Twenty three (23) agencies offered more than 7,000 vacancies at the Government Job Fair held September 26 to 27, 2018 at SM City North EDSA Skydome, Quezon City.
Jointly organized by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Examination, Recruitment and Placement Office and the CSC National Capital Region, the event drew hundreds of jobseekers that underwent initial screening for vacant positions, including 3,000 Fire Officer I; 2,000 Jail Officer I; and 777 Revenue Officer I positions from the Bureau of Fire Protection, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, and the Bureau of Internal Revenue, respectively, for deployment to various areas nationwide.
The job applicants also attended the free seminars on career service examinations, Republic Act No. 6713 (Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees), and rules on the Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN), among other topics that prospective civil servants need to know.
CSC Regional Offices also conducted job fairs in their respective regions, except in Region 1, Caraga, and ARMM.
The Government Job Fair was one of the activities lined up in celebration of the 118th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary (PCSA) in September. Its aim was to help highly qualified civil service eligibles to land a job, and to encourage talented jobseekers to serve the public.
The annual PCSA seeks to commemorate the birth of the Philippine civil service system in 1900, as well as to celebrate the contributions and hard work of state workers nationwide. This year’s theme, “Lingkod Bayani: Maka-Diyos, Makatao, Makabayan”, aims to remind civil servants of their role in exemplifying love of God and country, building a citizen-centric government, and promoting malasakit in public service for their number one client—the Filipino people.
