POEA Clarifies Reports of Job Orders For USA and Guam

According to the POEA chief, Jennifer Jardin-Manalili the reports saying that the 13,360 approved job orders for USA in 2009 is not only for nurses. The number includes jobs for other healthcare professionals such as physiotherapist and pharmacists. It also covers available jobs for information technology workers and hospitality workers.

Manalili added that until now, the 13,360 job orders are yet to be filled up. Only
876 (6.5%) out of the 13,360 orders were taken because America is currently experiencing visa retrogression.

The government agency also clarifies reports that appeared in some newspapers regarding job openings for construction workers in the US. The POEA said that there is no demand for construction workers in the US Mainland market. Rather the job orders are for the construction of a military facility in Guam. A new facility is needed for the transfer of the US military base from Okinawa Japan to Guam.

It has been reported that the recruitment for Guam is set to start early this year but according to POEA, the hiring may not happen anytime soon. This is because of the new developments affecting the US and Japan on the issue of a replacement facility for the Futenma Marine base in Okinawa, Japan.

The POEA also informed that there is no truth to the report that there is a demand for Filipino workers in the oil and gas industry of America. You can check the list of approved job orders here: http://www.poea.gov.ph/cgi-bin/JobVacancies/jobsMenu.asp
