13 September 2020 - The Civil Service Commission (CSC) will hold the Government Online Career Fair (GOCF) on 14-18 September 2020. This event is held in partnership with JobStreet.com and as part of the 120th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary.

Once registered, applicants will be able to view the job postings starting 14 September.
Applicants will be assessed based on their education, experience, training, and eligibility according to the requirements of the position being applied to.
A detailed registration procedure for job seekers is also available at the CSC website, www.csc.gov.ph.
As of this writing, the CSC and JobStreet.com have gathered 2,452 vacancies from 249 national government agencies (including central and regional offices), local government units, government-owned and controlled corporations, and state universities and colleges.
Job seekers may also browse CSC's website, www.csc.gov.ph/career, for vacancies. This is a repository of vacancies submitted by government agencies, with details such as requirements, qualifications, and deadline for submitting applications. To date, there are 7,555 positions posted in the CSC website that are still open for applications.
Inclusivity and Diversity
The CSC highly encourages application from qualified interested persons, including persons with disabilities (PWD), members of indigenous communities, and those from any sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression (SOGIE).
All applicants who are considered first time jobseekers as defined under CSC Resolution No. 2000363 dated 21 February 2020 will be entitled to a waiver of fees and charges in the issuance or authentication of a copy of Certificate of Eligibility (COE). Should the record of the Commission show that the person has previously requested a COE but has not been employed yet and still qualifies for the benefits provided by the First Time Job Seekers Act, they can still be given the requested certificate for free, provided, they complied with the following requirements:
- Any applicant claiming to be a first time jobseeker as contemplated in the First Time Jobseekers Act must secure and present barangay certification stating that he/she is a first time jobseeker;
- The applicant must be a Filipino citizen, actively looking for employment, and a resident of the barangay issuing the barangay certification for at least six (6) months; and
- The validity of the barangay certificate shall be one (1) year from the issuance.
Public Sector in the Age of Digital Transformation
Jointly organized by the CSC and JobStreet.com, the GOCF seeks to promote easy access to employment opportunities in the public sector by bringing jobseekers and hiring government agencies together in a virtual job fair. This is also held to help Filipinos rendered jobless by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is one of the ways government explores technology to make processes easier. In line with the anniversary theme, Philippine Civil Service @120: Public Sector in the Age of Digital Transformation, this public-private collaboration offers the public news ways to transact with public sector HR managers looking to hire candidates for government service.
The 2020 GOCF is also scheduled on Week 3 of the anniversary month, or the Linggo ng Malasakit.
