Boholanos especially those seeking employment and renewing their respective licenses and needing important certificates have expressed great appreciation for all the efforts being done by the Provincial Government through its Bohol Employment and Placement Office (BEPO).Â
Gov. Edgar M. Chatto got wind of reports that more requests are coming in for the holding of job fairs in the province and the conduct of mobile services â€œfor these are of great help for those who lack the means to go to other provinces and national offices just to get hired or have their licenses renewed and important certificates released.â€
The recently concluded job fairs in Talibon and in the City of Tagbilaran got very positive results wherein 53 local and overseas recruitment agencies participated in the activities.
For the 26,510 vacancies, 2053 applicants were interviewed and 283 were hired on the spot (HOTS), a requirement fully implemented by both the Provincial Government and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
Vilma Yorong, Provincial PESO Manager and BEPO OIC, provided Gov. Chatto with all the data and reported very positive feedbacks from participating Boholanos.
