JobStreet.com Inks Pledge for Safe and Real Overseas Jobs with POEA
To help Filipino jobseekers find their dream jobs overseas, JobStreet.com, the number one job site in the Philippines, signed up a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to promote “safe and real jobs” with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), the government agency that promotes and monitors overseas employment of the country's labor expatriates.
POEA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac and Mary Grace Colet, country manager of JobStreet.com led the MOU signing last February in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
In an exclusive interview with Colet, she points out, “This partnership is a testament of JobStreet.com’s mission to help improve lives of Filipino jobseekers who aspire to find better lives through better careers overseas. We will work with POEA to ensure that only overseas jobs from licensed agencies will be found on the website. We will also support POEA’s on-going anti-Illegal recruitment awareness and education campaigns.”
The leading job site released the results of its survey among POEA-licensed agencies early this year. According to the said study, nine out of ten of overseas recruitments officials said that there will be more overseas jobs in 2013. The said study also noted around 80% of overseas jobs will be for service workers.
