New services for jobseekers offered by PEESO Tagum

TAGUM CITY—The City Government of Tagum is stepping up its game on employment facilitation services with the launch of a one-stop work station aimed at helping the Tagumenyo workforce with no or limited access to computers and internet.

Patterned after “Japan, Hello Work!”, a program focused primarily on employment, the LGU institutionalized its own and officially launched Tagumpay Work Station as part of the Public Education and Employment Service Office (PEESO) Online Services under Mayor Allan Rellon’s EAGLE WINGS program.

The newly-opened work station offers free use of the computers for application letter and resume encoding and printing, Philjob.net registration, online passporting assignment, Philippine Talent Map Initiative (PTMI) assessment exam, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) E-registration, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) online services, research, among others.

The PEESO is a new department created by the local government as a key step in institutionalizing the LGU’s agenda on education and employment.

Meanwhile, a successful job fair was also conducted as part of the many activities during the 5-in-1 International Celebration of the city leading up to the 20th Araw ng Tagum.

The local government  partnered with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Rotary Club of Tagum North, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Overseas Workers Welfare Administration and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, and globe to open this year’s first Job Fair in Tagum City.

With the help of 46 participating companies and agencies, the city was able to solicit 4,181 job vacancies. Likewise, the locale also extended their assistance for applications for PHILHEALTH and JobStart.

This was initiated by the city government to introduce Tagumenyos to job opportunities in an effort to further improve the city’s unemployment rate.

A total of 1,158 registered applicants graced the event, with 974 applying for local jobs and 184 applying for overseas. Meanwhile, 778 applicants were interviewed with 25 people hired on the spot and 441 listed as near-hire for further interviews. Andie Braga/CIO Tagum
