The online job fair organized by the Public Service Employment Office (PESO) will offer over 1,000 job roles, mostly coming from the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry. Customer and technical service representatives are the most in-demand positions.
The online job fair, which is hosted by PESO-Cebu City, will be held today, February 24, in time for the Cebu City Charter Day celebration.
“This is actually the formal launching and test run of our virtual job fair system at the PESO level. We have been challenging the PESOs really to explore conducting the online job fair at their respective LGUs (local government units) being one of the norms now as we have embarked on the so-called new normal,” DOLE-7 regional director Salome Siaton said in a statement.
Further, Siaton said that the agency, together with the Labor Department, is “now strengthening the use of technology in the delivery of the Employment Facilitation Program through having the conduct of virtual job fairs a regular activity.”
