by Chiselo Joiada Radaza-Bernaldez
Butuan City (June 15) -- The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Caraga Region will be at the forefront in the upcoming Jobs bridging and internship program event which will be held on June 26, 2009, in this city.
This significant activity is TESDA's response to President Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo's resiliency program to address the present global economic crisis causing many of our locally-employed and overseas Filipino workers who were displaced due to cost-cutting measures of local and foreign companies.
Accordingly, this event will provide an avenue for the displaced workers with other employment opportunities in other companies or a chance to undergo TSDA's internship program under the Pangulong Gloria Scholarship Grants.
This will also give our new graduates an avenue to find employment without going through the rigors of the application process, and going to different places just to land a job.
The event will gather an estimated 3,000 TVET graduates, students and workers all over Caraga to engage with employers from the private sector both locally and overseas manning agencies using a technology-base job-matching encounter.
A nationwide activity will be conducted and to be spearheaded by TESDA where President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Secretary Augusto Boboy Syjuco will be the guests of honor.
With this development, displaced workers, graduates from different fields and those interested to land a job are encouraged to join.
