Manila Bulletin, the country’s leading newspaper, is hosting a job fair on August 12, 2022 from 9am to 5pm at Manila Hotel’s Tent City.
The job fair aims to support businesses that have already reopened and are now rebuilding their workforces to offer more products and services to the public.
It also seeks to help fresh and recent graduates, as well as those exploring options other than the ones they are currently pursuing, to find the jobs that best suit them.
Barbie Atienza, Head of External Affairs and Human Resources at MB, said the MB Job Fair 2022 will serve both potential employers and workers as the country continues to suffer from the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are coordinating with more than a dozen schools to help us reach their graduates and graduates so they can come and participate. Meanwhile, we also invite companies from different industries to open their doors and entertain applicants during the job fair for a possible placement,” said Atienza.
Ruben Bulaong, MB’s senior assistant vice president for sales, said MB has already reached out and invited several companies, particularly MB Classified Ads customers, to come and participate in this activity.
“We expect more than a dozen or two of them to attend. We hope companies from hospitality, banking, BPO and various industries will attend the job fair,” Bulaong said.
This would mean a multitude of positions to be filled during the one day event. This can include writers, graphic designers, researchers, hotel staff such as receptionists, waiters, maids, engineers, bankers, coders and many more.
While the invitation is open to all, the job fair is by prior registration only, while respecting security protocols.
Job seekers can register via the mbjobfair.mb.com.ph website. After completing the online information sheet and attaching a copy of their CV, they will receive a confirmation with the relevant applicant code and time slot for each of them. Applicants are requested to appear in business attire and to bring and present their vaccination card and other relevant documents such as SSS, Pag-IBIG and PhilHealth.
