Over 200,000 job seekers in Central Luzon hired – DOLE
Public Employment Service Office (PESO) has assisted 224,382 job seekers in Central Luzon to get local and overseas work in 2017, according to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
DOLE Region 3 Technical Support and Services Division for Employment and Welfare head Alejandro Inza Cruz and Labor Statistician Andre Josef Bustos said PESO’s employment facilitation assistance recorded placement rate of 88 percent over 254,460 referred applicants.
“Thanks to our continued partnership with the PESOs, we’ve set another milestone in providing for more employment opportunities in ensuring that our job seekers land jobs through our help. With our latest scorecard, we have surpassed the Bureau of Local Employment’s (BLEs) 80 percent placement rate target,” Cruz said.
DOLE and PESOs also initiated the conduct of 10 region-wide job fairs during the Labor Day and Independence Day festivities, he said.
Aside from this, Cruz said the DOLE and PESOs also teamed up in holding various local job fairs within provinces, cities, and municipalities all over the region.
All national and local job fairs have adopted the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) Concept forged between the DOLE and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), he added. #
