70,000 jobs available online

THE Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) announced the availability of almost 70,000 jobs at the government's Phil-JobNet (PJN) website.

In a statement, Dole Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz encouraged jobseekers to take advantage of the available online job sites for Filipinos at no cost.

“This news is very timely especially for parents, who are sending their children to school and are looking for jobs to support their education,” said Baldoz.

Available at the PJN website are 10,010 vacancies for call center agent, followed by dealers with 5,500 vacancies; production/factory workers, 2,577; domestic helpers, 1,487; agents, 1,437; production machine operators,1,432; cashiers, 1,192; customer service assistants, 1,168; and merchandisers, 1,026.

To note, PJN is an online job board where jobseekers are matched with the current available vacancies in the labor market.

During matching, the employer can view the profile of the applicants who matched the requirements of the vacancy, while the applicant will receive a notification via electronic mail of SMS.

The labor chief also noted that they are continuously enhancing the PJN system in order to make it a virtual one-stop shop for jobseekers.

She said among the future addition to the PJN is the integration of the skills registry system (SRS), whose development is ongoing, as well as the Dole Data Warehouse subsystem, which will integrate Tesda, PRC, POEA, and Owwa databases and allow verification of skills/professional certification and/or licenses.

It will also enable soon employers to join job fairs through advanced online registration, invite applicants for interview, and at the same time, allow applicants to respond or to request to reset interview schedules.

Baldoz said there will also be an interactive map, where applicants can view available jobs, livelihood projects implemented, or training programs being conducted at the regional and provincial levels, including available overseas jobs; list of top hiring companies; and a PESO Performance Monitoring System (PPMS).

“These new features and enhancements of the Phil-Jobnet will further result to better delivery of our employment facilitation services,” said Baldoz. (HDT/Sunnex)
