MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) has launched an online job fair which offers over 23,000 employment opportunities in CALABARZON-based ecozones.

In a statement, the PEZA said the virtual job fair launched in the Cavite Economic Zone is part of the agency’s Development for Outreach for Labor, Livelihood and Advancement of Resources or DOLLAR program, which aims to promote investments and employment in the ecozones.

There are 23,644 jobs available in locator firms in CALABARZON and these can be viewed by visiting http://workbank.com/peza.

The jobs are open to unemployed Filipinos and repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

There are also jobs available for fresh graduates and those who want work-from-home arrangements.

“COVID-19 cannot stop us from giving hope and opportunities to our fellow Filipinos to find livelihood in ecozones and locator-companies that continue to operate amid the pandemic and observe health and safety measures. We bring good news for job seekers, both former OFWs and those laid off during this global crisis,” PEZA director general Charito Plaza said.

Apart from the job fair, the PEZA also started the online job skills training under the DOLLAR program in CALABARZON.

“What we want to do is to provide our locator- companies with the needed labor force that they are looking for which, in turn, employs our skilled and hardworking Filipino workers. It is a win-win situation, staying true to our goal to think global and act local,” Plaza said.

PEZA unveiled the DOLLAR program in July.

Following the program’s launch, the agency is bringing the online job fair and skills training to different parts of the country.

As of Sept. 14, the online job portal had over 12,000 applicants across all the active jobs posted.

“Difficult times call for active bayanihan among us and this is one great example that we are proud to be a part of. We thank our locator-companies for their active cooperation as we seek to help provide jobs for more Filipinos and in turn contribute to the continuous growth of our economy,” Plaza said.
