Skills registry system now ready-A A +A
Friday, March 8, 2013
THE Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) in Northern Mindanao and the local government of Cagayan de Oro signed recently a memorandum of agreement for the implementation of the Skills Registry System, the labor department’s initiative to monitor the number of skilled individuals who may want to land a job locally or abroad.
A City Hall report revealed that the agreement includes the Dole’s donation of equipment, software, manpower training, technology transfer and monetary assistance to fully establish the newest system to inventory skilled but unemployed individuals in the city.
The Dole turned over the equipment to City Hall early this week.
The system, the report added, was established to enable job seekers to find employment easily. The names, skills and other information of applicants will be encoded in a database, which will be linked to the official job portal of the Philippine government for job matching.
City Hall’s public employment service office (Peso) Manager Juvy Paza, in a report, said there are orientations scheduled in all barangays of the city on Manpower Skills Registration.
Pursuant to the MOA, barangay focal persons shall undertake purposive data gathering, encoding of manpower information and updating of the job registry system. (LSM)
