Job fair for disabled persons on November 20

To all persons with disabilities in my country, this good news is for you. SM Foundation will again launch their Job Skills and and Livelihood Fair this November 20 from 10:00 am onwards. It will be held at the Activity Center of SM City North EDSA.

This activity is SM Foundation’s early Christmas gift to our countrymen who are still hunting for jobs. Available careers that are up for grabs are IT related, factory work and call center operations. Applicants must bring their resume and necessary credentials.

Aside from companies’ booths offering job opportunities, skills demonstration of various persons with disabilities who have excelled in their fields will be held simultaneously. MCCID students will be included in the presentation. They will present their skills in web designing, flash animation and graphic designing.

Makati City will again hold job fair for deaf persons

After the successful job fair held last September 18 at Makati City PESO Office, they will again hold the last of its series on Thursday, September 25 also on the same venue. The event is exclusively for Deaf persons only.

Applications are welcome, male or female, 18-35 years old, and at least a high school graduate. Please bring resume or bio-data.

I mentioned successful because based on the feedback I heard from the deaf who went, there were more than a hundred people who applied for jobs as compared to the first one. This according to PESO official, Mr. Manny Roldan. He said that more than 20 Deaf attended and applied for work last September 11.

Aside from Lamoiyan Corporation, makers of Happee toothpaste, companies who participated in the job fair were mostly for factory or blue-collar work.

So for those who were not able to join in the previous two job fairs, this is your last chance.

Special Job Fair for Filipino Deaf to be held in Makati City

Good news for Filipino deaf persons who currently don’t have work!

The Makati City government will again hold a job fair for them on September 18 and 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Makati Public Employment Service Office (PESO) at the New Makati City Hall.

Jobs are open to deaf and mute applicants, male or female, 18 to 35 years old, and at least high school level. Applicants must bring their resumé and/or bio-data with recent picture. Initial screening will be done at the Makati PESO Office.

Last Thursday (September 11), Makati City government held a successful job fair for the deaf and mute at the same PESO Office.

The Lamoiyan Corporation, maker of Hapee Toothpaste, is the main sponsor of the program, which provides opportunities for people with disabilities (PWDs), Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay said. The Filipino firm is set to hire 100 deaf and mute applicants. Hapee Toothpaste is the third biggest and the only Filipino made product being used in the country.

“Through these opportunities, we will not only help boost the Person with Disabilities’ self confidence, but also enable them to be self-reliant and productive members of the community,” Binay said in a statement released Wednesday.

I will feature Lamoiyan Corporation in my succeeding blog posts. Meanwhile, here is a ten-minute YouTube video tour of Makati City taken by Jay Sunico, a Filipino deaf actor in the mid-nineties. He guides us through the bustling and ultra-modern city in sign language. 🙂
