PIA Press Release

DPWH 13 holds jobs fair

Butuan City (23 February) -- Following pronouncements of the forging of a memorandum of agreement between the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), National Constructors Association of the Philippines (NACAP) and the Philippine Construction Association (PCA), the Caraga Regional Office of DPWH through the efforts of Director Evelyn Barroso is set to hold a one-day jobs fair on Monday (February 23) 8:00 am at the DPWH Regional Office 13.

The jobs fair is part of President Arroyo's job generation program. This is a nationwide simultaneous activity of DPWH timed with the signing of the MOA that is expected to provide 500,000 jobs, the agency's biggest job generation undertaking so far.

In 2007, some 300,00 were hired, while in 2008, less than 500,000 people were employed by the agency.

"The jobs fair aims to provide gainful employment to workers displaced or affected by the current global recession. The jobs fair is also expected to provide fiscal stimulus to spur economic growth in the locality as employment increases spending power and probable opportunity to save," Director Barroso explains.

The department will be hiring civil engineers, foremen, laboratory technicians, steelmen, heavy equipment operator, masons, tinsmiths, laborers and other positions. Applicants must be 18 to 50 years old, physically and mentally fit.

According to Barroso, this is so far the agency's biggest job generation undertaking. "In 2007, some 300,00 were hired, while in 2008, less than 500,000 people were employed by the agency," said Director Barroso. (PIA-13) [top]
