Jobs Fair is an employment facilitation strategy aimed to fast-track the meeting of job seekers and employers/overseas recruitment agencies in one venue at a specific date to reduce cost, time, and effort particularly on the part of the applicants.



 Aside from wage employment, one can still earn a living by putting up a business. Starting a business has become a practical option not just after retirement but as a steady source of income for the younger generations. 




Kabuhayan Program is the DOLE’s contribution to the governments’ agenda of inclusive growth through massive job generation and substantial poverty reduction. It seeks to reduce the vulnerability to risks of the poor, vulnerable and marginalized workers by providing them access to a grant assistance for capacity-building on livelihood ventures either for individual or group undertakings.
