SOME 1,200 jobs will be available at a job fair the Public Employment Service Office (Peso) in Davao City is organizing on March 28 at the Davao City Recreation Center.
Peso-Davao City manager Lilibeth D. Pantinople, in an interview with Sun.Star Davao, said there will be around 700 available overseas jobs and 500 local jobs.
"This job fair will be somehow different since it is catering to a very specific sector, the services sector," she said.
Pantinople said 10 local companies, most of which are malls, and four foreign recruitment agencies, have already confirmed participation.
She said the demand for workers in the services sector are very high, both local and overseas.
"We also conducted an interview with many companies and they said they are looking for graduates who have a bachelor’s degree that is in relation to the services sector, like hospitality and restaurant management," Pantinople said.
She said this is held in partnership with the City Government of Davao and the office of Councilor January Duterte and in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment.
