DOLE to hold nationwide job fairs on June 12
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will hold nationwide job fairs on June 12 in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of Philippine independence.
Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said about 19 “Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan” or TNK job and business fairs would be organized in various local government units in 14 regions across the country.
“The nationwide job and business fairs aim to bring employment opportunities and entrepreneurship at the grassroots level,” Bello said in a statement on Friday.
Likewise, Bello said employers would be gathered in a single venue each region for the job fairs.
Bello advised jobseekers to prepare application requirements such as their resumes, 2×2 ID photos, employment certificates, diplomas, transcripts of records and authenticated birth certificates.
