US territory Guam opens around 11,500 jobs for Filipinos: DOLE


American territory of Guam opens around 11,500 jobs for Filipinos seeking employment abroad. Prospects for employment in Guam will be bright for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

“In the next 10 years, kailangan po ng around 11,500 workers or more. Two thousand to 3,000 pa lang nave-verify namin na job orders. ‘Yung made-deploy po ay depende na po sa recruitment agency at tsaka sa pag-approve ng US visa sa US Embassy,” Labor Attaché in Los Angeles, Armi Evangel Peña said.

Peña, who heads the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Los Angeles, California in the United States (US) bared the news to the Department of Labor Employment.

“Kailangan po nating ng mga electricians, welders, HVAC and refrigeration mechanics, construction equipment mechanics, plumbers and pipe fitters, operating engineers or heavy equipment operators, and of course carpenters, reinforcing metal workers, structural steel workers, camp cooks…[and all types of] engineers,” she enumerated.

Majority of the job openings are in the construction industry. Having the right skills and work experience are crucial factors in landing a job in Guam.

“Sa katunayan, minamadali na po tayo ng Guam na ma-deploy lahat. Talagang gustong-gusto po nila ang Pilipino dahil very hardworking at maparaan ang Pilipino kumpara sa ibang lahi," Peña added.
