In commemoration of the 120th anniversary of the Proclamation of Philippine Independence on June 12, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is holding 19 Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) job and business fairs in various local government units in 14 regions throughout the country.
Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III advised jobseekers to visit any of the job and business fairs slated in their areas to facilitate their search for employment, as numerous employers are gathered in just one venue.
