DOLE Cagayan hires 850 interns amidst pandemic

 

Tuguegarao City, Cagayan – The DOLE Cagayan-Batanes Field Office (CBFO) recently hired a total of 850 government interns under the agency’s Government Internship Program (GIP) despite the effects of the pandemic that has caused a significant economic slump in the province.

Prexie A. Caronan, head of DOLE CBFO, said that the program continuous to open up job opportunities not only to young workers but also to those who lost their jobs due to retrenchment and/or closure of establishments.

“Despite the effects of the pandemic, the DOLE stands to be one of the victors of the many hopeless jobseekers and remains a strong advocate in achieving the government’s thrust of inclusive growth through massive employment generation and poverty reduction. While the DOLE recognizes the right to participation and self-development of the youth, it also ensures the safety and protection of the interns,” she added.

The program provides each worker a stipend of P370.00 per day, accident insurance coverage for one year with the Government Insurance System (GSIS) and Certificate of Completion at the end of the contract.

The interns who also serve as manpower complement are not only expected to augment the government’s services essential in curbing out the negative effects of this global pandemic but also assist in the monitoring of projects as well as in the implementation of DOLE employment facilitation programs such as but not limited to profiling of child laborers, encoding of registrants in the Skills Registry System (SRS), assisting public school and hospital personnel and other functions not highly technical and hazardous in nature.

This is also an opportunity for the interns to learn life skills in the workplace and introduce them to public service as their contribution to nation building.

The GIP is a component of Executive Order (EO) No. 139 s. 1993 under the Kabataan 2000 and DOLE Administrative Order No. 260-15. ###
