In celebration of the National Correctional Consciousness Week anchored on the theme “Serbisyong may Malasakit at Kalidad, Alay sa Piitan at Komunidad”, the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) conducted the first ever job assistance information campaign among 74 persons deprived of liberty (PDLs) at the BDJ covered court, yesterday, October 23.
The purpose of the said information campaign is to prepare the PDLs once they are reintegrated into their respective communities which PESO Supervising Labor and Employment Officer Maria Eva Basalo emphasized in her short message. Basalo also assured the PDLs that their office is always ready to accommodate them and extend them all the assistance that are within the resources of the PESO to provide.
PESO Data Entry Machine Operator Ariel Masamoc discussed the different assistance that their office can provide, such as creating their resume up to the employment process.
Towards the end of the program, the PDLs were requested to fill out assessment forms that will help PESO to find a suitable employer for them in the future.
