TESDA offers access for job opportunities to all Tek-Bok graduates

by Marigold "Gigi" Ramos-Garrido

Cagayan de Oro City (15 October) -- The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), in collaboration with SM, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), Tek-Bok Providers, Community Training Employment Coordinators (CTECs) / Public Employment Service Office (PESOs), once again hold a "Jobs Bridging and Internship" program for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) scholar-graduates and students or trainees on October 16, at SM Carpark, this City.

Regional Director Edwin C. Gatinao, of TESDA in region 10, disclosed that in a Central Office memorandum issued by Secretary Augusto ‘Boboy' Syjuco, the affair is TESDA's nationwide commemorative activity for the National Week for Overcoming Extreme Poverty (NWOEP) and support to the Stand Up, Fight Poverty (SUFP) Campaign. This will be a simultaneous event all over the country on October 16.

"Around eleven (11) overseas agencies and 10 local companies are set to participate in the event. An estimated 3,000 TVET graduates regionwide are expected to enlist in the jobs matching program," Dir. Gatinao added.

Aside from the face-to-face job application scheme, the Jobs Bridging program will use an online job referral system called the Blue-Desk which is accessible through the e-TESDA portal.

The system provides the job-ready Tek-Bok graduates a wider reach on employment prospects to both local and overseas market.

The Blue-Desk allows applicants to post their resumes using the barcoded TESDA Gold Cards. With this card, the applicants can access their resumes and update them anytime and in any location with internet access.

Aside from the jobs matching process, the event will showcase the career profiling system for those who wish to determine their career inclinations for job fit.

A skills demonstration for livelihood skills such as food processing, manicure and cellphone repair will be exhibited to capture the interests of the spectators and jobseekers.

As part of TVET sector's observance to the NWOEP celebration, some Tek-Bok providers offer its free services for haircut, pedicure / manicure and massage therapy.

The event will spawn greater chances for TVET scholar-graduates to be hired either on-the spot or via online. (TESDA-X) [top]
