A TOTAL of 551 applicants were hired on the spot at the Mega Job Fair hosted by the City Government of Caloocan, in partnership with 49 private companies, at the Caloocan City Sports Complex.

City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan thanked the city’s Public Employment Service Office (PESO) for making the event possible and expressed his excitement for the newly-employed residents.

“Natutuwa po ako na maraming mga Batang Kankaloo ang hired on the spot. Congratulations po sa inyo,” Mayor Along said.

Mayor Along vowed to remain committed to his objective to help provide a decent and comfortable life for his constituents through the creation of more programs like the job fair.

“Abangan po ninyo ang iba pa nating nakalatag na proyekto. Bahagi po ng aking pangako noong kampanya na mabigyan ng trabaho at kabuhayan ang ating mga kababayan kaya makakaasa po kayo na tuloy-tuloy ang aksyon at malasakit ng aking administrasyon para Lungsod,” the City Mayor stated.

The city’s Mega Job Fair held on Friday exceeded the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) target 30 percent success rate, wherein 34.6 percent of the more than 1500 attendees were employed.
