In San Fernando, La Union, new mall to hire over 100 workers Regional Director Grace Ursua of the Department of Labor and Employment-Regional Office No. 1 yesterday reported to Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz that more than 100 workers will be employed when a new mall opens in the city of San Fernando, La Union. “La Union Skymall Corporation, a local company, is putting up a large shopping center in this city. It is hiring workers for its operation,” Ursua said. The DOLE regional official said future tenants of the mall are also now accepting applicants for their manpower needs. According to Ursua, one of the tenants, Puregold, is now hiring HR supervisors, HR Staff, HR clerks, marketing staff, technical support staff, visual artists, merchandising staff/clerk, administrative staff, treasury staff, audit staff, accounting staff, inventory control staff, store managers, management trainees, section supervisors, warehouse supervisors, and maintenance supervisors/staff. “One good thing about the Puregold is that it encourages fresh graduates to apply for its vacancies,” Ursua said, as she encouraged workers in San Fernando and in nearby towns and cities to explore the employment opportunities offered by the new mall. She said the company, in cooperation with the City of San Fernando Public Employment Service Office and the DOLE-La Union Field Office, held a recruitment activity last week at the Lion’s Park beside the San Fernando City Hall to fill their vacancies. Fiorello Surell, DOLE La Union Field Office head, said that aside from the Puregold, some of the other establishments which will rent retail spaces in the new mall are fast-food operator Mc Donald’s, Mercury Drug Corporation, Fun House, Chicboy, Fiesta Shopping Center, and CD-R King. Secretary Baldoz commended the city government of San Fernando, La Union, and other government agencies for working together to create an environment conducive for investments in the city. Investments, she said, translate to local employment, which tops the government’s labor and employment agenda. “Job creation results largely from good investments, which in turn depend on the strong cooperation of support agencies,” Baldoz said.
