Capitol sponsored Jobs fair
for pre-registered applicants
open Friday, at the ICMall
TAGBILARAN CITY, July 26 (PIA)--Job seekers, Bohol Capitol is sponsoring a jobs fair this Friday, July 29, but applicants, to be entertained by employers, need to pre register.
According to Capitol's Bohol Employment and Placement Office (BEPO), an attached office of the Office of the Governor, registrations for Friday Fair are facilitated at the BEPO or the municipal Public Employment Service Office (PESO).
BEPO Ma. Vilma Yorong said the Jobs Fair, which happens at the Island City Mall Activity Center opens for overseas and local employment.
Signifying interest to join the first Provincial Government sponsored fair this year are 25 recruitment and employment agencies, each with their own options for local and overseas slots, Yorong said.
Aimed at bringing government services closer to its constituents, the jobs fair is among Bohol's local efforts at facilitating proper jobs matching amid the rising problems of underemployment due to over-qualification.
Due to the expected turn-out, which could be very good considering the past Bohol sponsored jobs matching, BEPO has decided for the pre-registration as a strategy to also help PESO come up with a local directory of skills for future uses, BEPO explained.
At the PESO or BEPO, job fair organizers advised job applicants to bring the necessary documents to show to the PESO so the applicant can be listed according to skills or capacities.
Only thos who have pre-registered would be entertained this Friday, BEPO warns.
On Friday, applicants need still to come to the ICM in smart casual attire and present their documents including a comprehensive resume, school diploma or transcript of records and other job related certificates and employment records to show to agencies. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
