Araw ng Laguindingan draws 77 jobseekers

 

LAGUINDINGAN, Misamis Oriental, 19 July --- The Laguindingan Local Government, through its Public Employment Service Office  (PESO), coordinated with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-X) - Misamis Oriental Provincial Field Office (Mis. Or. PFO), in commemorating the 56th Charter or Araw ng Laguindingan through a Job Fair on 11 July 2019 at the Municipal Gymnasium, here, registering 77 job seekers for employment placement.

 

Municipal Mayor Diosdado T. Obsioma thanked the PESO, employers and the DOLE for the opportunity given to his constituents  looking for job, seeking livelihood assistance and training opportunities in coordination with government and private sector partners. He was pleased of the 4 Hired-On-The-Spot (HOTS) and 26 near- hired applicants.

 

25 year-old jobseeker Jonathan Neri of Barangay Sinay was HOTS. As a high school graduate, he found it challenging to land a job, feeling the intense competition in the labor market. His work experiences include palletizer and flavor mixer in nearby food industries. After his contract concluded, he was not able to find a job for two years. “Abi gyud nako ug dili pa gihapon ko maka-trabaho kay gusto man gud ko ug trabaho nga dili mubo ang kontrata o dili contractual, pero dako jud akong pasalamat ani nga Job Fair kay naka trabaho ra gyud ko kay tungod ani nga programa ang trabaho mas ni-paduol kanako (I really thought that I will still be unemployed since I am looking for long term employment. I am very grateful for Job Fair, which brought job vacancies closer to me giving me a job),” were Neri’s words after he was hired as a bus conductor in Rural Transit Mindanao, Inc. (RTMI) Company. Though still single, he is happy of his financial independence that allow him save for his future. Aside from having a positive outlook and attitude in life, Neri emphasized that he will stay determined to improve his skills and competencies in order to improve his career.

 

DOLE-X Misamis Oriental PFO OIC Alice Tinhay said the 56th Charter Day Job Fair is a convergence of 14 employers both from private and government sectors with more than 300 job vacancies and the applicants of the municipality and its nearby areas, making it advantageous in addressing underemployment and unemployment in the region. He said top vacancies mostly from overseas posts were skilled and professional workers (150), security guards (100), and tour attendants (40).

 

Mayor Obsioma thanked DOLE, its attached agencies – Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board and the National Reintegration Center for OFWs, for bringing their services down to the grassroots level of the community through the Legal Clinic.
