Of the said figure, 29 were hired for overseas work and seven for local employment.
“There a good number more that were hired as welders in Qatar and nurses for Hongkong and Malaysia but we don’t have the figures for now,” said Nanette Tindoc, focal person of the Provincial Public Employment Service Office (PESO).
Between January until March 6, this year, the provincial PESO has facilitated five special recruitment activities (SRA) for overseas work of which 403 applicants participated.
There were four recruitment agencies held in the same period for local employment with a turnout of 27 applicants.
Tindoc is requesting job applicants to submit their resume, transcript of records, and certificates of employment to PESO office for possible job matching.
The Provincial PESO is located at the lobby of Mariano Perdices Coliseum, Capitol Area, this city.
