The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is inviting young Filipino college graduates to join the Government Internship Program (GIP) which aims to help and teach them by personal experience on how work in the government.
Labor secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said that about 700 slots are available for dynamic, young and talented candidates nationwide. Successful applicants will be deployed in different government agencies and will work for 3 months.
"The government needs a new breed of young public servants and the DOLE is opening its doors to those who would like to join the department as interns under the GIP,” Baldoz said.
The DOLE-GIP is open to all fresh college graduates of S.Y. 2011-2012 who are holders of degree courses relevant to the DOLE's operations, such as economics, law, labor and industrial relations, social science, political science, public administration, and journalism/communication.
She added, "The program contributes to current recruitment efforts of the Department through the identification of interns who have potentials to be employed in any of the DOLE offices or attached agencies.”
"The three-month DOLE-GIP training goes beyond exposing and training the interns in a government office setting. It also provides them an opportunity to demonstrate their talents and skills in the field of public service. We want to attract the best and the brightest who want to pursue a career in government service, particularly in the fields and disciplines related to labor and employment," Baldoz said.
DOLE interns shall receive allowances amounting to 75 percent of the existing minimum wage applicable to their assigned DOLE agencies/offices. For this year, the DOLE has set aside P11 million for the GIP.
Interested applicants should be at least 18 to 25 years old with good communication skills and computer literacy. Applicants must have the ability to adapt in multi-disciplinary environment with ability to perform well in any given task.
The selected interns shall be trained in the DOLE’s public service functions and operations, which include program advocacy, frontline services delivery, program research and monitoring, and project evaluation and documentation.
“This internship program is a dress rehearsal on the real work of a frontline public servant and will enable them to discover what they can do to contribute to the country as part of the future workforce of the government bureaucracy,” she explained.
Requirements: GIP-DOLE Form, recent resume, copy of your transcript of records or certification of grades, diploma, certifications of trainings (if any), good moral character and birth certificate authenticated by NSO.
Applicants may send their application at Human resources Development Center 5th Floor, DOLE Building, Intramuros Manila or at DOLE regional offices nationwide.
