Reviving Tourism and Boosting Employment: A Recap of the Northern Mindanao Tourism Job Fair

Northern Mindanao's recent tourism job fair held in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has been a huge success. The event was held for two days and saw participation from 75 employers across various industries such as hotel and lodging, retail and service, manufacturing, manpower services, and BPOs. The aim was to offer job opportunities to those who have been displaced due to the pandemic, with the hope of keeping the tourism industry alive by facilitating employment.

The job fair offered 2,500 open positions, with the top five vacancies being for financial advisers, customer service representatives, drivers, bus conductors, and accounting services. The event also featured cultural performances from the Kagay-an Performing Arts and Datu Pio Pataganao, which was a great opportunity to showcase the region's rich culture. Moreover, the event had a product exhibit of local crafts made by women's organizations, which was an excellent way to promote local artisans and their work.

National line agencies were also present at the event, with booths set up to make the processing of applicants' clearances and other essential paperwork easier and faster.

This job fair was a great opportunity for those who have been affected by the pandemic and are looking for work. It also served as a platform to showcase the region's culture and the excellent work done by local artisans. The partnership between the DOT and DOLE is commendable and should be replicated in other regions of the country to offer job opportunities to more Filipinos. We hope to see more such events in the future. (Photo Credit: APB/PIA-10)
