For those who are used to typing the old website address of the PH embassy in Riyadh (www.philembassy.riyadh.org), you will be redirected to the new website address but do not worry, though, as nothing has been changed in the content of the website.
The layout of the new website is now similar tot what we have in the Department of Foreign Affairs’website. But features and notices are still arranged in the same way as it was in the old internet address.

POEA Mobile App Laban sa Illegal Recruiters

Posted by:
POEA Mobile App may be found at Google Play Store and IOS.  This may be downloaded for free.

POEA Mobile App may be found at Google Play Store and IOS. This may be downloaded for free.

 

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.
