We need to address job mismatch, says Negros Oriental solon

By Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (29 October) -- First District Representative Jocelyn Limkaichong has stressed the need to address the job mismatch that currently plagues the labor industry in the country.

Limkaichong, in an interview, said that the belief that there are no jobs in the country is a misnomer. "There is a mismatch in jobs. Like there are probably too many nursing aides now but the demand for it is dwindling," she said.

The congresswoman together with the La Libertad municipal government and national line government agencies recently spearheaded a job fair in La Libertad, during which Limkaichong found out that there are many job vacancies. "Surprisingly, daghan gyud kaayo ug bakanteng trabaho. Ang problema lang ang qualification [of job seekers]," she said.

Through job fairs, Limkaichong explained that labor needs will be identified. "We can determine and assess which jobs are in need of workers," she stressed, adding that this will also guide incoming college students on which courses to take that will assure their employment after graduation.

During the job fair, which was also done simultaneous with a Halad sa Katawhan activity, staff from the Department of Labor and Employment and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration were on hand to screen job applicants and introduce them to accredited recruitment agencies for local and overseas work.

Meanwhile, DOLE will also conduct a job fair in Bayawan City on December 3. (PIA/rmn) [top]
