The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) opened over 6,000 jobs for Filipinos at its recently concluded job fair in Bicutan, Taguig.
A news report said TESDA information officer Nina Dodd estimated that around 70 employers, 3,000 TVET enrolees, TESDA graduates as well as job seekers flocked at the agency’s National Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Enrollment Day on February 27.
TESDA made the program available to citizens living in National Capital Region.
Following this successful activity, the agency seeks to bring this kind of job fair across the country this August.
It plans to make the TVET enrollment and the job fair accessible to many Filipinos by introducing this to provinces, districts, municipalities, malls, among others.
TESDA said it only requires enrolees to bring identification card, 1×1 ID picture, while job seekers should have their resumes and TESDA certificates.
Its director general Guiling Mamondiong stressed this move was to further familiarize Filipinos with its advocacies and programs.
The organization, he added, is focusing on Filipinos in barangays and underserved areas.
