NASA 180,000 local jobs ang bukas para sa high school graduates, ayon sa Department of Labor and Employment- Bureau of Local Employment (DOLE-BLE).

Karamihan sa mga bakanteng trabaho, na naka-post sa PhilJobNet, ay permanente, ngunit mayroon ding contractual.

Kabilang sa mga trabahong ito, hanggang May 2023, ay production machine operators, call center agents, production workers, domestic helpers, production helpers, service crew, sales associate professionals, quality assurance inspectors, cashiers, at technical assistants.

Ayon sa DOLE-BLE, base sa isang pag-aaral, ang mga trabahong iniaalok sa senior high school graduates ay limitado sa blue-collar positions.

“In 2019, the DOLE, with JobStreet, we conducted a study on the employability of senior high school graduates in the Philippines from the employer’s perspective. Research shows that the companies are open to employing SHS graduates, however, the positions are limited to clerical work, for customer service representatives with script, massage therapists, etc,” pahayag ni Alexis Gabriel Habito ng DOLE sa House Committee on Basic Education.

“Employers deem that the current SHS graduates do not have skills for work, hence are only field for rank and file or blue-collar positions. The study recommended improving the SHS curriculum to enhance competency building through subjects that are focused per strand or the intended work,” dagdag pa niya.
