POEA warns against 'fictitious jobs' abroad

Iloilo City (8 December) -- Philippine Overseas Employment Administration 6 Officer-in-Charge Rhea Glynda Calantas reiterated the warning issued earlier to medical students, graduates and practitioners against illegal recruiters offering fictitious hospital jobs abroad.

Calantas said their Central Office has received various reports of illegal recruitment of medical professionals and skilled workers through the internet to work in'ghost hospitals' in destinations such as Switzerland, Israel and Guam.

She cited the report of the Philippine Embassy in Berne of a certain "Semino Private Hospital' in Switzerland that does not exist which claims to have a student program and offers internship jobs and substantial allowances through e-mail to lure applicants.

Also the Labor Attache in Israel reported of "Jordan Valley Medical Center" offering nursing jobs which were found to be fictitious as no such hospital exists.

An alert was also made by the Consul General in Agana of a fake hospital in Guam, the "Guam General Hospital that is soliciting applications for nursing jobs. Its website was recently discovered to have the same content with that of

Calantas advised jobseekers to always make sure that the job being offered in the internet really exists by checking the website of the employer, the complete address, postal code and contact details.

"Do not deal with employers with no verifiable contact details", said Calantas adding "also ask for employment contract authenticated by the Philippine Embassy and Consulate nearest to the address of the employer". (PIA/LAFrench)
