Looking for your dream job? Then you might find it at the biggest nationwide job fair happening at the SMX Convention Center and at select SM malls.
SM Supermalls, the primary and official partner of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), is holding a job fair at the SMX Convention Center Manila on April 30.
Job fairs will also take place on May 1 at SM City Grand Central, SM Southmall, SM City BF Paranaque, SM City Sucat, SM City Baguio, SM City Marilao, SM City Pampanga, SM City Olongapo Central, SM City Tuguegarao, SM City Cabanatuan, SM CDO Downtown Premier, SM City Davao, and SM City San Jose del Monte.
The job fair is open to all job seekers, including fresh graduates, returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), and those who have been displaced from their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
DOLE has invited various companies to participate in the job fairs, offering a wide range of job opportunities in different industries such as retail, hospitality, business process outsourcing (BPO), and the like.
During the job fairs, job seekers can submit their resumes and undergo initial interviews with the participating companies. Some companies even conduct on-the-spot job offers, which means that qualified applicants can receive job offers on the same day.
In recent years, local government units (LGU) and the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) have also embraced online job fairs, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic when physical gatherings were restricted.
This year, they strategically selected SM City Marikina and SM City Lipa (May 1) under LGU, and SM City Roxas (April 25 and May 1), SM City Bacolod (May 5 and 6), SM City Puerto Princesa (May 1), SM Cherry Antipolo (May 12), and SM City Novaliches (May 1) under PESO by connecting job seekers with employers and promoting employment opportunities.
