CITY OF MALOLOS– Two hundred fourteen Bulakenyos went looking for jobs and went home with a sure employment as they were hired on the spot during the Trabaho Negosyo Kabuhayan (TNK) Fiesta Caravan Job and Business Fair Local and Overseas Employment held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city last Tuesday.
Governor Daniel R. Fernando thanked the 53 local and four overseas employers that joined the job fair for giving the 2,946 registered Bulakenyos a chance to get their dream job.
He also shared to the Bulakenyo applicants that they would be prioritized on the jobs brought by the huge developments in the province including the Bulacan airport and the Mega City in Pandi, Balagtas, and Bocaue.
“Kasabay ng mga parating na mga developments ang pagdating din ng mga trabaho para sa mga Bulakenyo. Huwag po tayong masiraan ng kalooban. Laban lang po tayo. Pasasaan ba at makakaraos din tayong lahat,” the governor said.
Fernando also vowed that the Provincial Government of Bulacan through the Provincial Youth, Sports, and Public Employment Service Office will continue to conduct monthly job and livelihood fairs to help Bulakenyos find jobs.
Meanwhile, Jhonavie Pagtalunan, a previous scholar of PGB and a Theater Arts undergraduate, tearfully thanked iQor, a BPO company, for hiring her on the spot.
“Malaking tulong po ito sa family ko, para sa mga medical bills nila. It will also help me para ma-boost pa ‘yung confidence ko and ‘yung English ko,” Pagtalunan said.
Some of the industries that offered vacancies to the Bulakenyos were logistics, Business Processing Outsourcing, wholesale and retail trade, construction, consumer goods, sales and marketing, automotive sales and services, security services, transportation, water industry, information technology, janitorial services, education, health and wellness, finance industry, food industry, and manufacturing.
