Employment Kiosk now in Davao Norte
By Mai Gevera
Davao City (1 November) -- Davao del Norte Province now has a Greater Modular Access Jobs Center or the employment kiosk to accommodate jobseekers in the province.
During the Kapihan sa Kapitolyo held at the DDN Media Center, Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario expressed gratitude for receiving an employment kiosk now set up in the Provincial Capitol so he could immediately answer job problems of his people.
"Before, they directly ask jobs from me. But the provincial government can only accommodate few positions. So I really find this employment kiosk a big help. Now, I simply tell them to go to the kiosk and click their desired job," he said.
President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo launched last April the GMA Jobs as the first information machine in the country.
One can find hot or in-demand jobs and other relevant information and services for jobseekers wanting to land a job in the country or overseas.
This time, jobseekers will only have to go to the touch screen web-enabled machine. It automatically displays information on employment opportunities for both local and overseas Filipino workers. In one click, all the desired information will then appear on screen.
Del Rosario also said that this project is also one good mechanism initiated by the administration to prepare for the negative effects that the global credit crisis might be causing the Filipinos.
"We are expecting that many of our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) will be laid off from their jobs in the foreign countries and they will be coming back. We will then make sure that we have available local jobs for them," he said. (PIA) [top]
