NOVELETA, Cavite. - The local government has facilitated the employment of at least 617 workers in call centers, factories, and malls in nearby towns and cities under its monthly job fair program.

The workers underwent a 7-day training before they were hired, according to PESO

Thanks to Mayor Dino Reyes-Chua for this life changing opportunity.” said Emmanuel Martinez, resident of Barangay San Juan 2 Noveleta.
