The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and Edukasyon.ph yesterday joined hands for the installation of a free web based job portal system to provide jobseekers opportunities to find their preferred jobs and connect with employers.
“We have always been keen on finding ways to provide more job opportunities for the Filipino and we believe that one way of making this possible is by means of the internet and social media,” said Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III following the signing of a memorandum of agreement between DOLE and Edukasyon.ph.
Edukasyon.ph (www.edukasyon.ph), owned by Engadin Corporation is an online education site in the Philippines which bridges information asymmetry gap between scholarship providers, higher education opportunities and other industries that needs an online one-stop-shop for all courses, scholarships, and other educational opportunities available for Filipinos.
“Edukasyon.ph has a vision that every student deserves a relevant and quality education that leads to employment. With this agreement with the labor department, students, jobseekers and the public are now easily connected to colleges, scholarships and on various employment opportunities worldwide,” said Henry Motte-Munoz, founder of Edukasyon.ph.
Bello said that through the MOA, PhilJobNet will have a cross-link of Edukasyon.ph in its website that will enable netizens to immediately connect to relevant technical vocational schools, graduate schools, executive education and other educational resources at its “Search Jobs Page.”
PhilJob.Net is the Philippine government’s official web-based labor market information, job search, and job matching portal.
According to the MOA, Edukasyon.ph will provide a cross linking facility for the PhiljobNet registered users within its own website to view details of job vacancies posted by the employers and other career resources at the “Career Conversation Page” and at “Employment Partners” section without any cost on the part of the jobseekers.
PhilJobNet website by DOLE will also have a hyperlink page transfer at the partners section of the said education website.
Edukasyon.ph will also help DOLE in promoting its annual activities in the website such as Labor Day Job Fair, Career Guidance Week, National PESO Congress and others as well as in all of its media channels and partners.
