SUMMMER JOBS 2011 FOR STUDENTS
The annual Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES) of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has started in coordination of Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr., and Public Employment Service Office (PESO).
Last year the PESO was able to employ 261 SPES beneficiary-students who worked for Local Government Units (LGU) and private establishments.
This early, the PESO has conducted examinations and interviews for the qualified students.
“Learn and earn…ang SPES ay taun-taon nating ginagawa para maturuan at matulungan ang mga estudyante natin na magkaroon ng experience at mapagkakakitaan. Ang kita ay tulong para sa pag-aaral, ang experience naman ay para sa future career nila,” ani Mayor Gordon.
The new student-beneficiaries this year are going to start working on April 11.
Through SPES, Students ages 15 to 21 years old are given the opportunity to experience the real workplace environment in their job-training and earn money at the same time.
