The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait, and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in cooperation with the Asian Cultural Network (ACN) will launch the second Kuwait Jobs Fair on Labor Day, May 1, 2010 from 10AM to 2PM at the Kuwait Hyatt Hotel in Maidan Hawally under the patronage of the Philippine Ambassador to the State of Kuwait Ricardo M. Endaya.
The job fair is being organized in coordination with various companies in Kuwait that require skilled, experienced, reliable and educated manpower to fill different job positions in their respective firms.
The event is intended to provide Filipino workers with various job skills and experience – many of whom were affected by the global economic downturn and were either made redundant or those whose contracts were not renewed – the opportunity to meet with company representatives and HR managers to get interviews for many of the available jobs on offer, and the chance to land better paying jobs.
The job fair also gives local employers the opportunity to fill their job requirements from an available pool of competent, educated, experienced and reliable Filipino workers and the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait is hoping to corner a large percentage of the projected 50,000 job openings for 2010.
Aside from hiring locally, representatives of participating companies will also entertain and receive applications from family members, relatives and friends of Filipino workers in Kuwait who wants to seek employment here.
Jobs Fair highlights:
1. Enable companies to fill worker shortage preferably with Filipino nationals.
2. Chance to interview and meet applicants face to face.
3. Evaluate applications and hire Filipino workers who qualify for job posts on the spot.
4. Gather application forms from Filipino workers who recommend other applicants.
5. Do away with unnecessary expense by hiring locally instead of from the Philippines.
6. The opportunity to meet and consult with Philippine labor officials on job hiring requirements.
7. Companies will have the opportunity to promote their firms during the Jobs Fair.
