Thousands join TESDA's Jobs Bridging and Internship Fair

by Lovely Laudette D. Gamba

Butuan City (29 June) -- Despite the scorching heat of the sun and the long queue, thousands flocked to the one-day Jobs Bridging and Internship Fair of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) here, this city recently.

On that day 3,243 clients were served and given gold cards. Out of this, 353 job applicants were hired on the spot, 491 was near hired, 311 provided with internship jobs and 259 were provided with scholarships.

The number of clients served and provided with the gold card is 8.1 percent higher than the agency's target of 3,000 clients. It was also considered one of the most successful job fairs in the region, given the number of hired on the spot and near hired as well as the number of those given assistance.

"Walang uuwing luhaan sa job fair na ito. (No one will be disappointed in today's job fair) We do not only provide jobs here, but we also provide internship and scholarship programs. If the participant applies and he or she is not hired, then our personnel we'll assess if he needs further training or internship. If he or she needs training, then we will give him or her scholarship or training coupon. If he or she needs internship, then we will match his or her skills with the companies who might need his or her skills," says Rogelio Peyuan, TESDA Deputy Director General for Field Operations during a brief press conference.

"Wala talagang talo, because some of our participants were provided with transportation, hinakot pa naming sila sa probinsya. They are provided with T-shirts and meals. Not to mention the gold card, which will be their passport to world wide employment," added Peyuan.

All participants to the job fair came out with a gold card. The applicant's data was stored in the gold card enabling the job seeker to have a paperless application. Through the gold card, the applicant's profile will be available to the employers all over the world.

It has been a successful event, participated by displaced workers, technical-vocational education and training (TVET) graduates of TESDA and job seekers all over Caraga. 8 national government agencies (NGAs) and 44 private companies participated in the fair. (PIA-Caraga) [top]
