Jobseekers told to acquire required skills

by L. Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (17 October) -- The Provincial Labor and Employment Office (PLEO) told jobseekers to complete skills requirements and necessary work experience for them to fit to job vacancies offered by placement agencies coming in the province.

This was the observation made by PLEO Avelina Manganip, after seeing that many applicants in recent job fairs failed to comply with job requirements asked by employers in host countries.

Although the demand for skilled workers has gone-up, many could not land in employment abroad because of lacking requirements, Manganip said.

Manganip cited the high demand for nurses to work in the United States, United Kingdom and other western countries, but many interested applicants do not have the complete work requirements needed.

There can be more contract workers to be deployed overseas if only they are fit, Manganip said. What we see is the mismatch of skills to what is needed in other countries, she noted.

There are 110 OFWs registered with the PLEO this year, lesser than the 200 deployed, last year, records from the PLEO shows. But the figures can improve with the present skills trainings and enhanced work courses offered by government through the TESDA, she said.

Local government units have a share in the deployment of labor resource through the loan program granted to interested applicants for their needed expenses. Many have already availed of the program and started to pay back their borrowed amounts also to be lent to new borrowers. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
