CEBU, Philippines — Over 20,000 jobs are up for grabs at the upcoming Mynimo.com job fair on May 25, Saturday.

Thousands of jobseekers, from fresh graduates to experienced managers, are expected to flock to the event at the IC3 Convention Center in Mabolo, Cebu City.

Mynimo CEO Wesley Chiongbian announced a total of 22,176 job vacancies are available from 110 companies that have already signed up.

Cebu’s largest convention center has allowed the job fair to accommodate more employers.

The organizers indicated that 77% of the jobs at the event are for business expansion, while 23% are to address employee turnover.

Local and overseas opportunities will be available at the event.

Vacancies for local employment are in retail, manufacturing, tourism, education, information technology, logistics, construction, real estate, business process outsourcing, and healthcare, among others.

While overseas vacancies are expected to be in the food & beverage, manufacturing and medical industries.

Medium and large businesses comprise 67% of the participating companies, while 33% are from the small and micro enterprises.

The organizers also identified a total of 2,320 opportunities available for people with disabilities (PWDs). Among these are 1,800 jobs for applicants who are physically impaired and 520 for speech and hearing impaired candidates.

Opportunities for PWDs are at restaurant, retail, IT and BPO companies.

There will be designated express lanes to help ensure that PWDs will be given priority at the event.

The Mynimo job fair is organized with the support of the Cebu City government, Cebu provincial government, the Department of Labor and Employment, and the Philippines Overseas Employment Administration.

"We reached out to these organizations to assist us in spreading the word to as many job seekers as possible. This will help us fill the record number of vacancies that we will have at the upcoming Happy Jobs Fair,” said Chiongbian.

Aside from registering directly at the venue, the job fair also features an online registration system and will make use of QR code scanners to reduce paperwork and waiting times.  (FREEMAN)
