MANILA, May 15 -– Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz on Tuesday lauded the DOLE-NCR CAMANAVA Field Office for its efforts in reducing unemployment and underemployment rates in the country.

Baldoz said DOLE-NCR CAMANAVA’s seminar, "Orientation-Workshop on Career Employment Coaching for Guidance Counselors", held at the Bulwagang Katipunan of the Caloocan City Hall, shall significantly enhance the implementation of CGAP.

"At this stage when the DOLE is going full blast with its partners in implementing the convergence program that is CGAP, it helps that all DOLE regional and field offices are on board the program which is one of the key four strategies to address jobs-skills mismatch," Baldoz said.

"We will all gain from better understanding and appreciating the different employment programs of the DOLE and use these understanding in instensifying career coaching in private and public schools in the CAMANAVA area," Baldoz added.

A total of 42 guidance counselors, PESO managers, from the cities of Caloocan, Malabon, Valenzuela, and the municipality of Navotas, as well as DOLE-NCR Assistant Regional Director (ARD) Nelson C. Hornilla and staff, attended and agreed on the timeliness and relevance of the recently held seminar-training by the DOLE-NCR CAMANAVA.

It is part of the DOLE regional office's strategies to address the unemployment and underemployment rates in Metro Manila that are quite high compared with other regions.

ARD Hornilla said the training-seminar will equip the guidance counselors with skills on convincing the youth on the different career options they can consider.

"Guidance counselors play a very important role in helping the youth to clearly identify the career paths they must take. This is the very reason why we would like to equip you with strategies and techniques which you can use to benefit our students,” he added. (PNA)
