Hyping two of the most famed and largest social networking sites, Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said that jobseekers may now get updated with the latest events all set for the Labor Day celebration on May 1 online, especially the conduct of the nationwide Job and Livelihood Fair, a news release posted on the DOLE website said.
This, as the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) launches its official social network accounts, Facebook and Twitter, for Labor Day 2011, it added.
Baldoz said that utilizing such online networks would greatly augment DOLE’s efforts to maximize the publicity of the array of events for the Labor Day celebration, and heighten the awareness of all jobseekers, and the general public, about the programs and services that they can avail during the conduct of the Labor Day activities.
Through Facebook and Twitter, jobseekers, for instance, will know that they need to pre-register with Phil-JobNet through which they will be pre-screened by employers who will participate at the Fair on Labor Day.
“This will give them higher chance of landing a job when they present themselves to the participating employers during the Job Fair,” Baldoz said.
