“Trabahanap fully embodies ABS-CBN’s mission to be of service to the Filipino as it opens opportunities to a vast number of people looking for livelihood,” said Mark Awiten, head of Trabahanap and the CineMo channel.
The job placement service is available in three platforms— online, on air via CineMo and on INFOplus of ABS-CBN TVplus, and on-ground via job fairs.
“Applying for jobs is easier now because you just have to log in, you no longer have to ‘walk in’ to be interviewed by the employer, and because there are also more jobs available that match an applicant’s skills and his desired job,” noted Awiten.
Among Trabahanap’s features is a geolocation capability that will find job openings near the job seekers’ homes.
“We believe that helping Filipinos find jobs is just as important as giving them the chance to have more time with their families,” said Awiten.
A place of work that is close to home means workers are less stressed with commute and have more money saved from transportation.
Job seekers just need to register and create an account on the website to start using the service.
Trabahanap will join job fairs around the country to give access to job opportunities to those with no internet connection. CineMo will also continue to air job postings at the end of every program on ABS-CBN TVplus. (Story/Photos by: Kane Choa)
