TESDA-Batangas Sponsors BJB Re-training
“TESDA is JOBS”. This meaningful line reflects one of the objectives of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority which is to have a rewarding employment of the students and scholars at least 6 months to one year after their graduation. With this aim, the TESDA Blue Desk Job Bridging (BJB) Program was conducted last May 19, 2010 at Lipa City Colleges, Annex Building to re-train the Blue Job Desk Personnel from the different schools in Batangas who is responsible in offering assistance to the graduates on finding employment thru referral to or job matching so that they will not only have a better future, but also contribute to the country's progress.
According to Dr. Carlos C. Flores, TESDA Batangas Provincial Director, Blue Job Desk Bridging Program provides ways on how the graduates would land on reliable job which is fitted with the course they have finished. Meanwhile, Dr. Teodoro M. Gatchalian, Regional Director of TESDA Region IV-A emphasized that their goals do not end on providing the students the knowledge and skills but also to guide them in assessing job opportunities based on their skills and competencies which is a part of their social responsibility to the people.
The talk and training about BJB Based System was spearheaded by Mr. Jeffrey Ryan Malonda, Technical expert from JobsDB, a No. 1 Online Recruiting Company in Asia Pacific. Mr. Malonda expounded that TESDA Blue Desks are literally blue tables or booths which can be found in TESDA offices, schools and other areas which is supervised by the blue-clad TESDA personnel. This is where the students could avail of services such as career guidance, referral and placement, OJT and apprenticeship. The competent staff designated at each Blue desk assists the graduates in uploading their resumes to the E-TESDA portal where it will be available for the local and international companies in JobsDB database searching for manpower. It can also serve as a venue for companies to post their job vacancies for those who are looking for jobs. He also proposed that the schools should have this kind of program so that they could trace and monitor their graduates in the real work world through the feedback provided by the hiring companies.
