Magpet mayor Efren Pinol said the jobs fair, the 1st Lingkod Bayan Jobs Fair during its 43rd foundation celebration in August, is intended for residents of the town’s 37 barangays, particularly those in the hinterlands. But the mayor said applicants from the neighboring towns of Magpet are also welcome to join “but priority must be given to our constituents especially those coming from the rural barangays.”
He said Manila-based employment agencies have already signified their interest in joining the first ever jobs fair in Magpet.
“These employment agencies will accept applications and process various documents of the interested and qualified job seekers abroad,” he said.
Pinol said most of the employment agencies participating in the fair need domestic helpers to be deployed in the Middle East.
He also said domestic helpers are urgently needed in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Kuwait, Dubai, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Taiwan, Brunei, Qatar and Australia. (Williamor A. Magbanua)
