Docomo Pacific hosted a job fair yesterday at the Fiesta Resort & Spa to fill up 20 job openings.
Saipan’s second undersea fiber optic cable, Atisa, is expected to result in high speed Internet and an abundance of jobs to support the services.
“Atisa is going to open doors for services and products that haven’t been available before in the Northern Mariana Islands. We want to match this anticipation with the right people—people who are as passionate as we are to take this project to the next level,” said Docomo Pacific public relations coordinator Tatiana Perez.
Earllon Granada, 26, applied for a retail customer service representative lead position and call center lead. Granada thinks the process went well, despite the wait.
“[The job fair was] good. It was just the waiting that was really challenging, but so far so good,” he said.
Granada likes to think positive whenever going through job interviews such as these. “I like to think I do. I don’t want to assume that I don’t. I have this mindset where I think, when I walk in there, I will get hired.”
Jang Gun Korean Restaurant server Marissa Songco, 36, was testing the waters for a possible job at Docomo Pacific.
“I am trying my luck. I think I have a good shot because I worked well for other companies and my skills could contribute greatly to the company,” she said.
Mark Diestro, 27, who applied for a customer service representative position, thinks that his interview went smoothly and hopes to go through the initial screening.
“There are a lot of more experienced applicants, but I do have experience under my belt too. I like to try to keep my confidence up,” he said.
Docomo Pacific brand manager Danny Daniel was pleased with the outcome.
“We’re super-excited that there was such a good turnout. It shows that there are huge opportunities in Docomo Pacific, and we are happy to see that people are excited to join the family,” said Daniel.
The positions available were retail customer service representative lead, tech zone, direct sales representative, call center CSR lead, account executive, sales manager, sales engineer, sales support, and field technician.
