Good news to those unemployed professionals seeking for a job! The Philippine government is hiring at least 74,000 teacher, health professionals, engineering personnel, and Army members.
The Department of Education would employ 18,238 more teachers for Grades 1-10 and another 21, 858 senior high school teachers nationwide.
According to Deped Undersecretary Jesus Lorenzo Mateo, K-10 teachers need to be licensed. For those who would teach senior high school, they are given 5 years to pass the licensure exam for them to be regularized.
"Yung mga teachers natin, dinedeploy yan kung saan yung nangangailangan na eskwelahan. Ibig sabihin, hindi sila pwede mamili ng eskwelahan na malapit sa bahay nila kung hindi naman nangangailangan (ng teacher) yung eskwelahan," he said. (Our teachers would be deployed on which school has a vacancy. It means they cannot choose a school close to their home if that school is not needing a teacher.)
