DOLE-Caraga’s Job Fair get 410 newly-hired workers

BUTUAN CITY -- Four hundred ten jobseekers were Hired-On-the-Spot (HOTS) during the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Caraga’s 2022 Kalayaan Trabaho, Negosyo at Kabuhayan (TNK) Job and Business Fair in two venues – Robinsons Place Butuan and Naliyagan Grounds, Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur.

Seventy-five employers offered 21,340 job vacancies: 2,406 from 65 local companies and 18, 934 from 11 overseas recruitment agencies. A total of 1,189 applicants were registered: 1,080 local and 109 overseas. Out of those registered, 915 got qualified: 880 for local employment and 35 overseas jobs. The Job Fair recorded a HOTS rate of 44.8% which is beyond and above the regional target of 15%.


To ensure the safety and health of both employees and employers, the newly-hired workers received from DOLE Caraga free RT-PCR coupons which they can avail of from any of the department’s partner testing centers: MJ Santos Hospital, Adela Serra Ty Memorial Medical Center, and Caraga Regional Hospital. 


Ms. Lala Cabidog, one of the first applicants hired on the spot, expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the department. "Nagpasalamat ko sa DOLE job fair kay naa na koy trabaho. Unta magpadayon pa ni inyong activity ug daghan pa na mga jobless ang inyong matabangan ug pangitag trabaho (I am really thankful to DOLE’s job fair because I now have a job. I hope this kind of activity will continue to help more jobless Filipinos get employed)," the new sales clerk of Robinsons Supermarket said.

In his opening message, DOLE Caraga Regional Director Joffrey M. Suyao extended his appreciation to Butuan City Mayor Hon. Ronnie Vicente C. Lagnada, represented by Butuan City Councilor Hon. Joseph Omar O. Andaya for partnering with DOLE in staging the TNK event in Butuan and the local and overseas employers for their continuous support to DOLE’s employment facilitation programs. He also lauded DOLE Caraga's partner agencies for providing pre-employment and other frontline services to the job seekers and the general public.


"I would like to thank the entire DOLE Caraga family and our partners for the support in making the 2022 Kalayaan TNK Job and Business Fair an astounding success. We hope that our collective efforts in facilitating productive and decent employment for the Filipino citizens will result to a vibrant labor market and a stronger economy in the region," RD Suyao said.
