DOLE: 8,000 Jobs Benefited Bicolanos

Date Posted: Sep 19, 2010

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) gladly announced that they were able to give more than 8,000 jobs to some qualified jobseekers in the Bicol Region.


“We are positive that this number will increase in the second semester. We will venture into more job generating strategies in pursuit of the marching orders of President Benigno S. Aquino III and Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda D. Baldoz,” said DOLE Bicol Regional Director Alvin H. Villamor in a press release reporting the employment data.


Based on DOLE”s data: 499 workers were hired in Albay, 522 in Camarines Norte, 2,289 in Camarines Sur, 4,006 in Catanduanes, 777 in Sorsogon and 4 in Masbate.


The new employment numbers resulted from the regional office soliciting 16,717 vacancies during the first semester vis-a-vis the number of applicants which reached 15,466.


“The number of vacancies we solicited was higher than the number of applicants because of two main factors. These are the skills-jobs mismatch and the cultural attributes of Bicolano workers, who tend to stay in the country because of their closeness to their families.


Because of this, Villamor said the regional office plans to invite local companies based in Laguna, Metro Cebu, and Metro Manila to conduct specialized recruitment in the region in the second half of the year.


“The idea is to offer Bicolanos jobs that still entail leaving home but to places still much closer to their families,” he said.


For the second semester, Villamor said the regional office targets 10,940 workers placed in the region.
