In Luzon, the top available opportunities for candidates are:

  • Customer Service Representative, Sales, Teacher, Engineer, Administrative Assistant, System Developer, etc.

Meanwhile, in Visayas and Mindanao, jobseekers may apply for the roles such as:

  • Teacher, Administrative Assistant, Administrative Officer, Medical Staff, and more.

“In this career fair, we want to highlight different employment types available for our candidates as they are rethinking their approach to the concept of work. We thank DTI for trusting us to be their partner in this initiative, to provide jobs that are aligned with the applicants’ values and preferences,” shared JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip Gioca.

JobStreet affirms the country is experiencing “The Great Reshuffle,” a phase where employees leave their jobs in search of more fulfilling roles that provide the flexibility they are looking for. According to their 2021 Global Talent Survey, 67% of Filipino employees have chosen to prioritize their health and well-being over work.

Additionally, 53% of employees would prefer keeping a remote work set-up even if it entails additional 10 hours of extra work per week, and 41% would accept a lower salary as long as they can move to a more affordable location.

“Employees have many things to consider whether a job is worth it or not. Jobseekers are now taking their time to reassess not only their careers but their personal life. That is why, as a career partner, we aim to provide a venue where applicants can have the liberty to decide on which role they wish to pursue,” added JobStreet Philippines Marketing Head Kim Viray.
