LGU Marawi readies job opportunities for tech-voc finishers

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)--Following the mass graduation of at least 300 completers of the technical vocational (tech-voc) courses offered by the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education-Technical Education and Skills Development (MBHTE-TESD), the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of the city government here conveyed its full assurance of helping the graduates get job opportunities and utilize the skills they gained.

PESO Head Cabsaran Pacasum Jr. told the tech-voc graduates to come to his office to find out about jobs they could get. He stressed that his office is always welcome to receive them whenever they come to visit.

"Nandito ang Public Employment Services Office para tumulong sa 300 [graduates] na maghahanap ng trabaho after their graduation," said Pacasum. 

(The Public Employment Services Office is here to help the 300 [graduates] find jobs after their graduation)

Such was also affirmed by MBHTE-TESD Lanao del Sur Provincial Director Asnawi Bato, who explained that the difference between the mass graduation of tech-voc trainees and other graduation ceremonies they had was the personal appearance of the PESO head in this city. 

He said that because Pacasum was there, the office would definitely get a list of all tech-voc graduates, especially those who got money from the Bangsamoro Scholarship Program, which could lead to job opportunities.

"Automatically, kukunin niya [Pacasum] ang listahan ng ating mga graduates under the Bangsamoro Scholarship Program. After having the list of graduates, most probably, he will refer itong listahan ng names ng graduates sa possible industries and potential jobs na pwede sila magland," said Bato. 

(Automatically, he [Pacasum] will get the list of graduates under the Bangsamoro Scholarship Program. After having the list of graduates, he will probably refer this list of names to possible industries and potential jobs where they can land)

Apart from the city government here, the Bangsamoro Transition Authority’s Member of Parliament, Jannat "Basit Abbas" Mimbantas, also stated that although the Bangsamoro government has just been established, it can still provide something for the tech-voc graduates through the existence of 15 ministries and many agencies under its helm.

This, as he anticipated the graduates using their skills and training to benefit society and the Bangsamoro people.

"The emergence of the Bangsamoro government is not for the MILF nor for the MNLF. Sa atin lahat ang Bangsamoro government (The Bangsamoro government is for all of us), for the Muslims and non-Muslims. This is intended for our people, generations, and children. Sila ang makikinabang sa (They will be the ones to benefit from the) Bangsamoro government," said Mimbantas. (CRG/PIA-10/Lanao del Sur)
