Over 43,000 job vacancies will be up for grabs at the 2012 Kalayaan Job Fair, which is one of 13 Independence job fairs to be held across the archipelago. This June, the DOLE is holding 66 other job fairs in various provinces and regions, or a total of 79 fairs, 23 more than the total job fairs held in May.
"Thus, jobseekers who missed one of the 56 Labor Day Job Fairs across the country last 01 May can visit the Rizal Park on Tuesday and search for a suitable job," she said.

The schedule of these job fairs are also posted in the website of the Phil-Jobnet, the official on-line job search and job matching portal of the government, on the URL, http://phil-job.net.
Baldoz said the June 2012 job fairs will be conducted in convenient venues in cooperation with local government units, schools, the DOLE's tripartite partners, Public Employment Service Officers, and the private sector. It will be the regional offices that will spearhead these job fairs.
