Good news for Filipino deaf persons who currently don’t have work!
Jobs are open to deaf and mute applicants, male or female, 18 to 35 years old, and at least high school level. Applicants must bring their resumé and/or bio-data with recent picture. Initial screening will be done at the Makati PESO Office.
Last Thursday (September 11), Makati City government held a successful job fair for the deaf and mute at the same PESO Office.
The Lamoiyan Corporation, maker of Hapee Toothpaste, is the main sponsor of the program, which provides opportunities for people with disabilities (PWDs), Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay said. The Filipino firm is set to hire 100 deaf and mute applicants. Hapee Toothpaste is the third biggest and the only Filipino made product being used in the country.
“Through these opportunities, we will not only help boost the Person with Disabilities’ self confidence, but also enable them to be self-reliant and productive members of the community,” Binay said in a statement released Wednesday.
I will feature Lamoiyan Corporation in my succeeding blog posts. Meanwhile, here is a ten-minute YouTube video tour of Makati City taken by Jay Sunico, a Filipino deaf actor in the mid-nineties. He guides us through the bustling and ultra-modern city in sign language. 🙂
