The Provincial Public Employment Service Office (PESO) is now preparing a series of activities to celebrate Labor Day on May 1, 2022.

As a prelude to Labor Day, the PESO teamed up with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in hosting a Virtual Employment Coaching session on April 27, 2022, to assist job seekers in making better career decisions.

Topics to be covered during the virtual event are factors to consider in choosing a career, labor market information and access, job interview preparation, basic worker rights and wage-related benefits, and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration legal modes of hiring overseas workers.

In addition, an estimated 5,000 local and international job opportunities await applicants at the "Naruay a Panggedan: Labor Day Job Fair" on May 1, 2022 at Robinsons Place Ilocos Expansion Mall. 

Simultaneously, beneficiaries of the Provincial Government's "IN na Kabuhayan Livelihood Program" will undergo a training seminar led by DOLE and the Department of Trade and Industry to prepare them for gainful employment or the start of their livelihood ventures.

To restore Ilocos Norte's high employment rate, Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc vowed that the Provincial Government will continue to invest in the preservation and creation of businesses, jobs, and livelihoods this year.
