A pre-labor day program was recently held by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) where they offered job-skills matching and career assessment services to over 300 technical-vocation (tech-voc) graduates.
The event also covered a pre-registration activity for the upcoming Labor Day 2013 Grand Jobs Fair.
Tyron Somera, Human Resource Recruitment Manager of BPO company SITEL and Judith Adina of the University of Cordilleras were some of the speakers. Somera discussed application and recruitment tips while Adina tackled 21st century skills that are crucial for potential employers. On the other hand, George Lubin, DOLE Baguio/Benguet Focal Officer, talked about employment opportunities locally and abroad.
Meanwhile, Henry John Jalbuena, Regional Director of DOLE-Cordillera, cited the ruling of Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz that the DOLE group is working hard to provide tech-voc graduates with the necessary information to land the right job. They will also assist the applicants in matching their skills to the right job position.
Jalbuena added that on the Labor Day event, applicants will already know which institutions are looking for the actual skills that they have. About 45 employers will take part in the event, which will mean over 6,000 job openings.
