DOT-DOLE job fair for tourism industry workers set May 11, 2023
MANILA, Philippines — Tourism-related jobs will be up for grabs in the job fair organized by the Department of Tourism (DOT) and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) next month.
Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco said the DOT and DOLE will hold the third leg of the “Trabaho, Turismo, Asenso” job fair on May 11, 2023.
Frasco said that the job fair is aimed at helping the country’s economy “recover from the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“The Department of Tourism will continue to empower our tourism workforce by giving them access to jobs that will match their skills,” Frasco said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Such is the innate characteristic of the tourism industry. Its multiplier effect across various sectors can support job creation which is exactly what we wish to achieve as we eye to exceed our targets for this year. The more visitors we have, the more jobs we will create for our fellow Filipinos,” she added.
In the second leg of the job fair, Frasco said that the national government offered 8,185 tourism-related jobs in fairs conducted in Central Luzon (San Fernando, Pampanga) Western Visayas (Iloilo City) and Northern Mindanao (Cagayan de Oro City).
The job fairs facilitated by DOT and DOLE have so far offered a total of 16,485 employment opportunities to job seekers.
