She also reminded jobseekers to bring with them the following documents before going to any of these job fairs: resumé or curriculum vitaé; 2×2 ID pictures (have multiple copies for multiple applications); certificate of employment (for those who were formerly employed); diploma; transcript of records; and authenticated birth certificate.
Moreover, the BLE Director said these job fairs are in coordination with various employers, local government units (LGUs) through their respective PESOs, academic institutions, and DOLE regional offices.
She added that interested jobseekers may visit the www.philjobnet.gov.ph/jobfair-schedule, for regular updates on the DOLE’s year-round job fair schedules and venues.
