TADIAN, Mountain Province – Qualified residents of the province continue to be deployed for overseas work in Japan under the Join Us for Progress: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs program that aims to provide potential workers with substantial livelihood.
Michelle Kina-ud, local coordinator of the Nihongo language training center in the municipality, said that the latest batch of workers that flew to Japan last Thursday include Froilan Agageo of Lubon, Tadian; Glen Angayen of Ambasing, Sagada and Marvin Seoangan of Padangaan, Besao.
These workers are employed by Nisshin Co., Ltd; Sunshine Corporation, Kubota Takeshi and Goudou Kuroki Farm and will be employed as farmers involved in the cultivation of agriculture facilities and horticulture and plywood manufacturing.
She claimed that the overseas workers underwent the prescribed review of the Nihongo language at the Bulacan-based Sage Asian Language Center for them to master the language before their deployment to the foreign land.
The Join Us for Progress program is a private initiative of the Dominguez family in partnership with the Manila-based Philippine Human Resource Global Information Center (PHGIC) for their deployment to Japan and the Sage Asian Language Center for their Nihongo language training.
Kina-ud said that the latest batch of workers deployed to Japan underwent their initial Nihongo language training in the municipality before pursuing their review lessons in Bulacan prior to their flight.
Aside from the Nihongo language training center in the municipality, the other center is based in Paracelis town to cater to the Nihongo language training needs of interested residents from eastern Mountain Province wanting to land gainful employment in Japan.
Kina-ud urged individuals who completed their Nihongo language training to patiently wait for the next steps to be undertaken by the PHGIC to prepare them for jobs appropriate to their qualifications in Japan in the future since as the latter company is doing its best to match their qualifications and skills to the available jobs in the developed nation.
The deployment of qualified workers from Mountain Province under the program started last April and this will continue until such time that those who completed the Nihongo language training and have passed the required interviews and screening shall have been deployed for their desired work in Japan.
Clark Dexter Badaran, PHGIC general manager, pointed out that it is also important for the potential overseas workers to help themselves by ensuring their mastery of the Nihongo language aside from ensuring they are able to convince their prospective employees that they are suitable for the jobs that are available during their interviews and other related activities.
He assured that the company will continue to look for qualified overseas workers from the different parts of the province who deserve to be deployed to Japan for the available jobs because of the persistence of the ones that are already working in the various farms in the said country over the past several months.
