by Jedidiah Regacho

The Department of Labor and Employment has overshot their goal of providing 18,000 jobs in Cordillera from January to June, reaching a total of to 20,224 jobs.

According to the Labor Force Survey of April 2009, the percentage of employment increased from 95.1 in April 2008 to 95.8 employed this year. The unemployment rate was 4.9 percent last year and was recorded at 4.2 percent this year. The underemployment rate was at, 20.6 percent last year and 17.9 percent taken at the same period this year.

Antonette Ocon, information officer of DOLE, said that the decreased rate of underemployment this year is a good indicator.

The 20,224 employed in the region can be attributed to the programs of the Public Employment Service Office. The 2,605 of them were the results of job fairs from January to June. The number represents jobs for infrastructure projects of government as well as for self-employment.

The service sectors absorbed most of the applicants despite the world economic crisis.

“The Philippines is not as badly affected as the USA, not all sectors are affected but the main affected are the manufacturing industries,” Ocon said.

Some of the job positions offered were for hotel workers, call center agents, sales representatives/assistants, office workers, English tutors/teachers, laborers, cooks, engineers, nurses, factory workers, welders, mason, pipe fitters, heavy equipment operators, and drivers.
