At least 53 newly graduated Romblomanons were accepted by the Department of Labor and Employment- Romblon Provincial Office for this year’s Government Internship Program (GIP).
An orientation was held last April 14 in Odiongan, Romblon attended also by PESO Managers from different LGUs to show their full support for the department’s program.
GIP beneficiaries will be assigned to government agencies/entities like the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Romblon State University (RSU), and Local Government Units (LGUs).
According to DOLE in their press release, this program aims to immerse fresh graduates in government, as well as hone their sense of leadership and public service.
During the orientation, Provincial Director Dr. Carlo B. Villaflores reiterated the objectives and guidelines of the program, as well as General Labor Standards, work ethics, and professionalism. He added that the said program since its first implementation developed competitive and competent interns.
