SM City San Lazaro in partnership with Department of Labor and Employment successfully held their Job Fair event yesterday in time for the May 1st celebration of Labor Day. SM Supermalls and its 46 branches nationwide support over 200,000 jobs and this year at the SM City San Lazaro, more than 60 companies participated the event with 6,000 available jobs, ready to accept thousands of job seekers during the event which started at 10 a.m. and lasted until 5 p.m.
SM City San Lazaro’s Mall Manager Leah Casamayor shared with us that they had an opening crowd of 600-800 for their 6th Annual Job Fair. In the afternoon, we heard an unofficial report that this year’s job fair garnered double percentage increase compared with last year’s number of job seekers.
“DOLE have been conducting this yearly job fair and we simply monitor the activities together with our partner, SM Supermalls, the progress of this event. Hopefully, there will be people who will land more employment through this job fair,” said Ruby Daquigan, Supervising Labor Employment Officer, Manila Head Office, Department of Labor and Employment (NCR).
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.
