CSC urges gov’t offices, job seekers to participate in the online career fair in September
PASIG CITY, July 11 (PIA) – The Philippine Civil Service Commission (CSC) enjoins government offices and job seekers to participate in the online career fair in September.
CSC Commissioner Atty. Aileen Lizada, during the Laging Handa Public Briefing on Friday, discussed the upcoming Government Online Career Fair (GOCF) that will be conducted as part of the 120th year anniversary of the Philippine Civil Service.
“Every September, we celebrate the Philippine Civil Service Anniversary… the whole bureaucracy. This coming September, we are celebrating the 120th year. Part of the activity po, libre po ito, this is a 2020 Government Online Career Fair. Isang activity po ito na binibigay ng civil service para po doon sa mga naghahanap ng trabaho or those who would like to try serving government.”
The CSC official invited all government agencies to participate in the online career fair which will be held on September 14 to 18, 2020.
“Right now, we are encouraging all government agencies to enroll. The period of enrollment is from July 1 to August 14, 2020,” Lizada said, adding that as of July 9, 11 government agencies have already enrolled.
Lizada said last year, there were about 7,327 vacant positons in the government, however, only 5,171 have applied.
“Let us fill your unfilled positions. May programa na po yung gobyerno, Balik Probinsya. Marami na ho tayong mga JOs (Job Orders) at yung ating mga casuals. Kasi hindi na nga ho sila nakakapasok sa gobyerno. Let us open or unfilled positions,” Lizada said as she encouraged government agencies to register and participate in the carreer fair.
“Kami ho sa CSC we are the central personal employment agency. So, we are encouraging government agencies, from July 1 to August 14, please register.”
Comm. Lizada also said that CSC has a tie up with JobStreet.com. She further explained that corresponding government agencies who have enrolled will have an online, one-time seminar on how the system works which will be on August 28 to September 11, 2020.
“Let us help, marami hong nangangailangan ng trabaho ho ngayon. Bigay ho natin sa kanila yung opportunity to serve the government and likewise be financially empowered.”
She encouraged those who have the heart to join the government service to participate in the upcoming online career fair to be conducted September 14 to18, 2020.
Lizada said, interested applicants should sign up with JobStreet.com. “Yung job applicant po kailangan ho meron kayong account sa JobStreet.com. Kung wala naman po kayong account, you can create an account by visiting JobStreet.com and then you click the free sign up icon and follow the instructions.”
The CSC official also stressed the importance of having the right number of people in an agency.
Lizada said there are around 1.8 to 1.9 million government employees, but still lacking in numbers because each agency has an organizational structure that would determine the number of employees needed to run the agency.
“It is very important that we have the correct number of people in a corresponding agency, para ho hindi ho sila mahirapan to serve the public,” adding that government agencies can respond well and do-away with JOs. (PIA-NCR)
