The job fair will start 7 a.m. and will run until 4 p.m.
Among the participating companies are Business Process Outsourcing (BPOs), hotels and resorts, malls and retailers, and locators of the Mactan Export Processing Zone (MEPZ).
“Mas maayo ang atong mga jobseekers magdala sila ug daghan nga resume or biodata para daghan silang ma-applyan,” Francisco said.

He added that they are targeting 16 percent of the jobseekers to be hired-on-the spot (HOTS) during the activity.
