PIA Press Release

Career guide made available online

Iloilo City (9 November) -- Are you an incoming college freshman having a hard time in determining what course to take after graduation? Or, are you a worker planning to shift to another career?

Why don't you check the Career Guide Section found on the website of the Bureau of Local Employment, a bureau of the Department of Labor and Employment? It might help you in choosing the right career path.

The DOLE has been encouraging especially young Filipinos to visit BLE's website for its career guide section containing a series of occupational "briefs" which aims to provide information on hard-to-fill and highly?in-demand occupations identified during the 2006 National Manpower Summit and the 2007 National Human Resource Conference.

The Career Guide also has information on the nature of the job, its education and competency requirements, employment, and job outlook.

DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz said in a DOLE online report that "today's world of work needs knowledge workers; workers who have HOT, or "higher order thinking" skills; workers who are multi-skilled, confident, adaptable, flexible, learnable, and trainable."

She further added that "more than this, today's workers should know and be familiar with the occupations that interest them and require their abilities and capabilities. Young Filipinos, particularly students, who after graduation from college will join the labor force, should visit this website to find out more about their career prospects."

Baldoz said the section even offers information about the physical attributes of prospective applicants.

DOLE reported that as of November 5, the Career Guide section has 79 career occupations with summary information. (PIA) [top]
