Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III yesterday urged jobseekers to visit and browse the PhilJobNet for job opportunities and register in the system for easier job matching.
“Our local job market offers plenty of vacancies. At the PhilJobNet alone, more than 50,000 local vacancies are available for jobseekers,” Bello said.
The PhilJobNet is the government’s web-based job matching facility and labor market information portal.
In a report to Bello, Bureau of Local Employment director Dominique Tutay said the top 10 vacancies at the PhilJobNet are for the positions of call center agent with 822; staff nurse with 402; housekeeper with 198 vacancies; private tutor, 180; quality analyst with 180 vacancies; production worker, 180; cashier, 140; salesperson, 135 vacancies; drivers, 125 vacancies; and accounting officer with 100.
Tutay said jobseekers may access the Enhanced PhilJobNet System and efficiently look for the right job on a 24/7 basis, for free.
“PhilJobNet provides timely, relevant, and readily accessible information on job vacancies and job applicants at no cost to registered jobseekers and employers,” Bello said.
It features a flexible matching system which matches job applicants to a vacancy, according to general and specific requirements of employers. An interactive map is also available for applicants to 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).
PhilJobNet is the leading job search and job and skills matching portal in the Philippines since it was launched in 1998.
