Out of the 653 registered applicants, forty-two (42) were hired on-the-spot during the Job and Business Fairs at Provincial Capitol Gym, Butuan City last June 14, 2017 in collaboration with the Province of Agusan del Norte headed by Governor Ma. Angelica Rosedell Amante-Matba and Vice Governor Ramon Bungabong.


In time with the 119th Philippine Independence Day celebration with the theme, “Kalayaan 2017: Pagbabago Sama-samang Balikatin”, the department partnered with some government agencies such as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Philippine Overseas Employers Administration (POEA) and several private sector companies in serving the various employment needs of the job-seekers.

During the opening of the fair, DTI Provincial Director Ms, Gay A. Tidalgo and DOLE Caraga Regional Director Ms. Chona M. Mantilla, CESO III together with its partner government agencies and private sectors signed the MOA for the Trabaho, Negosyo at Kabuhayan.


Adopting the concept of “Trabaho, Negosyo at Kabuhayan” (TNK), DTI established a booth in the venue which catered the needs of the jobseekers and walk-in clients who showed interest not only for wage employment but for opportunity to start a business.

DOLE Caraga continues to converge with its partners and stakeholders to open more employment, opportunities and offer various options for Caraga workers. ©kav
