148,461 jobseekers register in CSC’S online career fair
ALMOST 150,000 applicants have registered in the ongoing online job fair of the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
CSC said a total of 148,461 jobseekers filled out the personal data sheet and uploaded it to Jobstreet.com, which served as their private sector partner in the conduct of the Government Online Career Fair (GOCF) from September 14 to 16, 2020.
The registration will allow the said participants to apply for the 2,452 available employment opportunities from government offices during the weeklong GOCF.
CSC said the top 10 most viewed available positions in the GOCF are administrative assistant; administrative assistant III (secretary II) (Internal Audit Service); staff officer II; administrative assistant II; staff officer I; engineer II; revenue officer I (non-assessment); administrative assistant II; administrative assistant 1 (secretary); and engineer II.
Meanwhile, the government agencies, which got the most interests among the jobseekers are the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF), Land Bank of the Philippines, Department of Education (Deped), Development Bank of the Philippines and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).
CSC Commissioner Aileen Lizada appealed to participating government agencies to fast-track their screening process of the applications they have received.
“This will allow them [applicants] to know if they still lack requirements, or if they are qualified for the position [they have applied for],” Lizada said.
CSC held the GOCF, which started on Monday and will be ending on September 18, 2020, as part of its observance of the 120th anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service.
