    JobStreet is aware that the pandemic has greatly affected many employees, with some even losing their jobs because the company that they are working for had to close shop. As such, JobStreet’s Virtual Career Fair embodies its longstanding commitment to providing meaningful employment opportunities, especially during these trying times.

    Jobseekers need not google “job openings near me” anymore because they can just head over and register at the Virtual Career Fair website.

    Job security is the top priority


    The number of employees affected by the pandemic is alarming. During the launch of the Virtual Career Fair, I found out that there were around 90,000 workers who have either lost their jobs or are in flexible work schemes because of the recent Enhanced Community Quarantine. This is according to data from
    the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

    With all the uncertainties around us, job seekers want job security more than financial compensation, as determined by JobStreet’s Global Talent Survey. In terms of job security, it’s the government sector that is often viewed by Filipinos as the most stable option. As such, government agencies are some of the top employers in JobStreet.

    Through the virtual career fair, JobStreet and CSC will bring Filipinos closer to their dream of entering government service. This joint initiative is also in commemoration of the CSC’s 121st Philippine Civil Service Anniversary, whose commitment is to hold an enjoyable, productive, and helpful virtual job fair this 2021.​

    “It has always been JobStreet’s advocacy to provide every Filipino with jobs that matter, and it’s an honor that the Civil Service Commission trusted us again to be a part of this initiative to help candidates rebuild themselves and find an opportunity to be of service to our nation,” shared JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip Gioca.
