BUTUAN CITY, February 28 – The nationwide launching of TESDA’s National TVET Enrollment Day and Jobs Bridging Program on Tuesday here has not only amassed a number of interested individuals enrolling various TESDA training programs and/or qualifications but also attracted a number of TVET graduates looking for a job.

Employment agencies for jobs abroad and local companies with job vacancies were invited in the Jobs Bridging Program. A total of nine employers/agencies were present on the first day of the program, two of which came all the way from Cagayan de Oro City.

Based on the data provided by DOLE-Agusan del Norte Field Office, a total of 3,000 jobs abroad (part of the 9,000+ jobs previously announced) and 125 local job vacancies/postings were available on the first day.

Employment agencies participated are as follows: Jenerick Int’l Manpower, Inc., Pisces Int’l Placement Corp., FVJ Overseas Placement and Placewell Int’l Services Corp.

Meanwhile, local companies present were the Bachelor Express, Inc., Equi-parco Construction Company, Olin Dept of Engineering and Construction, Watergate, Hi Precision, and Vross Meat Shoppe.

The two-day activity anchored on the theme “Magsanay. Magka-hanapbuhay. Magtagumpay” is a directive of TESDA’s Director General Guiling “Gene” A. Mamondiong, created to not only make various TESDA programs and services more accessible to the public but more importantly to assist TESDA/TVET graduates in searching for work and/or employment.

It is also anchored on the two-pronged strategy of the Duterte Administration in expanding access to high quality and relevant TVET opportunities, addressing the disparities and increasing active linkages and mechanization of various sectors  so that every Filipino can enjoy a better and dignified quality of life.

The jobs bridging program has been made possible through the support of LGU-Butuan, DOLE Regional Office and Agusan del Norte Field Office, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Caraga, Public Employment Service Office (PESO) and the Philippine Electronics and Communications Institute of Technology (PECIT) for the venue.

TESDA Caraga is inviting everyone to participate the National TVET Enrollment Day and Jobs Bridging Program.  The 2-day activity will commence today and to be conducted every 25th and 26th of August, in time of TESDA’s Anniversary, thereafter.  (LME, TESDA-Caraga)
