ROSALES- Job hunting was made easier by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)-Regional Office 1 when it partnered with SM Hypermarket and the Department of Trade and Industry for the conduct of livelihood and job fairs last May 1, a Labor Day.

The fairs were held at the Atrium and second floor of SM City Rosales here, where, as early as 9:00 o’clock in the morning, countless jobseekers queued at the gates in business attires with requirements at hand.

At 10:00 o’clock in the morning, the jobseekers entered the job fair areas and painlessly took efforts to scan the vacancies posted for both local and overseas employment.

In a short program to formally open the livelihood and job fairs, DOLE Regional Director Grace Y. Ursua said her agency was working closely with local and overseas employers and other stakeholders in the labor sector to help address the unemployment problem in Region 1 particularly Pangasinan.

“We want to see to it that our jobseekers, whether they are new entrants to the labor force, or seeking new or another employment, will find at least one job that will fit their qualifications, skills, career inclinations, interests and other credentials,” Ursua said.
She also thanked the local and overseas employment agencies that participated in the job fairs.

The top five local employers were: Sitel, Phils. with 300 career opportunities for customer service representatives; Maxim de Humana International, Inc. which needs 100 high speed sewers, 300 female production operators, 50 male production operators; Kenwood Hauler/San Vicente Dressing Plant with vacancies for 50 processing crew, drivers, office personnel, production checkers, civil engineers and others; Motortrade Nationwide, Inc. which needs 30 marketing assistants, 20 branch secretaries, 30 credit counselors and others, and PR Gaz, Inc. with 20 field salesmen, delivery riders, accountants, trade marketing specialists and account specialists.

Other local employers include SM Supermalls, Hypermarket and Appliance Centers; St. Joseph Drug; St. Camillus College of Manaoag Foundation, Inc.; Northcare Contact Center, Inc.; Trust International Paper Corp.; Triple E Manpower and General Services, Inc.; Sheridan JECO Group of Companies, PhilPlans First, Inc. and Champion Employment Agency.

Up for overseas employment are skilled construction workers, engineers, nurses, teachers, welders, steel fixers, mechanical operators, plumbers, pipe fitters, tile setters, painters, carpenters and electricians, chefs, florists, accountants, bartenders and cashiers.

Ursua also said the licensed recruitment agencies that offered the most number of job orders are France Asia Intl, Inc.; East West Placement Center; Placewell Intl. Services, Corp.; SMC Manpower Agency Phils., and ARAM Enterprises, Inc.

A representative of a recruitment agency who requested not to be named said most of the jobseekers for overseas employment lacked the experience and were not skilled to the positions they applied for.

” While most of the job orders we offered are for skilled workers, applicants are mostly seeking clerical works. We lack applicants for welders, tile setters, electricians and carpenters. These are what most recruiters need for overseas employment,” she said.

This year’s Labor Day theme is “Disenteng Trabaho at Kabuhayan, Alay Natin sa Bayan.”

Aside from the job and livelihood fairs, the activity also featured a Diskwento Caravan to ease general consumers from the soaring prices of commodities.

Basic commodities and other items at the SM Hypermarket were availed of at discounted prices including other promos.

There were also free manicure and pedicure and massage services for the public and jobseekers.

Other government agencies that offered their services are: Professional Regulations Commission (PRC), Social Security System (SSS) and the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC).

“In this Labor Day celebration, we are glad to be able to provide wide array of services not only to jobseekers and workers, but to the general public,” Ursua said.
