celebration of Labor Day, the city government’s Public Employment Service Office (PESO) in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment-Regional Office-9 will organize a job fair tomorrow, Sunday (May 1) where some 8,547 job vacancies will be opened.

The job fair will be held at the Western Mindanao State University (WMSU) gymnasium in Baliwasan starting at 8am.

PESO manager Francisco Barredo said of the total 8,547 job vacancies, 7, 291 will be for placements abroad while 1,256 slots will b for local placements.

Barredo said 31 international recruiting agencies and 24 local agencies will participate in the day long job fair.

“This is in line with the city’s thrust to help our jobless constituents to get employment in accordance with their qualifications”, the PESO manager said. “I hope our people will take advantage of this rare opportunity”.

Since its establishment a few years back, the PESO has facilitated the employment of thousands of Zamboangueños who are now gainfully employed either abroad or locally.

Last April 11 to 13, the PESO also facilitated the hiring of technically-skilled workers for DM Consunji Group of Companies to be assigned in mining companies based in Luzon and Visayas. Hired were qualified engineers, geologists and heavy equipment operators.

On the same period, the MGM International Manpower also hired dietitians, engineers, nurses, hospital cleaners and food servers to work in the Middle East. — City Hall PIO
