JobStart PHL In San Fernando Starts July 8 [ Friday, 4th of July 2014 | 3 years ago ]
JobStart, funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Government of Canada, is a program aimed to assist unemployed youth in looking for decent jobs through lectures on career decisions, technical and life skills, among others.
"This supports the priority agenda of the city government which is employment generation. We feel very lucky that the City of San Fernando has been chosen as one of the pilot LGUs for JobStart," said San Fernando Mayor Edwin Santiago.
The mayor said it complements the initiative of the City Government for attracting investments as it prepares "inexperienced young Fernandinos" become job-ready.
This will open 360 positions for Fernandino youth as they receive seminars on enhanced career guidance, knowledge on labor market information, as well as life skills training. Afterwards, they will be referred to potential employers for technical training and internships.
The success of the pilot strategies could translate to JobStart services for all San Fernando constituents in the future.
"This project enables the Dole to partner with employers through a training internship of up to six months. Employers who participate in the program will receive funding support, in return for taking on high school or college graduates as interns for up to six months," said Dominique R. Tutay, Director of the DOLE-Bureau of Local Employment. “They will devise, implement, and monitor implementation of their training plans for the youth as part of the partnership.”
Under the program, the youth beneficiaries will receive stipends during training and at least 75 percent of the minimum wage from the employers during internship.
To qualify, applicants need to be between 18-24 years old, at least a high school graduate (and may include college graduates and undergrads); have no job experience or have not more than one year of experience; currently not in employment, nor enrolled in school or in any training, and actively seeking employment.
Applicants are also encouraged to bring their valid IDs and copies of their latest school transcripts or training certificates and register at Waltermart Mall.
Queries on the JobStart registration can be addressed by calling the San Fernando Public Employment Service Office (Peso) through its manager, Donny M. Sayre at (045) 961 6601 or via email email@example.com.
