As a birthday gift to the constituents of Zamboanga, House Deputy Speaker and District I Representative Beng Climaco will sponsor a job fair on Friday, September 7, that will make available 4,000 job placements.

The job fair will coincide with TESDA fiesta and will be held at the Campion Lecture Hall of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (ADZU) in La Purisima from 8am to 5pm.

The activity will be in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)-9, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)-9 and the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) under the Office of the City Social Welfare and Development Office.

Climaco said some 4,000 job vacancies will be made available for local and overseas employment.

Pre-registration is ongoing at the DOLE and PESO offices every day from 8am to 5pm.

As an added attraction, a one stop shoo processing area for authentication of birth records, passport processing and assessment and issuance of skills certificate will also be made available.

Instead of a big birthday bash, the lady solon deems it fit to celebrate her natal day with the jobs fair as part of her continuing advocacy to help provide job opportunities for young graduates and the unemployed.

All year round, Climaco also partners with TESDA for the conduct of skills and livelihood trainings for different sectors or groups in the barangays. In fact, just last week,  the TESDA has conferred on Climaco and the 1st Congressional District Office of Zamboanga the 2012 Regional KABALIKAT Award under the Legislative Category.

Sec. Joel Villanueva, Director-General of TESDA, presented Deputy Speaker Climaco the Regional KABALIKAT Award in grateful recognition of Zamboanga City’s First District exemplary contribution in the advancement of technical education and skills development in the country. The awarding rite was held during TESDA’s 18th Anniversary on August 24 at TESDA Women’s Center, Taguig City. — Marvin Segura
