Cagayanos flocked to the Cagayan Sports Complex last February 18-19, 2012 to seek for job opportunities at the Job fair staged by the Provincial Government of Cagayan (PGC) in coordination with the Provincial Employment Services Office (PESO).
Some 238 applicants coming from all over the province registered and applied for various job local and overseas job offerings. Six (6) overseas recruitment agencies and 13 local companies offered jobs such cooks, front desk clerks, hotel supervisors, customer service representatives, account clerks, custodians, distributor sales personnel, project engineers, mechanics, electrician and others.
According to Marites Taccad, PESO Coordinator, the job fair was a timely activity for many Cagayanos, especially the young graduates who are seeking for employment. “We are glad that this job fair was conducted early this year as it would give them various prospects to work in different fields. Their employment will also help in the economic growth of the province, especially that we also have available jobs offered by local companies here in the province,” she added.
The Job Fair is part of the Gobyerno Ti Umili (GTU) Caravan slated on the same dates. The caravan is a public service-oriented activity wherein the frontline offices of the PGC offered its services to the public. The GTU caravan was conceptualized in 2009 in line with Governor Alvaro T. Antonio’s goal to bring the local government closer to the Cagayanos. It seeks to impart a participatory form of local governance among the people.
Governor Antonio also celebrated his 60th birthday on the second day of the GTU caravan and he celebrated this special occasion with family, friends and fellow Cagayanos. MMTBaquiran
