Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) conducted an orientation seminar for graduating students last October 20, 2014 at exactly 2PM in ICI-CDO Computer Lab 3. Ms. Ana Liza V. Tiglao, Statistician gives her presentation together with her colleague Ms. Amalia T. Paquibo. They presented about the Anti-Illegal Recruitment (AIR) campaign program of the POEA. One of their approaches to its implementation is through massive information dissemination by way of conducting Pre-employment Orientation Seminar (PEOS) in all schools and universities in Cagayan de Oro City. They provided video and powerpoint presentations to enhance everyone’s understanding.
Topics are about becoming a legitimate overseas employment worker. They explain the purpose, the registration and issuance of seafarer’s certificate. The seminar was filled with some questions related to overseas work. POEA representatives did answer specifically each question. The AIR campaign program of the POEA through the conduct of PEOS as they said, hopes to give awareness to the applicants and help them in their decision making in applying for employment overseas. This will also help lessen, if not eliminate the incidence of illegal recruitment in the country.
ICI-CDO graduating students were glad of having such an orientation that could give them enough idea in the future overseas work.
