City Hall in need of over 200 workers to fill vacant items
by PNA release

Baguio City’s Human Resource Management Office (HRMO) is urging job seekers to look at the various vacant permanent positions in the city government.

Assistant HRM Officer Edith Dawaten said the city government is opening over 200 permanent positions spread across City Hall’s 18 departments.

She said that some of the vacancies have been published and some are under deliberation by the personnel selection board.

“There are many vacancies for nurses,” she said.

Dawaten also cited a vacancy for Disability Affairs Officer, a post that has been recently created to handle the affairs and needs of persons with disabilities.

She added that the city government is also implementing a new system of recruitment, which subjects applicants to a rigid process, based on instructions from the Civil Service Commission.

All applicants for the vacant positions will go through the pre-employment process, which includes technical, personality, psychological, and critical thinking tests, aside from an examination fit for each position.

Dawaten said the new hiring process is even more crucial for higher positions, starting from salary grade 22.

She said an executive order of the CSC is encouraging local government units to implement the pre-employment, personality, and critical thinking tests.

“Because we know this is needed by the city, the mayor issued an administrative order approving the guidelines for the conduct of the exams by a psychometrician, who is licensed to conduct exams on personality test and interpret the results,” Dawaten said.

“Although it’s really tedious, this is an improvement in the city’s recruitment process,” she added.

Baguio City’s new tourism officer, Aloysius Mapalo, was among the first ones to undergo the process.

Dumaan ako sa butas ng karayom. I had two separate examinations, two separate interviews, and other processes, which took about a month before a decision was made,” Mapalo said.

Mapalo was a professor and dean of the Engineering Department of the University of the Cordilleras, Director for Creative Production, and dean of UC Student Affairs before he decided to join government.

Councilor Joel Alangsab, who chairs the committee on governmental affairs and a member of the personnel selection board, said that in joining the government, the applicant’s qualification is given more weight.
