Radyo Inquirer reports that MMDA Spokesperson Celine Pialago announced the MMDA summer jobs offerings from the government agency last March 10, 2019 (Sunday). She mentioned that this isn’t the first time that the MMDA offered summer jobs to students. Three years ago, when she first worked for the government agency, there were already summer jobs that if offered. As said, under the Special Program for Employment of Students or SPES, a summer job from this government agency is Php537 per day.
The 60% of the salary of the students will come from MMDA and the remaining 40% will come from the Department of Labor and Employment which pushed this initiative. This summer, some 250 students will be chosen as SPES interns. The job descriptions will range from Administrative to clerical. Applications are open to High School students and college students.
Pialago clarified that the SPES interns won’t be manning the traffic of Metro Manila. She added that to be a traffic enforcer, an applicant needs 3 months of training. Aside from the office jobs they might get into, they might be included in clearing operations to familiarize them on how MMDA functions. The internship program will last for a month.
