Jobstreet hopes to repeat success of 2011 Career Fair


Last year’s Jobgantic Career Fair from one of the country’s most recognized job sites, Jobstreet, was hailed as the biggest job fair in Philippine history with over 220 exhibitors and nearly 65,500 jobseekers. This year, Jobgantic is back. Now it’s aiming for an even bigger number.

On June 22 and 23 at Halls 2, 3 and 4 of the SMX Convention Center, Jobstreet hopes to get 100,00 pre-registered attendees and 30,000 walk-in applicants. They have come up with a mean list of nearly 300 employers including top names like San Miguel Corporation, Ayala Land, Robinsons, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, SMART, Petron and ABS-CBN. If you’re looking to get a job at a BPO or IT-enabled company, you are still welcome, as companies like Accenture, Convergys, IBM and Sykes will also participate in the fair.

Aside from hundreds of booths set up by employers, you will also find some job assistance booths such as the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

Jobstreet will give pre-registered applicants Fast Lane access and some pointers on how to go about the fair.

Jobstreet is extremely hopeful for the success of its Career Fair, especially since last year’s fair was a total hit.

“The success of Jobgantic Career Fair 2011 has challenged us to come up with a bigger and better career fair this year… offering more jobs and more companies so that our attendees can truly find the job of their dreams at the event,” says Jobstreet Marketing Director Yoda Buyco.

Moreover, as of June 4, the site has recently reached a new record of over 80,000 available job postings.
