PESO Managers and CTEC pledged to strengthen job employment opportunities and provide assistance for jobseekers.

DOLE Assistant Regional Director Ofel Domingo said the MOA also spells out the respective functions, responsibilities and roles of PESOs and CTECs in specific areas of training, employment, counseling and skills mapping.
The MOA also aims to link-up various local and institutional institutions who could actively participate in the job-generation of the Administration as envisioned by the President.
One parameter of the success of the President's Job Generation program is the degree of direct correlation between government and private entities specifically in addressing the unemployment problem by conducting regular Jobs Fair which enables jobseekers find appropriate work, both locally and abroad.
