In preparation of the upcoming opening of the new SM Laoag City, the said job fair offered over 600 employment opportunities. It served as a platform for the participants to engage with industry professionals, and to explore a wide range of positions, from entry-level roles to professional careers, offering options for those looking to enter or re-enter the workforce.

Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc led the ribbon cutting at the event, emphasizing the importance of maximizing the benefits of this new partnership,

“We have to make sure na ma-maximize po natin ang mga benefits sa ating kakailian. We should think of our people first, secondly, our environment, and thirdly, ang ating economy.

Let us recognize all those things and count SM to be a good and responsible partner, and we look forward to this new era sa ating commercial sector of Ilocos Norte.”

During the event, 364 job seekers had the opportunity to engage with hiring managers from the 22 affiliates and participate in on-the-spot interviews, thus expediting the recruitment process which resulted to partner companies hiring 61 applicants on-the-spot. (Allyssa Charisse Magno)
