First Mega Job Fair for 2013 was launched at the Activity Center of Trinoma Mall, North Avenue corner EDSA, Quezon City Last January 23 & 24, 2013.During this event, Mrs. Angelu De Leon-Rivera, MEi official event endorser, was there to show her support. 4,764 jobseekers and 43 employers from various industries participated the event.
The Philippine Society for Orphan Disorders (PSOD) and OI Support Philippines (Osteogenesis Imperfecta - Brittle Bone Condition) joined us and share with us the awareness about the upcoming Rare Disease Day and how we can help employ the Filipinos with disabilities. The event is not just awareness for the Rare Diseases but also to ignite and inform the employers that PWD must also be treated with the same opportunities. We are also happy to see Mr. Will Aucina, a PWD jobseeker in a wheelchair, trying his might to apply together with the able jobseekers.
