WITH the active support of the Department of Labor and Employment (Dole)-Central Luzon and the participation and coordination of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), the Handog ng MCG last February 19, 2018 was a resounding success.
With over 3,000 job openings up for grabs that day, applicants had all the reasons to be glad as they went through the interview process at Jade Hall, Xevera.
The big jobs fair was spearheaded by the Public Employment Service office (Peso), ably managed by Bernard B. delos Reyes and the event was beamed nationwide courtesy of ABS-CBN. Some 130 applicants were hired on the spot, or HOTS, pleasing the officials of Dole Region 3 and, of course, the Peso staff who were in full force.
Peso Mabalacat City, meanwhile, continues to conduct jobs fairs in different venues of the city and strives to give employment opportunities to the residents of the city. It also has schedules for trainings and livelihood programs in the very near future.
One of its training providers is Global Experts School of Science and Technology, an accredited Tesda training school. It handles Slaughtering, Contact Center training, food processing and food and beverage. It has also deployed several graduates of the Slaughtering course.
MCA Kin Builders and International Technopreneur Development Institute are also two training provides for Peso. For lack of documentary requirements by the City Government's Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), the vouchers of the two training providers have languished at the Accounting Department and follow ups have proved futile.
The Clark Development Corporation, a state-owned firm reaches out to communities adjacent to it, one of which is Mabalacat City, with which it shares parallel development.
In observance of its corporate social responsibility, it has entered into a memorandum of agreement between its President & CEO Noel F. Manankil and Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo C. Garbo for the construction of a P3.4 million multi-purpose gymnasium of the Mabalacat City College, headed by my sister, Dr. Carmelita Pangan Sotto, the college president, CDC will allot some P1.5 million for the construction of the gym.
On March 9, 2018, there would be a meeting of alumni of the St. Anthony Jr. College to discuss the details of the launching of the school's Diamond Jubilee. This will happen at 6 pm at the school's gymnasium.
The alumni are encouraged to attend the meeting as well as the jubilee's celebrations. The coordinator of these events is Ms. Glo Gomez.
