Forty-eight (48) local companies and five (5) international companies partnered with the city government and DOLE and offered 3,860 jobs to individuals looking for jobs.

Mayor Francis Zamora and Congresswoman Bel Zamora both thanked the PESO, the national government agecies and the participating local and overseas companies for making the event successful.

“Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa ating PESO Head, Richard Matriano at sa lahat ng empleyado ng PESO, of course we would also like to thank Director Lilibeth Caraga of DOLE-PAMAMARISAN na laging tumutulong sa atin, sila rin po ang nagbibigay sa atin ng TUPAD at ng iba pang employment opportunities dito sa San Juan, we also have Pagibig, Philhealth, SSS, PSA, andito din po ang OWWA at DMW so pumunta po kayo dito and all your concerns may be addressed by the government agencies that are represented here,” Congresswoman Bel Zamora said.

“We are very grateful for the support of our partner local and international companies in making job opportunities accessible to every San Juaneño. We are also thankful to the national agencies for their respective help desks that provided assistance and other career-related services to the jobseekers, this is literally a “one-stop shop” job fair for the San Juaneños,” the mayor said.
