Are you currently on the jobless list? Then, we have some good news for you! The Philippine government is looking for at least 74,000 people to fill in their vacancy list.
If you want to work as a teacher, health professional, engineering personnel or Army member, you should start polishing that resume and head on to your local government unit.
The Department of Education for instance, needs a total of 40,096 teachers, 18,238 of which would be teaching Grades 1 to 10, and 21, 858 would teach senior high schools nationwide.
According to Education Secretary Jesus Lorenzo Mateo, K-10 teachers need to be licensed, while senior high school educators would be given five years to pass the licensure exam for them to be regularized. In addition, teachers would have no say in where they would be deployed. They would only be assigned to locations where there is a deficit of teachers.
Meanwhile, the Department of Health also needs 20,000 people to fill in their vacancies nationwide. Although the government agency has already hired 23,000 various health professionals like doctors, nurses, midwives and dentists, they still need more.
Unlike with Deped, applicants may submit their resume and requirements to the hospital or health offices they would want to work in.
The Philippine Army is looking for almost 14,000 applicants to fill in vacancies for offices, engineering units, and new recruits. Army spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao said that an applicant who successfully joined the training would already be given Php 16,000 take home pay. Applicants may visit recruitment centers in Fort Bonifacio in Metro Manila, Camp Lapu-Lapu in Visayas and Camp Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro.
