Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Rosalinda Dimapils-Baldoz annoucned recently the job fairs during the Christmas season, which promise thousands of decent job matching opportunities for graduates and other jobseekers.
Republic Act 8759, or the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Act, directs that job fairs shall be conducted “periodically all over the country to bring together in one venue jobseekers and employers for immediate matching.”
The Public Employment Service Office (PESO) is a non-fee charging multi-employment facility or entity established or accredited by DOLE in Local Government Units (LGUs), State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Community Based Organizations (CBOs), pursuant to Republic Act 8759 otherwise known as the PESO Act of 1999, and its Implementing Rules and Regulations.
The PESOs are linked to the Regional Offices of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) for coordination and technical supervision, and to the DOLE Central Office, to constitute the National Employment Network.
