The May 3 online Negros Chronicle reported the last Wednesday Labor Day job fair at Rob. Mall wasn’t very successful. Of the 4,262 job openings, only 10 were hired on the spot from the 1,434 applicants and of them only 798 were qualified. The blame was passed to the Dept of Labor not communicating with the Dept of Education regarding what skills would be needed for future graduates. I can’t see any short term solution other than pushing Mandarin so maybe the job market will pick up (if) the Chinese take control.
