Jobs Hiring Work in Pampanga, Philippines

The Public Employment and Services Office (PESO) in Pampanga has embarked on a diversified approach to generate and facilitate employment and livelihood opportunities for its target beneficiaries throughout the province.

PESO head Luningning Vergara said the office has strengthened the provision and facilitation of livelihood and employment opportunities to ensure a more productive and empowered citizenry in the province.

Guided by Governor Lilia G. Pineda’s administration’s thrust of empowering the Kapampangans, Vergara said the PESO implemented various plans, programs and activities designed to promote a productive community centered on investment, employment and social protection.

“We are not only promoting jobs, but we are also after the protection of the job seekers themselves,” she said.

For the past 11 months, she said the PESO has provided job search assistance services through job referrals to a total of 4,856 local and 3,191 overseas job seekers with 3,941 and 1,167 placements reported.

In addition, the PESO also conducted skills enhancement trainings for 2,315 job seekers during the said period.

Eleven job fairs were also held from July 2010 to May 2011 with 9,477 applicants from the various municipalities of the province assisted while 61 local and provincial recruitment activities were held with 3,208 applicants served.

“We also conducted career coaching among 5,297 students from 24 schools, labor education to 497 graduating students and pre-employment orientation to 8577 beneficiaries to address skills and jobs mismatch and to further educate the job seekers on matters pertaining to the real world of work,” Vergara said.

The provincial government also recently established seven school-based PESO in the University of the Assumption (UA), Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University (DHVTSU), Guagua National College (GNC), Pampanga Agricultural College (PAC), Holy Angel University (HAU), St. Nicolas College and ACLC-Apalit.
