DOLE Invites Jobseekers for the Labor Day Jobs and Livelihood Fair

Date Posted: Apr 15, 2010

As part of the celebration of Labor Day, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is inviting all Filipino jobseekers to attend the Labor Day Jobs and Livelihood Fair on May 1, 2010 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at SMX Convention, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City and other parts of the country.


The 2010 Labor Day theme is “Manggagawang Pilipino, Kaagapay sa Pagbabago” which translates the crucial role of the workers in the national efforts to achieve development and an opportunity to pay to the Filipino workers.


Labor secretary Marianito Roque said the Job and Livelihood Fair will showcase the collaboration of the social partners in the efforts to facilitate the employment of workers while celebrating at the same time the 108th Labor Day anniversary on May I this year.


He added that major direct companies, local and overseas agencies promised to participate this year to offer thousands of jobs and livelihood opportunities for the Filipinos. Other labor groups will also be there to commemorate the day of laborers such as Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP), National Alliance of Trade Unions (NATU), Federation of Free Workers (FFW), Trade Unions of the Philippines and Allied Services (TUPAS) and Alliance of Filipino Workers (AFW).


The Labor Day Job and Livelihood fair will also be held around Metro Manila such as SM malls (Megamall, North EDSA, Fairview, San Lazaro and Las Piñas), Region 1, CARAGA, NCR and other regions in the country.


Aside from jobs, there will also be a One-Stop-Shop where new graduates and other new entrants to the labor force may avail of pre-employment documentation services from DFA, NSO, BIR, SSS, and Phil Health will also be set up at the Job Fair venues.    Workers may also inquire on the services of Pag-ibig, PRC, and FFW.


Free livelihood assistance and seminars will also be offered. Roque said that various government agencies including labor groups will put up livelihood and productivity information booths to provide business counseling and entrepreneurship orientation to interested workers.  


TESDA will conduct skills competition, demonstration, and training. Other agencies will provide basic medical and first aid services, and legal and welfare assistance.


Roque said jobseekers are encouraged to register with the PhilJobNet starting April 8 to April 30 as this will hasten skills and job matching and the placement of qualified applicants.
