THE pre-registration for the first three legs of the Trabaho, Turismo, Asenso! Philippine Tourism Job Fair, the flagship employment program of the Department of Tourism (DoT) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE), was proven effective for prospective job seekers, according to Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia-Frasco. “To further assist our kababayans and make their job-seeking experience more seamless at the Trabaho, Turismo, Asenso! Philippine Tourism Job Fair, the DoT and DoLE have opened the pre-registration for all three legs of the fair, covering one step of the application process. This enables the job seekers to focus instead on the core of the event, getting to know the participating establishments and companies and determining the career openings they wish to pursue,” Secretary Garcia-Frasco said in a statement. Some 7,510 job vacancies, from 147 establishments across the three major locations from the accommodation establishments, travel and tour services, Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) facilities and organizers, tourist transport operators, health and wellness services, restaurant/food service and other tourism-related establishments were opened to interested applicants during the initial run of the job fair.
