Why you should attend POEA Job Fairs
Attending job fairs from POEA have more advantages than disadvantages for both employers and applicants. Companies can screen lots of applicants in one day, they can do the hiring on the spot if they deemed the applicant to be deserving of the job offer. The same works with applicants, they can be hired on the same day if they impressed enough the hiring personnel.
Usually, job fairs are being attended by numerous companies and licensed manpower agencies whose intention is to really acquire talents. They also spend time and money setting up attractive stalls in the venue to get attention from participants. This means that in just one day applicants can submit their resumes and come face to face with more than 20 hiring personnel. On a regular day, it is impossible to visit that number of HR personnel from different companies because of different constraints. This saves a lot of time and transportation costs on the side of applicants.
There is a saying that goes like this, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” During the job fair, applicants will surely meet HR managers, employers, and fellow job seekers who are probably employed in their present company. If the applicants manage to leave a good impression to these people, he/she can get recommendations from them once there are vacancies on their respective companies.
Free workshops are also available during the job fair. Applicants can take advantage of it to learn and gather the information that they can utilize to find the jobs that they dreamed of in the future.
If POEA organizes job fairs for overseas employment ( abroad ), DOLE or Department of Labor and Employment, on the other hand, organize Job fairs for local employment. I suggest you visit the official website of DOLE (www.ble.dole.gov.ph) for their updated job fair schedules and venues nationwide.
