DOLE: Job Assistance for Filipino Jobseekers

Date Posted: Sep 30, 2009

The Department of Local Employment (DOLE) is very pursuant in providing decent jobs for Filipinos and has been creating programs that could help jobseekers find careers.


However, due to other circumstances such as global financial meltdown and some false agencies not all jobseekers get able to have jobs.


To help out unemployed Filipinos, the DOLE advised all jobseekers to follow their instructions to assist them in getting decent careers:


  1. Go to Public Employment Service Office (PESO) located in your respective regions or cities. PESO is responsible in giving assistance for local employment.
  2. Bring with you your school diploma/transcript of records, comprehensive resume, certificate of employment (if there’s any) and ID picture. Prepare other necessary credentials if possible.
  3. Present your personal documents and register at PESO. Fill out the registry form where important questions are listed.
  4. An employment officer will assist you for initial interview and assistance. The officer will give you job referrals where you can apply to.
  5. Before you go to the company listed on your referral slip, make sure that you call the company first to verify if the job is still vacant.
  6. (In case verified) Go to the company dressed in a formal attire and present the referral slip that PESO officer gave you and your personal credentials as well.
  7. Follow up your application. Make sure that you arrive on the schedule that the company give you.
  8. In case rejected or still looking for a job, just visit PESO office regularly for more job assistance.


Important advisory for DOLE:

  1. Do not believe on flyers, posters, leaflets that offer job vacancies that are being distributed on streets or posted on public walls and posts.
  2. Never give your trust easily to those employers/companies that promise jobs after you’ve been asked to sell credit cards, water purifiers, insurance plan, and any other products.
  3. Never pay registration fees, application fees or any fee that the agency/company asked you. A minimum placement fee not more than 20% of your salary can only be paid to DOLE licensed recruitment agencies only.
  4. Make sure that the recruitment agency that you are into is licensed and authenticated by DOLE.
