Jobstreet.com, the number one job site in the country, is about to make careers fly with the biggest career fair in like, forever: The Jobstreet Jobgantic Career Fair 2011 is happening on August 12 and 13 at the SMX Convention Center Halls 2 and 3 in Pasay City.
Think of it as their little way to give the biggest career break there for all jobseekers who want to leap straight up to the field of their dreams: Marketing, Broadcasting, Culinary, whatever puts a new spark in your work life.
With an estimated 40,000 jobseekers in Metro Manila alone, one would suppose that employers would never be able to meet the country’s dire need for job openings. But then again, a total of 158,000 job vacancies in various fields of specializations both local and overseas are up for grabs in this monumental event. We say the times are good.
Also present in this job fair are representatives from government agencies such as DOLE, POEA, TESDA, and SSS, all of which are invited to provide labor assistance for a smoother and more accessible job processing for applicants.
An even better news: the earliest and best of them jobseekers has the chance to get instantly processed and possibly hired on the spot by any of the 250 participating companies present during the career fair. Some of them you might be familiar with – IBM, San Miguel Corporation, and Ayala Group of Companies. Sounds awfully good, no?
It’s basically the biggest job fair of the year – the sole reason why this event is worth attending to. So on behalf of everyone who’s about to attend Jobgantic Career Fair: thank you in advance, Jobstreet!
