Finding Jobs in Marikina

In the last years, one of the services of this site, Marikenya.com, is to provide announcements of job fairs and job postings in Marikina City. For this, I have received numerous messages from readers of this site who wishes to find a job.

While I wanted to help everyone to get employment, please understand that I do not organize job fairs and I am not an employer nor a recruiter. What I do to help in terms of providing employment for Marikina people is to simply post any job opportunity that reach my knowledge and publish it here so more people seeking for jobs will be informed.

I am issuing this clarification because I feel sad whenever I get letters from readers pleading that I provide them jobs. Please understand that I cannot do that, I simply can’t. Maybe if I win the lotto, I can put up a lot of businesses to help people gain employment but not now, not yet.
