Jobstreet.com.ph is staging the country’s largest job fair to date on August 12 and 13 at the SMX Convention Center. Dubbed as the Jobgantic Career Fair 2011, the job fair will be offering more than 158,600 vacancies.
Companies like JP Morgan and Chase, IBM, Convergys, Accenture, and the Ayala Group are among the companies that will take part in the event. Of these employers, 75 percent are hiring for local employment while 25 percent are for overseas employment.
“This should not be a surprise to us because the call center/ business process outsource industry is seen to become the number one dollar remittance source by year 2016, overtaking the OFW remittances. And this is based on recent reports and with the present administration’s thrust of creating more jobs for the Filipinos in the country, it is more likely that most of these new jobs will be coming from this sunshine industry,” JobStreet.com’s national sales director Philip Gioca said.
