Based on past records, most job seekers participating the yearly Job Fair in SM City San Lazaro have their shares of those coming from nearby key cities like Pasay and Quezon City area, according to Allan Ayento, SM City San Lazaro, Marketing Department.

There are about 10-15% job seekers who got hired on the spot, and that is a good impression of what is happening during our job fairs,” said Arvin Ang, AVP Marketing, SM City San Lazaro.

Some of the applicants came from as far as Pangasinan and Sorsogon, North and Luzon regions, respectively, to try their luck and get immediate hiring opportunities.
