QUEZON CITY, (PIA) –The regional office of the Department of Labor & Employment (DOLE) in the National Capital Region (NCR) recently conducted a series of career guidance advocacy to various schools in the City of Parañaque.

The activity aims to help students learn the demands the demands of the labor market that will enable them to make informed career choices.

DOLE-NCR’s Employment Promotion and Workers Welfare Division conducted  two-week career guidance sessions as part of the strategies of the DOLE in addressing the job and skills mismatch concerns.

During the conduct of the sessions, students from the different curriculum strands learned about the labor market demands in Metro Manila, including jobs that are related to Fourth Industrial Revolution (4th IR) such as science and technology-based careers that cater to automation and artificial intelligence.

Other key employment generators (KEGs) in NCR such as in Wholesale & Retail Trade, Health & Wellness, and Construction were also discussed, highlighting the need for technology-based professions from said KEGs to cope with the post-pandemic demands of the labor market.

Further, DOLE-NCR also shared the demands for bilingual workers that surfaced from the sectors of Hotel, Restaurant, & Tourism; Wholesale & Retail Trade; as well as in Health & Wellness, signifying a paradigm shift of the labor market in need of a multifaceted workforce.

Participants, including school personnel, were all appreciative of the lectures provided by the DOLE-NCR speakers. They said that it will help their students to be job ready as they will be able to plan for their career path.

The conduct of seminar advocacies on Career Guidance and Employment Coaching is a regular activity of  local government unit’s Public Employment Service Offices.

Last year, a total 335,815 students and jobseekers benefitted from the seminar advocacies, according to Ryan Roberto Delos Reyes, senior labor and employment officer at the DOLE-NCR. (dole-ncr/pia-ncr)
