ILOILO City – More than 400 jobseekers flocked to the first ever “Government Job Fair” of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) in Western Visayas.
The two-day job fair, which opened Friday afternoon last week, offered between 200 to 300 vacant positions from 16 participating regional line agencies, according to Leo Jamorin, chief human resource specialist CSC Region 6’s Public Assistance and Liaison Division.
Ninety-five percent of the vacant positions were plantilla or permanent positions and the remaining were contract of service and job order positions.
Held at SM City Iloilo, the job fair was among the highlights of the 118th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary here.
“We wanted to provide transparent and open job vacancies from government agencies because most people are not aware of the job postings of the government, said Jamorin.
“This is another way of providing opportunity to those interested to become public servants. Last year we started publishing vacant positions in the various government agencies through our website (csc.gov.ph),” he added.
The job fair ended on Saturday.
Among the participating agencies were the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Department of Education (DedpEd), Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Labor and Employment , and National Commission for Indigenous People, among others. (PNA)
