100 firms to offer 3,000 jobs at Caloocan job fair

Around 3,000 domestic and overseas jobs will be offered to Caloocan City residents today (Thursday) at the continuation of Mayor Oscar G. Malapitan’s regular “Mega Job Fair.”

Nolan B. Sison, officer in charge of the city government’s Public Information Office, told the BusinessMirror that more than 100 business establishments have confirmed to the office of Malapitan that they will participate in today’s job fair.

He said Malapitan is expecting a big number of applicants will be hired, while those who will fail will be included in the livelihood training program for them to gain knowledge on how to put up a small business, such as food processing, small eatery and retail of rice.

The livelihood training program is another project of Malapitan to help poor Caloocan City residents in starting a business.


Today’s Mega Job Fair is the third for the year.

In January  the fair offered 2,000 jobs, although only about 200 individuals were hired on the spot.

But several days later, Sison said around 1,000 more were also hired by different companies after they managed to complete and produce the necessary requirements.

Last month the 218 were hired on the spot by various business establishments. About 1,341 were told to return later after they have completed all the requirements, Sison said.

The Mega Job Fair started in 2013.
