Valenzuela City residents who are still jobless may now find new opportunities following the revival of the local government’s own online job portal.


The local government on Thursday said that it revived its very own website “to intensify its efforts to encourage Valenzuelanos to go digital even with their job application” and “to connect jobseekers with employers and vice versa.”

“The new and improved Valenzuela Trabaho job portal promises to make job posting and hunting a very pleasant and hassle-free experience for both employers and job seekers alike,” it said.

Unlike its predecessor, the current website features a mobile responsive design, which allows the layout of the job posting to change according to the size of the screen of the mobile device being used for easier browsing and navigation.’

“More importantly, it has a filtered job advertisement feature to help the jobseekers streamline their search and determine which job offer fits their credentials,” the local government said.

While the job portal is only exclusive for the city residents, it is however open to employers regardless of where they operate.

According to the local government, jobseekers can register on the website and should wait for their accounts to be activated within 24 hours. Once done, they can start looking for a job.

Their applications will be then automatically forwarded to the employer if they click the “apply” button of the job posting.

Employers, meanwhile, are required to register their companies and provide all necessary information before posting their job openings. 

A job advertisement is posted in real-time, with the latest ad listed first. An advertisement can be posted for a maximum of three months. After which, it will be deleted if it is not closed or removed by the employer, the local government said.

There are 11 job categories which jobseekers can choose from. These are: industrial and engineering, office and clerical, automotive jobs, accounting and finance, health care, telecommunications, education training, restaurant/food service, construction/facilities, sales and marketing, and technology.

There is also a category for Valenzuela City Hall job openings.

The job portal also features several privileges for its members, such sautomatic invitation to job fairs, free seminars and training, and email and mobile notification of application status.
