The Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of Los Baños conducted a mini job fair on August 29 in the PESO Gabaldon Building at Brgy. Timugan.
According to Municipal PESO Manager Gliceria Trinidad, about 70 job seekers from Los Baños and nearby municipalities took part in job fair themed “Trabaho Para Sa’yo: Mini Job Fair 2012”.
Six companies namely Savemore, Alliance Mansols Inc., Samsung, Toshiba, KGBPhils, and AZ Contracting System took part in the fair looking for applicants for the positions of production operators, drivers, and call center agents.
The job seekers underwent mathematical examinations and interviews. “This job fair is a big help for applicants like me because we will be more productive once we get hired and start to work,” said Roldan Bugtong, a 21-year-old applicant from Brgy. Malinta.
“This job fair serves as a big help to our constituents specially when they get hired to their desired job but the only problem that they will encounter after being accepted by the company as an applicant is the money to be used in their medical examinations,” Trinidad explained.
