More Filipinos will now be able to find work in “Trabahanap,” ABS-CBN’s newest public service initiative that offers job openings in construction, factories, fastfood centers, and more.
“Trabahanap fully embodies ABS-CBN’s mission to be of service to the Filipino as it opens opportunities to a vast number of people looking for livelihood,” said Mark Awiten, head of Trabahanap and CineMo channel.

The job placement service is available in three platforms—online, on air via the CineMo Channel and on INFOplus of ABS-CBN TVplus, and on-ground via job fairs.
With the Trabahanap website, Filipinos are just a click away from the jobs that fit them.
“Applying for jobs is easier now because you just have to log-in, no longer have to ‘walk-in’ to be interviewed by the employer, and because there are also more jobs available that match an applicant’s skills and his desired job,” according to Awiten.
Among its features is a geolocation capability that will find job openings that are near the jobseekers’ homes. Users can set it in any of the 4 distance options, namely 3 kms, 5 kms, 10 ks, and 15 kms.
“We believe that helping Filipinos find jobs is just as important as giving them the chance to have more time with their families,” said Awiten.
A place of work that is close to home also means that workers are less stressed with commute and have more money saved from transportation. “The money that workers can save from commuting can now be used for other family expenses,’ Awiten added.
Jobseekers just need to register and create an account on the website to start using the service.
Trabahanap will join various job fairs around the country to give access to job opportunities to those with no internet connection.
CineMo will also continue to air job postings at the end of every program on ABS-CBN TV Plus.
The public is encouraged to watch CineMo channel and follow Trabahanap on Facebook for announcements on job fairs included in the ABS-CBN Sopresaya truck tour.
