Multinational food giant McDonald's has kicked off a mass hiring campaign, and is targeting to hire 1,000 Filipinos by the end of 2018.
According to McDonald's Philippines, this will be through the newly-launched "Go Hire Day" program, which aims to help boost local employment, and make career-building easier for Filipinos.
This is part of its commitment to its direct hiring policy for all its restaurants since the opening of the first McDonald's in the country in 1981, which McDonald's Philippines takes pride in.
The "Go Hire Day" program offers a fast-tracked application process on select days in August and September to give thousands of Filipinos the opportunity to join the multinational company as it continues to expand its footprint in the Philippine market.
