Cagyan de Oro – With the launching of the enhanced PhilJobNet, the government’s official job search portal, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) XI participated in its trainers training and orientation recently.

Joining the activity last March 7 to 8, were DOLE XI Regional Director Joffrey M. Suyao, Davao Regional Employment Focal Lariele P. Arce, and field focal persons.

The new and enhanced feature of PhilJobNet (PJN) was made possible through the partnership of the Bureau of Local Employment and the Servicio Filipino Inc. Group (SFI).

In a statement, Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz said that the new PJN can easily be accessed for free and was also made mobile friendly for easy viewing especially for smartphone users.

PJN now “has a separate log-in for employers, jobseekers, and the web administrator; features jobs for specific clients, such as women, high school graduate, differently-abled workers, and displaced workers; incorporates a career information page; and integrates a Talent Map tool.”

The new PJN can be accessed by jobseekers using their social media accounts such as Facebook and LinkedIn. It now also has advanced search option that can filter job vacancies by location, industry, company name, salary and type of employment.

During the activity in Cagayan de Oro, DOLE XI delegates also won 2nd place during the #AngBagongPJN Facebook photo contest.

PJN can be accessed via and in the Job Search Kiosks located in PESO, DOLE central office, bureau, attached agencies, regional and field offices, Commission on Higher Education, and selected schools in the Region.
