CITY OF MALOLOS – A total of 34 Bulakenyo jobseekers secured an employment on the spot during the Bulacan Trabaho Service (BTS) Caravan: Singkaban Job Fair 2023 last September 15 held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium here.
In partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment, the Provincial Government of Bulacan through the Provincial Youth, Sports, and Public Service Office BTS Caravan job fair offered 6,076 employment opportunities from 50 local employers and five overseas agencies to 614 job applicants.
Regional Director Geraldine M. Panlilio, DOLE RO3, encouraged the applicants that while not everyone will be hired, they should not lose hope instead, continue to improve themselves.
“If ever you will not be lucky, I hope this would not discourage you from doing your best upang i-improve n’yo pa ang inyong mga sarili,” Panlilio said.
Meanwhile, Bulacan Vice Governor Alexis C. Castro personally vouched for Bulakenyo jobseekers and urged the companies to consider them.
He assured that hiring individuals from Bulacan would be a decision they will not regret, emphasizing their reputation for being both diligent and trustworthy.
“Wala pong nagsisimula sa malaki, lahat nagsisimula sa maliit, mas masarap ang pakiramdam kapag unti-unti nakakamit natin ‘yung pangarap natin, unti-unti nagagawa natin ‘yung gusto natin marating sa buhay, at walang imposible kahit tayo ay may edad na, basta ang importante ay nagsisikap po tayo. Kagaya po ng sinabi ko na ang mga Bulakenyo, masisipag at mapagkakatiwalaan, basta tiyaga-tiyaga lang po tayo sa buhay at lagi lang po tayo magdadasal, walang mas ibang malakas kundi ang panalangin,” Castro said.
Simultaneously, an Awarding and Distribution ceremony for the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP) was also held where 511 beneficiaries received livelihood packages including welding machines, soap-making machine kits, hilot/wellness kits, sewing machines, food processing machines, and oven machines from DOLE and the PGB. ###
