Labor department aids displaced Davao BPO workers

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has spearheaded a two-day job fair aimed at assisting the nearly 3,000 business process outsourcing (BPO) workers displaced by the mall fire in Davao City. DOLE 11 communication officer Kriztja Marae Labrador said the job fair was part of the agency’s intervention to help them land new jobs after a fire last December that damaged a four-story mall and killed 38 workers. For local employment, job applicants chose from positions in BPO, or as sales representatives, management trainees, service crew, field coordinator, stock clerks, assistant store managers, marketing professionals, online English tutors, and salesmen. For abroad, jobs available included those for nurses, cleaners, service crew, waiters/waitresses, household workers services, laborers, merchandisers, technicians, barista, and engineers.
