TACLOBAN CITY– As part of its development program for the youth sector of the city, the Tacloban City local government deployed on Tuesday, July 4, 8 beneficiaries for the second semester of the Government Internship Program (GIP) to different city government offices.
According to the Public Employment Service Office (PESO), which facilitated the deployment, the grantees will work for six months until December of this year and will receive a remuneration equal to the job order workers of the city government, or about P 375 per day.

For the first semester of this year, covering the months of January to June, 10 grantees availed of the program and were “absorbed” into the workforce of the local government.
The GIP is a special employment program that aims to provide young workers, particularly poor or indigent young workers ages 18–30, with an opportunity to work in the government service.

For those interested in applying to the program, the PESO enumerated the following requirements: High school applicants must provide a copy of their Form 137 or report card, live birth, and employment clearance from their Barangay, while college-level or graduate applicants must present a copy of their TOR, live birth, and barangay employment clearance.

Applications are accepted at the PESO, located on the ground floor of the USAID Building at Kanhuraw Hill. The next deployment under the program will be held next year.
Meanwhile, the PESO updated that slots for the TUPAD and Jobstart programs have already been filled out and will start deployment soon. The TUPAD has 257 beneficiaries, while Jobstart has 100. (TACLOBAN CITY INFORMATION OFFICE)
