The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) has officially launched its online job fair under the Development Outreach for Labor, Livelihood, and Advancement of Resources (Dollar) Program.
One of the objectives of the Dollar Program is linking Filipinos, especially displaced overseas Filipino workers due to the Covid-19, to PEZA-registered companies located in over 400 economic zones nationwide.
The online job fair can be accessed through www.workbank.com/dc/peza-online-job-fair.
In his fifth State of the Nation Address on July 27, President Rodrigo Duterte assured OFWs of government’s support to help them and their families during the pandemic.
“PEZA is strongly committed and unrelenting to its efforts to promote investment and employment that will benefit the Filipinos amidst the pandemic. With the support of our 4,584 registered companies, PEZA initiates this job expo, which informs Filipinos that there are thousands of jobs awaiting in our different types of ecozones,” PEZA Director-General Charito Plaza said.
According to PEZA, 69,081 job openings across the country will be available under the virtual job fair – 23,644 jobs vacancies are in Region 4-A, Pampanga and Metro Manila; 14,126 jobs in Visayas and Mindanao; and 2,500 jobs in Baguio and other locators in north Luzon.
PEZA said there will be 28,811 jobs that will be added in the online job fair, which came from newly approved investments between May 21 and July 10.
Currently, there are 15,175 job openings posted in the Dollar program online job fair website.
