Over 15,000 jobs available at DOLE Job Fair in SM Mindanao malls

ON MAY 1, SM City Davao, SM City Cagayan de Oro and SM City General Santos will be marking the Labor Day with a Job Fair in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment and the Public Employment Service Office. This is SM’s 8th year of partnership with the government agencies who are set to conduct the said fair nationwide.

Over 15,000 jobs will be offered by approximately 200 companies in the three Mindanao malls. Job postings will be both for domestic and overseas deployment. SM, its tenants and affiliates will also participate in the job fair.

In order to facilitate faster transactions on May 1, pre-registration is ongoing at SM Davao, SM GenSan and SM Cagayan de Oro. SM City Davao is also hosting a One Stop Shop where participants can process their pre-employment requirements.

The Job Fair is SM’s response to the call of government for private sectors to provide avenues and opportunities for gainful employment for the Filipino workers. Also, the event is SM’s way of giving opportunities to their affiliates and tenants to employ the best and the brightest labor force in the city and the neighboring municipalities. To date, the over 50 SM malls nationwide support at least 340,000 jobs.

DOLE XI Regional Director Atty. Joffrey Suyao is expected to grace the event at SM City Davao while DOLE XII Regional Director Ofelia B. Domingo will formally open the fair at SM City General Santos. A press conference at the Luxe Hotel will be conducted on April 29 for the SM City Cagayan de Oro event.

The Labor Day Job Fair will be simultaneously happening at the Annex Event Center of SM City Davao, Ground Floor Atrium of SM City Cagayan de Oro and Trade Halls 1 & 2 of SM City General Santos. A resume drop box will also be deployed at the Ground Floor of SM Lanang Premier.
