The 3rd MEI Mega Job Fair @ Starmall EDSA-Shaw last April 7 & 8 was another record breaking success for Magnus Eventus Inc. More than 3,400 jobseekers applied at the event and all the 30 exhibitors are satisfied with the turn-out of the event.
Magnus Eventus Inc. aims to put employers and would- be employees in direct contact with each other to explore mutually beneficial relationships. MEi’s goal is not just to bring in quantity but also quality applicants who will qualify with what the companies are looking for. MEi’s protocol is to provide applicants with employers who are legal companies and who will comply with the requirements of the Department of Labor and Employment.
Though Magnus Eventus Inc. do receive reports that there are employers who are victimized by people who are stealing terminal registration forms with the contact information of the jobseekers. And applicants are also being victimized by these same people by handing out flyers and inviting them to go to their office. Unfortunately, these people are not legit exhibitors/employers of Magnus Eventus Inc. and they are considered as illegal recruiters since they do not comply with the DOLE requirements.
This kind of problem are very rampant in every job fair, that is why Magnus Eventus Inc is vigilant to get rid of this type of people. During the 2 days event at Starmall EDSA-Shaw Magnus Eventus Inc caught 5 people giving out flyers to applicants, with no company names they are representing. Unluckily, they gave flyers to the Organizer and to the DOLE representative. They were brought to the mall security office for investigation and to Brgy. Wack-wack and filed blotter complaints as warning to these people. These people were released after getting the important information of the company they are representing.
Their modus operandi is to approach applicants at the job fair and entice them to join their company. One way to recognize these people is they are giving small flyers without the name of their company. They are not registered legitimate exhibitors. They will encourage them to join by shelling out money from Php 500 to Php 7,000 for membership and buy the package kit or dental cards and the only way to earn is to get more referrals that will do the same modus operandi.
Magnus Eventus Inc. has an agreement with the Department of Labor and Employment that no fees shall be collected from the applicants. Magnus Eventus Inc. believes that a Job fair is a venue to find job, where applicants get hired and earn money and not the other way around. MEi hopes that jobseekers be wise enough to choose the company that is legit and that will help them prosper.
MEi will be vigilant with their job fairs and they are warning all those company with this scam that they will stay vigilant with all their succeeding events. To know more about the latest Magnus Eventus Inc . job fairs please visit www.magnuseventus .com
