by Chiselo Joiada Radaza - Bernaldez
Butuan City (June 29) -- The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Caraga Administrative Region conducted recently the Jobs Bridging and Internship Program held at Balanghai Hotel and Convention Center, Doongan, this city.
The 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 to be displaced due to the cost-cutting measures of local and foreign companies.
Accordingly, this event provides an avenue for our displaced workers with other employment opportunities in other companies or a chance to undergo TESDA'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, going to different places just to land a job.
The event gathered around 3,000 participants composed of TVET Graduates, students, and workers all over Caraga to engage with more than 50 employers from the private sector both locally and overseas manning agencies with more or less a thousand Job Orders available using a technology-based job-matching encounter.
Displaced Workers, graduates from different fields and those interested to land a job are encouraged to join. (TESDA-13/PIA-Caraga) [top]
