Sixty-six overseas and local companies have already signified interest to join the Iloilo provincial government job fair on July 2 being organized by the Public Employment Service Office (PESO).
Francisco Heler, PESO chief, said that there are 19 overseas companies, seven business process outsourcing, and 40 local companies that will be joining the job fair.
He said that the recruitment companies are looking for construction, hotel, information technology workers and others.
The companies have placed out more than 3,000 job orders for both local and overseas jobs.
Help desks will be put up by the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA), Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA), Philippine Health Insurance Corporation and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
Heler said they hope at least 50 percent of the applicants would be hired on the spot by the companies during the one day job fair. (PNA)
