CEBU CITY – Over 4,000 overseas job openings will be available during the 2023 Overseas Job Fair in the Cebu province capital on Friday, to be hosted by the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW).

Lawyer Karl Frederick Arriola, DMW OIC regional director, said the 13 positions with the highest number of vacancies are nurses, teachers, accountants, waiters and waitresses, managers, technicians, electricians, painters, caregivers, welders, managerial positions, farmers, and laborers.

Employment seekers can start their hunt at 9 a.m. at The Atrium of Robinsons Galleria here.

Ten overseas recruitment agencies will offer 4,362 job vacancies for skilled and professional workers for Japan, Australia, United Arab Emirates, Germany, and other European and Asian countries.

“We urge the public, especially those who want to seek better employment opportunities overseas, to be wary and stay vigilant of the presence of illegal recruiters, who have already victimized so many. When in doubt, they can always visit the Department of Migrant Workers website and verify the legitimacy of the recruitment agency they are engaging with,” Arriola said in a statement.

Applicants are advised to be ready with the basic pre-employment requirements such as five copies of resume with photo, passport, pens, certificate of employment, certificates of trainings from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, professional license issued by the Professional Regulation Commission, and proof of educational qualification, either for senior high school or college.
