Philippine state and private job sites take hands
22 Dec 2016
The Philippine government and Edukasyon.ph, a private-sector education site, teamed up to improve the chances of citizens finding jobs.
Sites in the network include, JobStreet, PhilJob.net, CatholicJob and BPOCareerhub.
On Edukasyon.ph, students search and apply for admission to schools (both local and foreign, but mostly senior high schools, colleges, universities and other training providers), as well as scholarships.
It was founded by Henry Motte-Munoz in 2014 in Manila, Philippines, when he realized most Filipino students were making educational choices based on little information and support, and so exarcebated youth unemployment in the country.
Passionate about solving this problem – of young people studying at low quality, irrelevant, or unaffordable institutions of higher education – Motte-Munoz created a one-stop site for information and advice for students on where to study.
PhilJob.net is the Philippine government’s official site for labor market information, jobs, and job-matching.
PhilJob.net and Edukasyon.ph will link to enable netizens to immediately connect to technical vocational schools, graduate schools, executive education, and other educational resources.
“The cooperation between Edukasyon and the labor department will make it easier for students, job seekers and the public to connect to colleges, and scholarships and find jobs worldwide,” said Motte-Munoz.
Edukasyon.ph will also help DOLE to promote its annual activities, such as the Labor Day Job Fair, Career Guidance Week, and National PESO Congress, on the site and by all its media channels and partners.
