DOLE-RO I prepares DOST scholars for the FiRE


City of San Fernando, La Union – The  DOLE-Regional Office I and the DOST-RO I partnered anew to provide the latter’s graduating scholars with career and employment coaching (CEC). 

In an event dubbed Seminar on Job Hunting Strategies on February 13 at the Oasis Country Resort in this city, 55 DOST-Science Education Institute (SEI) scholars were informed on various topics that included career management and development, Project Jobs Fit (PJF) 2022, Labor Market Information (LMI), labor education, organizational communication, human behavior in organization, life skills and work ethics and personality development. 

Mock interviews were also conducted to enhance the participants’ communication skills and let them experience the most critical part of the entire job search process. 

DOST-SEI scholars have high aptitude in Science and Mathematics, and are willing to pursue careers in the fields of science and technology. 

CEC, one of the strategies employed by the DOLE to bridge the gap between education and work, enables the youth to make appropriate career, training and educational choices, thereby gaining greater access to work opportunities that are aligned with their interests, values and abilities. 

“Graduating students are advised to take advantage of the DOLE’s CEC services. The program becomes even more relevant with the emergence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (FiRE),” DOLE-RO I Regional Director Nathaniel V. Lacambra said.  

The FiRE, he said, is bringing unprecedented impacts in businesses, government, households, education and other sectors on a global scale. 

“We need to prepare our workers for both challenges and opportunities posed by technological breakthroughs so they can fully benefit from them,” the Regional Director said. 

Results of the PJF 2022 show that among the emerging jobs are business process analysts, data scientists, design engineers, electronic mail and chat support agents, evisceration processors, genomicists, hair transplant technicians, mobile application developers, nano technologists, order tracker/coordinator, search engine optimization analysts, social media analysts and transport network vehicle service (TNVS) drivers.  

Last year, 181 DOST scholars were coached through the La Union and Western Pangasinan Field Offices of the DOLE, bringing the total beneficiaries to 236.  END/Arly Sta. Ana-Valdez with report from Fredderick L. Gaerlan, DOLE-LUFO
