The first of the six sessions on career and employment coaching for graduating high school and college students started yesterday at the Santiago Delmo Memorial High School in Zamboanguita, Negros Oriental.
The activities aim to assist high school students in choosing the courses that match their skills while helping steer graduating college students towards the right career path.
The next session will be conducted at the Dauin National High School and Dauin Science High School on March 12, Salngan High School and Science High School in Zamboanguita on March 14, and Decor Carmeli High School in Zamboanguita on March 19.
Topics to be discussed include the current labor market needs, and the character traits that students need to hone, Nanette Tindoc, provincial PESO focal person, said.
Anita Melicor of the Department of Labor and Employment will take up the career and employment coaching topics, while Tindoc will discuss the rights and responsibilities of children as outlined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The students will also be oriented on Republic Act 9208 or the Anti-Human Trafficking Act, for them to be aware of their rights and keep them from becoming victims of illegal recruiters, Tindoc said.
Three sessions were conducted early this year in three schools in Bagong town: the Holy Family High School, Ong Chee Tee High School, and the San Miguel National High School.*RG
