Philippine Government Has 74,000 Job Openings

Job alert: For fresh grads and those who aspire to work in the government, here is your chance to get hired as many of the government agencies have opened thousands of job vacancies.

Just in time for the upcoming graduation of college students, the Philippine government is seeking to hire at least 74,000 employees which include health professionals, teachers, engineering personnel and members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

So far, the Department of Education is in need of at least 18,238 more teachers for Grades 1 to 10, and some 21,858 more educators for senior high school across the country.

The Education Undersecretary, Jesus Lorenzo Mateo, noted during a brief interview that applicants must be licensed teachers to be a regular employee.

Mateo cited that job applicants who will be hired for entry level positions will receive as much as P19,000.00 monthly salary. However, they must be willing to be assigned elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the Department of Health (DOH) is likewise seeking to fill up at least 20,000 job vacancies in hospitals and public health centers all over the countries according to Health Secretary, Paulyn Jean Ubial.

Ubial further claimed that it was only recently when the DOH has just hired at least 23,000 different health professionals which include doctors, midwives, dentists and nurses, but he added that there is still the need to hire more professionals.

She also advised that interested applicants should submit requirements to the hospitals or public health centers’ offices where they would want to be affiliated with.

On the other hand, the Philippine Army is seeking to fill approximately 14,000 job vacancies for officers, engineering units and new candidate soldiers according to Army spokesperson, Col. Benjamin Hao.

Hao also cited the army’s enticing monthly salary amounting to more or less P16,000.00, which an applicant would start to receive once the training begins.

Interested applicants for the AFP may visit recruitment centers in Fort Bonifacio in NCR, Camp Lapu-Lapu in the Visayas and Camp Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro, Hao claimed.
