The DOLE will be joined by members of the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) comprising DOLE attached agencies—Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO), National Conciliation Mediation Board (NCMB), National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RWTPB), Employees Compensations Commission (ECC), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and POEA.

The different city and municipal local government units, through their respective Public Employment Service Offices (PESOs), and other allied-partner agencies will also be present.

DOLE Regional Director Atty. Ana Dione, in an interview with local media, urged jobseekers to be fully prepared and take opportunity in applying for jobs.

“Our region-wide job fairs in Central Luzon is our major activity in line with the country’s commemoration of the 118th Independence Day celebration. We want to make it easy and convenient for our jobseekers as they find jobs during the fairs,” Dione said.

She also reminded the job applicants to come prepared with proper attire and bring with them multiple copies of their resumes, certificates of employment, transcript of records, clearance, photos, and other pertinent pre-employment documents needed by employers.

DOLE-Technical Support and Services Division for Employment and Welfare Chief Alejandro Inza Cruz also added that jobseekers may already pre-register before June 12.

“To save time for jobseekers, they may now start filling-up their Skills Registration System Forms to pre-register to the PhilJobnet web. They may likewise visit their nearby PESOs in their areas to register,” Inza Cruz said.

This year’s observance of the month-long Independence Day celebration in Central Luzon is anchored on the theme, “Pagkakaisa, Pag-aambagan, Pagsulong.” (DOLE)
