Government intern’s work pays off
In 2016, twenty-four year old Filito “Renz” Padoc, Jr. graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) major in Human Resource Development Management at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela. 
 
Upon learning of the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) screening applications for Government Internship Program (GIP), Padoc rushed to the nearest DOLE field office in Caloocan, along with his friends from college to submit a resume in the hopes of an employment opportunity. 
 
The GIP is a youth-bridging program of the DOLE that gives opportunity to the youth ages 18-30 years, particularly those who came from the poor and indigent families to demonstrate their talents and skills in the field of public service for a maximum period of 6 months. GIP beneficiaries receive a monetary allowance amounting to 75 percent of the existing minimum wage applicable to their assigned DOLE office.   
 
Padoc successfully passed the screening process among the other candidates who applied for the internship. Eventually, Padoc was assigned to Leticia D. Dilao, Supervising Labor and Employment Officer in DOLE field office in Caloocan. 
 
As an intern at the DOLE, Padoc learned various administrative tasks and coordination with employees. He gained knowledge on archiving documents, encoding of draft orders, and preparing of communications for incoming and outgoing labor cases. 
 
In May of the same year, Padoc was promoted to a project-based employee in the same office. In an interview with his supervisor, Dilao was impressed with Padoc’s work attitude and performance. She said: “Renz would sought out ways to deliver the output. He was very reliable and systematic.” 
 
The immediate supervisor also commended Padoc’s artistic inclination to support the office apart from his clerical assignments. “He took charge of the office’s Christmas decorations in 2016,” told Dilao.
 
Dilao was positive of Padoc’s employment potential because of his perseverance to succeed coupled with gained working experiences in the Department. “Renz will be an asset to any organization he wishes to be part of,” she said.  
 
After his stint at DOLE, Padoc became an employee relations officer in a private establishment in Manila. “I am thankful that DOLE has a program like the GIP that helps make youth more job-ready before we enter the world of work,” said Padoc in an interview. “I won’t forget the learnings I gained from this program,” he added.
