The Public Employment Service Office in Bacolod City has deployed 5,652 overseas and local workers through special recruitment activities and jobs fair conducted last year, a PESO monitoring and deployment report showed yesterday.
Moises de la Cruz, PESO manager, said 2,908 of the workers were deployed locally and 2,744 through recruitment agencies like Placewell International, Pisces International Manpower Services, MSL Star Human Resources Corporation, EastWest, Yes Human Resource, Lead Resources, New Era, Greenfields, Augustin International, Career Planners, FSL International, and Blazing Star.
De la Cruz said overseas companies hired skilled workers like electricians, plumbers, masons, technicians, merchandisers, cleaners, tile setters, heavy operators, drivers, service crews, domestic helpers, welders, nurses, engineers, waiters, carpenters, pipefitters, and cashiers.
Local employment, on the other hand, was channeled through Royal Dragon for security guards and job orders at the Bacolod City local government unit, he also said.
However, he said many job seekers were hired locally but were not recorded at PESO since the applicants go directly to their companies when they see the announcements and notices at their office.
Meanwhile, representatives of Pisces International will be in Bacolod City next week for their SRA, bringing in 40 companies from Dubai, Qatar, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia, de la Cruz said.
The agency needs duct insulators, carpenters,architects,welders,engineers,drivers,spray painters,service clerks,auto electricians,project managers,house maids, and plumbers, he said.
