To not add to the cost and ensure the safety of job-seekers, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has made an online job fair “Balik Trabaho” for those who have lost their jobs now with the pandemic.
About 27,337 job vacancies were offered at the online job fair of 744 companies.
For those who want to apply, here are the steps:
- Just go to the Mynimo website (https://mynimo.com/back to work)
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and provide the required information to register
- You can make a resume or upload your own resume, so a digital copy of other documents must also be prepared
The online job fair is until December 11, so you should always check the email.
The DOLE, on the other hand, noticed that the number of jobs with flexible work arrangements, such as rotation or work from home, is increasing.
Others are getting hourly wage calculations, and there are project-based job offers.
If you are looking for a job abroad, go to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) website and register for online services.
Those who are already registered can apply at the job fair on December 10 and 11. Most job vacancies are for health care and factory workers but also construction and foodservice.
DOLE online job fair offers over 27,300 vacancies
DOLE, on the other hand, ensured that all participating employers and recruitment agencies were strictly screened to ensure that the job offer was legitimate and orderly.
Unemployment decreased further in October to 3.3 million from a record-high 7.2 million last April as the economy slowly recovers from the crisis brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
National Statistician Claire Dennis Mapa reported Thursday that the unemployment rate of 8.7% was recorded in October. This is equivalent to 3.8 million adult Filipinos without jobs or a source of income during the period.
“[Nasa] 3.8 milyong Pilipino na nasa labor force ay walang trabaho o negosyo nitong nakaraang October 2020. Ito ay mas mataas ng 1.8 milyon kaysa sa bilang noong October 2019 na nasa 2.0 milyong indibidwal na walang trabaho o negosyo,” Mapa said, citing the results of the Philippine Statistics Authority’s (PSA) July 2020 Labor Force Survey.
