Cebu Pacific, United Filipino Global Host Job Fair in Tacloban

Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), the Philippines’ leading carrier, on Saturday hosted a job fair in Tacloban as an early celebration of Migrant Workers Day, together with select government agencies and a non-governmental organization (NGO).

The Overseas Job Fair 2024 aimed to address the employment needs of Filipinos in various sectors, including healthcare, hospitality, accounting, and skilled trades. The event offered over 5,000 job opportunities in Australia, Japan, Malaysia, the Middle East, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

During the event, CEB shared its ongoing partnership with the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) group United Filipino Global (UFG), which includes initiatives such as mercy flights, scholarships, and information campaigns designed to support overseas workers and their families.

“CEB and UFG are both committed to uplift and support our modern-day heroes, the OFWs. By working together, we can make a bigger impact in the communities we serve,” said Carmina Romero, CEB Director for Corporate Communications.

The initiative builds on the success of last year’s job fair in Cebu, where CEB, UFG, and key government agencies joined forces to provide employment opportunities and host a series of informative talks.

“We organized this job fair to provide livelihood opportunities for the people of Tacloban and nearby areas. We thank our partners for joining us in our efforts to bring hope to those who aspire for a brighter future through gainful employment,” said Gemma Sotto, UFG Chairperson.

The Overseas Job Fair 2024 was organized by the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) Region VIII in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Region VIII, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Region VIII, Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Region VIII, the City of Tacloban, Pag-IBIG Fund, Social Security System (SSS), Robinsons Malls, UFG, and CEB.
