Phil-JobNet posted a record high 180,190 job vacancies in October!

The government’s official job portal, the Phil-JobNet posted a record high job vacancies in October. In a news release, Labor & Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said that 180,190 job vacancies were uploaded and made available by employers both in the local and overseas labor market in October. More details after the jump.

Baldoz credited the upsurge in the number of vacancies posted in the Phil-JobNet facility to the continuing campaign of the DOLE and its regional offices and the country’s Public Employment Service Offices encouraging employers to post their job vacancies in the online job portal for free.

Records from the Bureau of Labor & Employment (BLE), which hosts the online job facility, showed that in October, the “hot” jobs for the month included jobs for call center agents, with 22,144 vacancies; technical support staff (7,144); production/factory workers (6,599); product specialists (6,423); service crew (6,048); cashiers (5,379); merchandisers (4,453); sales clerks (4,282); customer service assistants (3,697); sales executives (2,342); security guards (2,243); customs representatives (2,000); utility workers (1,804); marketing specialists (1,580); janitors (1,469); laborers (1,425); promo salespersons (1,307); promo staff (1,302); maintenance crew (1,212); masons (1,095); software instructors (1,070); office clerks (1,040); stock clerks (1,026); warehouse clerks (1,020); production technicians (1,000); collectors (964); and drivers, government (909).

BLE records also showed that the top skills for hire registered during the month were service crew (3,558), cashiers (3,327), production machine operators (2,741), production/factory workers (2,718), sales clerks (2,657), salesladies (1,662), data encoders (1,316), welders (1,149), office clerks (1,064), staff nurses (840), merchandisers (717), baggers (610), call center agents (567), pipe fitters (510), secretaries (489), checkers (482), and customer service assistants (451).

The labor chief encourages job seekers to try applying for a job through the Phil-JobNet assuring them that vacancies posted at the Phil-JobNet are for real and not bogus jobs as the DOLE performs background check on the employer before the vacancies are posted.

Baldoz added that a vacant position in the Phil-JobNet stays online for 30 days, after which it is removed.

The Phil-JobNet also has feature called ‘skills for hire’ which is similar to the “yellow pages” or bulletin board where skilled persons and own-account workers advertise their skills and services in the hope employers will consider and hire them. (DOLE/RJB/SDL/PIA-NCR)
