Five Philippine government offices are now open for job applicants, offering a total of 3,320 job vacancies. These agencies are: the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Department of Finance (DOF), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), and Department of Tourism (DOT).
The announcement was made via a press release at Gov.ph last Thursday, May 14, 2015, in an effort to reduce the unemployment rate in the country. The job vacancies also aim to promote integrity in the government and the positive change, through hiring eligible, young Filipinos in the civil service.

“To ensure the sustainability of President Aquino’s good governance initiatives, we need a constant flow of young, talented Filipinos entering government with a critical eye and a hopeful heart. I had the privilege of meeting the late Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore a few years ago, and I agree with him when he says that the only way to change government is from within. To young Filipinos: your country needs you. We hope that you respond to this call to service,” Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima said.
“We need a critical mass of young, honest Filipinos who love the country to join the BIR. The 3,211 vacancies we have posted are around a fifth of the Bureau’s workforce: this is our chance to transform the Bureau into a vibrant organization that can respond to the changing times and demands of the modern taxpayer,” Commissioner of Internal Revenue Kim S. Jacinto-Henares said.

All the 3,320 job vacancies are posted at the job matching site Kalibrr.com, through the partnership with the Bagumbayani Initiative, a program by Young Public Servants (YPS). The job hiring had an initial soft launch this April, and these agencies have already received a number of applicants.
On the other hand, Kalibrr.com had an initial Alpha launch in April 2011 and started as a training platform for Filipinos who want to apply in local call centers. Through the leadership of Kalibrr Chief Executive Officer Paul Rivera, the site has already provided more than 1,500 jobs from almost 4,000 companies.
