The Importance Of Deepening Ties And Friendship On Online English Education

51Talk hosts the 2020 Sino-Philippines Educational Exchanges in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the founding of bilateral relations between the Philippines and China.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) named ‘bogus’ social media accounts that use name and logo of POEA to entice Filipinos looking for employment opportunities abroad on Tuesday.

POEA Administrator Bernard Olalia said the fake POEA Facebook pages are not verified or approved by the agency to advertise job vacancies in countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, and the United States.

He identified the bogus FB accounts as POEA Job Hirings in New Zealand, POEA Jobs Online, OFW POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Job Hiring USA, POEA Job Hiring Australia, POEA Job Hiring UK, POEA Job Agency Hiring, POEA Trabaho Abroad Hiring, POEA Jobs in Dubai, Work Abroad-POEA Licensed Company and POEA Accredited Licensed Agency.

Olalia said the FB page “POEA Job Hirings in New Zealand” was reported to have posted ads of supposed job vacancies of Honda New Zealand.

“The company has since denied any active recruitment activity in the Philippines or any country outside New Zealand,” Olalia said in a statement.

He said facebook.com/poea.gov.ph is the official Facebook account of the POEA.

“It has a blue checkmark signifying that it is authentic as verified by Facebook itself,” he added.

Olalia warned the applicants not to use the fake POEA FB accounts.

He also urged them to confirm first with the POEA the validity of the jobs offered through email and social media by using the online verification system at the website poea.gov.ph or by calling telephone hotlines 8722-1144 and 8722-1155. (PNA)
