Instead of a grand birthday bash, House Deputy Speaker and District I Congresswoman Beng Climaco will spend her natal day today, September 7 with a job fair, making available 4,000 job placements here and abroad.

The job fair, set at the Campion Lecture Hall of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (ADZU) in La Purisima from 8am to 5pm today is in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)-9, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)-9 and the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) under the Office of the City Social Welfare and Development Office.

Some 4,000 job vacancies will be made available for local and overseas employment during the whole day event today. Applicants have pre-registered at the DOLE and PESO offices.

The activity will coincide with the TESDA Fiesta and as an additional highlight, a one-stop shop processing area for authentication of birth records, passport processing and assessment and issuance of skills certificate will also be made available.

Cong. Climaco thought it wise to celebrate her birthday with the people, specifically the job applicants. This is also her way of showing her gratitude to the people and at the same time in pursuit of her continuing advocacy to help provide job opportunities for young graduates and the unemployed.

The lady solon has partnered with TESDA since her assumption into office as District I Representative in the conduct of skills and livelihood trainings for various sectors in the different barangays not only in her 1st district but in the 2nd district as well.

Climaco and the 1st Congressional District Office has been conferred by the TESDA the 2012 Regional Kabalikat Award under the legislative category in grateful recognition of her exemplary contribution in the advancement of technical education and skills development in the country.

No less than TESDA Director General Sec. Joel Villanueva presented to the congresswoman the Regional Kabalikat Award during TESDA’s 18th Anniversary on August 24 at TESDA Women’s Center, Taguig City.

Todate, thousands of women, out of school youth, jobless individuals and other groups from the urban poor sector have been trained through the Climaco-TESDA partnership program and are now helping in the family income. — Marvin Segura
