Leading online job portal JobStreet by SEEK, in partnership with the Philippine’s Civil Service Commission (CSC), encourages job seekers to join the Government Online Career Fair 2022 happening on September 19 to 23, 2022, in line with their commitment to providing future-ready government jobs for Filipinos, particularly fresh graduates.
Over 20,000 available government jobs both on the JobStreet platform and on the Government Online Career fair are up for grabs, comprised of various roles such as Guidance Counselor, Administrative Aide, Revenue Officer, Engineer, Planning Officer, Medical Officer, Nurse, etc.
Interested applicants can also explore other vacancies for Project Development Officer, Accountant, Auditor, Executive Assistant, and Information Technology Officer, among others.
The Government Online Career Fair is also in celebration of the 122nd anniversary of civil service in the Philippines and will be joined by more than 120 government agencies including the Department of Health (DOH), Department of Environment and Natural Resource (DENR), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Commission on Elections (COMELEC), Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC), and many more.
“For two years since the pandemic, JobStreet and the Civil Service Commission have successfully helped Filipinos find government jobs through online channels. With this year’s online career fair, we hope we’ll be able to empower more candidates with future-ready opportunities,” shared JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip Gioca.
With many government jobs open for candidates, JobStreet by SEEK underscores that this is an opportune time for candidates, including fresh graduates, to establish a steady career progression and networking opportunities while finding a sense of purpose through helping the nation. Furthermore, the job portal shares that many government job roles offer a work-life balance which is currently a top priority for most Filipino applicants.
Aside from convenient job applications, the event will also allow candidates to learn more from the webinars conducted by career experts throughout the duration of the job fair. Guest speakers will tackle topics related to working for a digital job, building a website, career in government, government job flexibility, among others,
Empowering the “lockdown generation”
In its third Government Online Career Fair with CSC, JobStreet by SEEK aims to help and empower fresh graduates who have been facing numerous labor market challenges due to the pandemic.
With more Filipinos still looking for jobs that fit their lifestyle and preference, stiff competition awaits fresh graduates as they enter the workforce, not to mention the returning experienced and even migrant workers. Moreover, young jobseekers in the Philippines face multiple labor market risks such as severe disruptions in education and training, low earnings, limited employment prospects, and magnified job search constraints—all on top of the need for digital tools and devices among employees to secure job opportunities.
“While digital tools and innovation can help continue education and upskilling and is an advantage for the youth, there’s much more that is needed to be done for our country to catch up when it comes to internet access, speed, and affordability. The youth needs to be supported in their journey to having access to job opportunities,” shared JobStreet Philippines Head of Marketing Kim Viray.
JobStreet and CSC will be offering 2,000 on the GOCF platform, and roughly 20,000 on the JobStreet Philippines platform, open for fresh graduates nationwide.
Top roles include Engineers, Administrative Officers, Revenue Officers, Nurses, Executive Assistants, Accountants, Auditors, and IT officers.
Since 2020, JobStreet and CSC through the Government Online Career Fair have brought together over 200,000 participants and more than 120 government agencies.
