Make some noise! Ang smartphone application para sa mga Pinoy upang makaiwas sa illegal recruiters ay narito na!

Ilang linggo na rin ang lumipas nang i-launch ng Philippine Overseas Employment Administration o POEA ang kanilang mobile application na sadyang malaki ang tulong upang mailayo ang mga Pilipino mula sa mapanamantalang illegal recruiters.

Hindi maikakailang maraming Pilipino ang handang kumagat sa pagkakataong makapagtrabaho sa ibayong-dagat sa paniniwalang andun ang lalagot sa kabanat ng kahirapan ng buhay.

Mabuti na lang naisipang sumabay ng POEA sa alon ng makabagong teknolohiya. Sa tinagal-tagal ng panahon ng paggamit natin ng cellphone, ito at may makabuluhang application na. Madadagdagan na ang silbi ng cellphone natin bukod sa maghapunang pagso-social media at pagtitext.

Sa pamamagitan ng POEA mobile app, maari nating i-check ang kasalukuyang status ng lisensya ng recruitment agency sa mismong sandaling kausap natin sila. Gayundin, kung may job order ba o wala ang trabahong iniaalok nila sa atin.

At kung mapadpad man tayo sa mall o saan mang establishment na may free wifi, mas mainam pang basahin natin ang mga articles sa mobile app para malaman natin kung paano makakaiwas, kung ano ang modus operandi ng mga illegal recruiters at kung paano at saang POEA office tayo maaring dumulog.

Sa panahon ngayon, madali nang maging matalino. Impormasyon na ang lumalapit, naghihintay na lang na pansinin natin.

At oo nga pala, may isa pang silbi ang POEA Mobile App. I-click mo lang ang logo ng developer nito, ang WorkAbroad.ph at maari ka nang mag-hanap at mag-apply ng trabaho sa bansang gusto mo.

Whew! Ka-simple lang, hane? Libre pa! Kung Android phone ang gamit mo, i-download mo ang mobile app sa Google Play Store at sa IOS naman kung iPhone ang iyong gamit. Syempre pwede din ito sa tablets at iPads.

POEA suspends two recruitment agencies

Posted by:

POEA has been vigilant in prosecuting recruitment agencies who prey upon Filipinos who wish to work overseas. This time, two recruitment agencies, namely Dalandan International Manpower, Inc. and Apex Grande International Labor Agency were found committing violations prior to deployment of Filipino applicants.

Dalandan International Manpower, Inc. was found misrepresenting two household service workers bound to Dubai, UAE. The applicants sign their contracts stating their salary as $US400 but was informed that they will just be receiving lower than what was stated.

Meanwhile, Apex Grande International Labor Agency was reported to have collected placement fee from a nurse-applicant, despite that his deployment is in British Columbia, Canada where placement fee is not required to be paid by a foreign worker. The agency reportedly asked US$6,500 from the applicant-nurse.

POEA Warns About Scam Seeking Worm Pickers in Canada

Posted by:

 

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration advises Filipino workers to be wary of an employment scam allegedly operated by two recruitment companies based in Taiwan and Canada.

The Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Toronto, Canada reported that a group of Filipino workers in Taiwan were recruited by Metrix Recruitment and GERS Global supposedly to work as worm pickers in Canada in exchange of US$10,000. The OFWs arrived in Canada only to find out that there were no jobs waiting for them.

The recruiters collected from the workers an additional US$2,000 for another job that also turned out to be non-existent.
