Thousands of applicants, with hands holding their resumes and hearts filled with hope, participated in the “JOB FAIR 2011” at SM City Batangas. Around 57 companies offering local and overseas jobs were waiting for qualified applicants to go to their booths, pass their resumes, and get hired.
This year’s Labor Day Job Fair was organized by SM City Batangas in partnership with ABS-CBN Southern Tagalog and in cooperation with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), and WOWBatangas.com.
My feet kept on walking, my hands were busy typing, and my mouth was nicely explaining. Wow. I had a very tiring but a nice and fruitful day at the job fair.
After setting up our booth and a couple of minutes of waiting, the job fair finally began and participants quickly rushed to their target companies.
It was indeed a busy day for me. Being a website leader, I explained to my teammates how the website runs. I also have to take pictures of the job fair — the program proper, the employer and participants — which will be used in posting the details of the said event on our website.
I enjoyed seeing participants busy filling up their application forms, lined up to their perspective employers, and being interviewed. Moreover, I also enjoyed watching the PGT qualifiers perform on stage to entertain the job seekers while they are busy getting the job they want. They were Joy’s Diva and Marcelito Po Moy, the latter amazed the crowd with his dual voice.
Meanwhile, I also encouraged participants especially the employers to sign up on our sub website, jobs.wowbatangas.com. I didn’t imagine that I will have to talk with important people from different companies and also with the applicants.
Leaving the place with a positive curve on my face, I find the day very optimistic. Tiring yet very fruitful.
