Hire typhoon displaced workers

The Department of Labor and Employment 6 (DOLE 6) has appealed to employers to hire workers displaced by super typhoon Yolanda to enable them to earn income to support the immediate needs of their families.
“We are asking our employers, as much as possible, to provide emergency employment  even just for a short period of time, like a bridging employment, for those who lost their livelihood, for them to earn money to sustain their daily needs,” said Ligutom in a press conference held at the DOLE 6 Office, December 5.
Ligutom said a resolution was made by the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board in the region to ask DTI and DOLE through its intermediaries such as the Tripartite Industrial Peace Council to  request employers to invoke their sense of social corporate responsibility to help workers affected by the super typhoon.
The appeal was also directed by Ligutom to employers who will be participating in the job fairs that it will conduct tomorrow,December 6, here in Iloilo City as part of its 80th Founding anniversary celebration. The job fairs will be held at Marymart Mall at Valeria St. and at the 3rd Level of Robinson’s Place-Iloilo.
As of 10 AM, December 5, some 50 local companies and overseas recruitment agencies with close to 10,000 vacancies have already signified to join the fairs and more are expected to sign up during the day of the activity.
Some of the available jobs for local employment are customer service associate, marketing representative, accounting personnel, driver, marketing professional, engineer, merchandiser, welder, service crew, and technician.
For overseas employment these include welders, carpenters, housekeepers, caretakers, steelman, mason, cleaner, technicians, engineers and pipefitter.

Ligutom encouraged applicants to bring all the necessary documents when they join the job fairs to hasten their chances of getting hired.
These documents include detailed resume, diploma, transcript of record, 2X2 pictures, certificates of employment, Professional Regulation Commission license and certificates of competencies, if any.
Aside from the said documents, overseas employment applicants are advised to bring their passports.
According to Ligutom job fair is one of the best offers that they could give today for those who lost not only their houses but their means of livelihood to typhoon aside from the emergency employment that it has already started last week using the Cash for Work scheme. (Lilibeth French/PIA)
