The local government of Pasig City and leading online job portal JobStreet officially sealed their partnership that seeks to continue empowering jobseekers and providing jobs that matter to Pasigueños amid the pandemic.
This was done through a virtual ceremonial signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), led by Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto and JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip Gioca.
Under the MOU, new and existing Pasig-based employers are entitled to free monthly job posting credits on JobStreet. This initiative, in collaboration with Pasig’s Public Employment Service Office, aims to help employers find the right candidates through JobStreet that has a large pool of jobseekers. The initiative will run for the next three years.
“The pandemic has affected a lot of our employers and jobseekers and we want to help them in every way possible. This partnership has come at an opportune time so we are grateful to JobStreet for this initiative — it supports our goal of empowering Pasigueños through good employment opportunities that could enable them achieve a higher quality of life in the years to come,” said Sotto.
To launch opportunities in Pasig to the public, JobStreet in partnership with Pasig City is launching a dedicated microsite where Pasigueños can browse job vacancies and submit applications from the comfort of their homes. Opportunities that will be posted on the microsite are varying from full time, part time, to work from home jobs. Jobseekers can also explore career tools and motivational resources.
“It has always been JobStreet’s advocacy to provide every Filipino with jobs that matter and support government initiatives for our job seekers. It’s an honor that the City Government of Pasig through Mayor Vico Sotto have trusted us in this initiative and we’re hoping that through this program, we will be able to help not only the jobseekers but also the employers during this time,” shared Gioca.
JobStreet has always been supportive of government initiatives that aim to boost the labor market, especially in these challenging times. Recently, it has likewise partnered with the Civil Service Commission to host a nationwide Virtual Career Fair for government jobs as part of helping displaced workers.
