She said a number of high school graduates need further assistance in dealing with companies for possible employment.
Alegado designated Foxter Mindajao to lead the Public Employment and reactivated Service Office and in coordinating with the different business and industrial establishments.
With the incoming opening of SM Mall in the town, Alegado expects a number of job seekers from other towns to head to Consolacion. She stressed, however, that Consolacion residents will be prioritized as far as assistance is concerned. (FREEMAN)
