With around 12,000 jobs offered by local and foreign companies, the jobs fair organized by Cebu City Hall attracted thousands of jobseekers. (SunStar Photo/Amper Campaña) DIEMPON Hazel Mandabon, 20, was eager to find a job after graduating from college last March. In her best outfit and carrying brown envelope containing her resume and application letter, Mandabon, a communications graduate of the University of San Jose-Recoletos, rn teaching positions tried her luck at the local and overseas jobs fair organized by the Cebu City Government at the Cebu City Sports Center yesterday. She was one of 1,368 jobseekers looking for employment at the jobs fair. Mandabon said she plans to apply as a customer service representative for a local mall chain in Cebu. But she also has other options should she get unlucky. “Nangaplay ko og at least lima ka companies ron kon dili gyod maswertehan (I sent applications to five companies just to be sure),” Mandabon said. Miriam Lamosa, 33, also attended the job fair. But unlike Mandabon, her target is a job abroad. A registered nurse, Lamosa told SunStar Cebu that she went to the job fair after learning there are offers for nursing jobs outside the country.
