At least 70,000 local and overseas jobs will be open to applications in 22 job fair sites in 16 regions across the country on Independence Day, the Department of Labor and Employment said on Wednesday.

The DOLE said the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan job and business fairs were organized to commemorate the 121st anniversary of the Proclamation of Philippine Independence on June 12.

According to the Bureau of Local Employment, a total of 560 employers – 461 local and 99 overseas – will bring with them 68,893 local and overseas jobs.

Vacancies of local jobs will include production machine operators, production or factory workers, customer service representatives, call center agents, tailors, sales clerks, cashiers, delivery crew, service crew, and marketing officers.

For overseas employment, the top vacancies will include cleaners, professional nurses, servers, service crew, company drivers, registered midwives, staff nurses, English teachers for Japan, janitorial staff, baristas, technicians, and nursing aides.

The overseas job orders are for Germany, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Japan.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III advised jobseekers to visit any of the job and business fairs in their areas to facilitate their search for employment, as many employers would be gathered in just one venue.

Bello advised jobseekers to be ready with several copies of their resume or curriculum vitae; 2 x 2 ID pictures; certificate of employment for those formerly employed; diploma and/or transcript of records; and authenticated birth certificate.
