The Provincial Government of La Union through the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) teamed up with the Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University – Mid La Union Campus
(DMMMSU-MLUC) Trabaho Center in launching the first Find Jobs La Union Caravan on September 22, 2023 at DMMMSU-MLUC Covered Court, Catbangen, City of San Fernando, La Union to further open opportunities for kaprobinsiaan to get employed.

The event brought more employment opportunities and government services closer to job seekers including the new graduates of 2023 in one venue. The Find Jobs La Union Caravan held in DMMMSUMLUC was spearheaded by Provincial PESO Manager, Ms. Charito C. Dator together with Mr. Rowell B. Timoteo, Labor and Employment Officer III, DMMMSU-MLUC Chancellor
Dr. Eduardo C. Corpuz, Student Affairs Services (SAS) Head, Dodilyn D. Bermudez and Career and Placement Service in-charge, Ms. Alice C. Cadwising.

In the message of Gov. Raphaelle Veronica “Rafy” Ortega-David delivered by Executive Assistant IV, Justo “Tito” Orros III, Gov. Rafy expressed, “This caravan is not just about finding jobs, it’s
about building careers, nurturing dreams, and securing your tomorrow, securing the future of La Union for La Union and its people. Aside sa jobs fair, let’s take advantage of this activity to register sa ating innovative na Find Jobs Portal ng La Union for future online job opportunities. Gayundin,
let’s visit the booths of our National Line Agencies and avail of their one-stop shop services today.”

DMMMSU- MLUC Representative, Ms. Vida Joyce L. Mangaoang, Counselor, COT, delivered Dr. Corpuz message “Previously we call this activity a Jobs Fair. To call it now as a Caravan sounds
more interesting. In a caravan we can picture the desert, camels, groups of people and merchants travelling together. To travel in a caravan ensures the travellers’ safe journey toward their destination. In the same way, it is our hope as one people of La Union that everyone here will be able to successfully reach your destination as jobseekers, employers and stakeholders.”

Ms. Mangaoang expressed her sincere gratitude to PESO-La Union for organizing this great opportunity for all. During the event, the Find Jobs La Union Caravan logged 231 jobseekers that underwent job interviews in the 16 employers from La Union and nearby provinces, 54 clients were provided desk services from SSS, Phil-Health, Pag-Ibig Fund, NBI and DOLE, 15 jobseekers were referred to TESDA for Skills Training and 14 jobseekers were declared Hired on the Spot. A total of 892 job vacancies from the 16 employers were offered to all jobseekers.

Gov. Rafy and her call for #LaUnionPROBINSYAnihan continues to empower the workforce development in the province by harnessing digitalization for PESO to improve its operation and
services of the office in linking jobseekers, employers, and clients with better employment facilitation and service delivery.
