The Public Employment Service Office in Bacolod City will host four special recruitment activities this month for jobs abroad for its first round in 2013 employment facilitation, Moises de la Cruz, PESO manager, said yesterday.
De la Cruz said personnel from recruitment agencies like Arab Peninsula, Greenfieds, Pisces International Placement Corp., and Lead Resources Management Corp. will conduct its interviews and screening at PESO starting next week since more skilled workers are needed abroad.
Pisces International is representing 40 companies in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Dubai, and Malaysia and they need skilled workers like engineers, auto electricians, house maids, welders, drivers, architects, project managers, duct insulators, plumbers, carpenters, spray painters, and service clerks, he said.
They also need fabricators, heat exchanger technicians, riggers, silk screen printers, laser machine operators, pipe testers, cooks, cashiers, storekeepers, accountants, graphic designers, land and building surveyors, line setters, and machine operators, De la Cruz added.
Lead Resources, on the other hand, needs service crews for Kuwait. Its initial interview will be on Jan. 18 at PESO and the final and employer’s interview is on Jan. 19 at the Masskara Hall, Government Center, de la Cruz said.
Arab Peninsula and Greenfields personnel will hold their SRA on Jan. 21 until 22. Greenfields, however, will extend until Jan.23. All of their activities will be held at PESO, he also said.
De la Cruz said that so far, many recruitment agencies have already booked their job-search activities with PESO Bacolod because applicants from here have good qualifications and many of them perform well in their jobs abroad.
“It is very rewarding that these agencies trust Bacoleños and it is also a good sign that many of our jobseekers will get jobs abroad,” he also said.
De la Cruz also reminded applicants to prepare all their documents before coming to the interview. Applicants have to bring their resume, transcript of records, training and employment certificates, passport (if any), and other documents that will support their application, he said.
They are also asked to come in decent attire. Wearing of slippers and shorts is discouraged, he added. *LTG
