Around 1000 workers in Region 3 receive paid internship from DOLE
More than a thousand workers from Central Luzon finished their paid government internship program from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
DOLE regional director Atty. Ana Dione said that the beneficiaries of DOLE’s Government Internship Program (DOLE-GIP) for 2017 experienced training from various government agencies within the region.
“Our young interns were given opportunity to demonstrate their talents and skills in the field of public service while the DOLE’s part was to identify the best and the brightest among them who want to further pursue a career in government service, particularly in the field and discipline of labor and employment,” Dione said in a news statement.
The labor department’s regional office allocated P30,084,803.29 for the salaries of intern-beneficiaries. Each beneficiary was given 75 percent of the region’s prevailing minimum daily wage.
Under a memorandum of understanding between the DOLE and its partner agencies, the intern-beneficiaries must be 18-30 years old, high school or technical-vocational graduates, and must have zero work experience.
Partner agencies include the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, Department of Science and Technology, Department of Agriculture, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Education, Land Bank of the Philippines, Philippine Statistics Authority, Bureau of Fire Protection, local government units and state colleges/ universities in the region.
“The DOLE-GIP is a good stepping stone for our intern-beneficiaries to learn and experience the real world of government work with the fulfillment of serving our fellow Filipinos with our various basic government services,” Dione said.
