Around 125 Ilonggos secured jobs in the December job expo of the Iloilo Public Employment Services Office (PESO) in a hotel.

The positions obtained by hired job seekers are sales specialist, cashier, service crew, production crew, sales representatives, and sales associates, said Francisco Heler, PESO-Iloilo chief, in an interview.

He said 1,318 Ilonggos flocked to the venue from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We have a total of 79 companies for local employment and 14 overseas companies that participated in the job fair,” he said.

Due to the inclement weather on Tuesday, Heler said three Manila-based companies were unable to fly to Iloilo.

“We have collected the resumes of the applicants that want to apply to these Manila-based companies and we will facilitate a Special Recruitment Activity in Iloilo some other time,” he said.

Iloilo-based jobs that were offered were online tutors, customer service representatives, nurses, restaurant crew, office staff, drivers, and maintenance personnel.

For jobs abroad, Heler said waiters, engineers, nurses, and plumbers were needed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; plumbers and technicians in Qatar; nurses and physical therapists in the United States of America; nurses and restaurant crews for the United Kingdom; masons, carpenters, and tillers for New Zealand; and scaffolders, welders, and spray painters for Japan.

Heler noted that 13 senior citizens and six persons with disabilities who applied at the job expo experienced convenient application as they were given the fast lanes.

The PESO chief said they had gathered feedback forms from participating companies and applicants to assure that concerns and suggestions will be well-taken to improve the next job fairs. (PNA)
