A total of 909 job seekers were hired on the spot by partner private companies in the Mega Job Fairs held by the City Government of Caloocan in February, as part of the celebratory events for the city’s 62nd Anniversary.

The three job fairs were held on February 16, 22, and 29, and achieved a total hiring rate of 45 percent, way beyond the 30 percent success rate recommended as standard by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan commended the events for capturing the spirit of public service especially during the celebrations for Caloocan Day, but assured his constituents that more opportunities in the coming weeks will once again be available for them.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa ating Public Employment Service Office, sa DOLE, at sa mga katuwang nating pribadong kumpanya para sa pagtutulungan upang maging matagumpay ang pagdaraos ng mga mega job fair. Nakakatuwa po ito dahil kasabay ng pagdiriwang natin ng Cityhood Anniversary, konkretong epekto sa kabuhayan ng mga Batang Kankaloo naman ang hatid ng mga job fair,” Mayor Along stated.

“Asahan niyo po na hindi lang ito dahil may Caloocan Day ngayong buwan. Marami pa pong oportunidad galing sa pamahalaang lungsod kaya sana po ay sulitin ninyo ang mga ito,” he added.

The local chief executive likewise reiterated that the job fairs reflect the intention of his administration to provide decent, accessible, and adequate sources of income for all those willing to grab such opportunities.

“Uulitin ko po, hindi lang mga trabaho ang gusto nating maipagkaloob sa ating mga kababayan. Kasama rin po sa hangarin natin ang mga disente at sapat na negosyo at kabuhayan lalo na sa mga vulnerable sectors kagaya ng senior citizens, solo parents, at mga persons with disabilities,” Mayor Along said.
