Several employers, who plan to participate in this year’s JobStart Program, engaged in a forum with Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and PESO Dumaguete Manager Maria Socorro P. Mira at Sidlakang Negros Conference Room, Thursday.
Mayor Remollo encouraged the youth (18-24 year-old who are currently unemployed) to join the JobStart Program starting May 17, 2021 and undergo the 10-day life skills training program, 3 months technical training (with daily allowance) and 3 months internship in partnership with the private employers for possible long term employment.
Through the JobStart Program, participating private employers will have the opportunity to hire interns with life skills that may meet their manpower needs with well-prepared and talented candidates who could eventually be absorbed as employees in the long term.
There will be 2 batches at 50 participants each. The 1st batch will begin training on May 17-28, 2021 and 2nd batch on July 19-30, 2021.
