Career advancement attained thru SPES
by Patrick T. Rillorta

Three hundred fifty students were chosen by the city’s Public Employment and Services office (PESO) as recipients of this year’s Special Program for the Employment of Students SPES), a joint project of the local government and the Department of Labor and Employment.

Baguio Manager Jose L. Atanacio said his office will be finalizing the list of the SPES beneficiaries this year, which will be posted in three conspicuous areas at City Hall.

He said of the 350 SPES beneficiaries, 114 are availing the program for the first time while 235 are either second, third, or fourth time recipients.

The first batch of SPES beneficiaries will start working at City Hall department and private establishments on April 24 up to June 5 while the second batch will work from June 13 to July 25.

Based on data obtained from the PESO, 540 students registered for the program but only 509 individuals took the qualifying examination administered by DOLE representatives. One hundred fifteen passed the exam.

Further, only 205 of 285 beneficiaries attend the required orientation.

Atanacio said interested SPES applicants must always check at the PESO bulletin board to be notified of the schedule of filing of application.

The amended SPES law also provided for the extended period of employment. From the previous 20 to 52 days, SPES beneficiaries may now be employed from 20 to 78 days except during Christmas vacation when employment is from 10 to 15 days only.

Guzman also said the services rendered during the period of employment relevant and related to the course of the beneficiary may have equivalent academic and practicum or on-the-job training credits as may be determined by appropriate government agencies; while the period of employment of SPES beneficiaries who were eventually hired as employees by the same employer shall form part of their probationary period.
