BALANGA CITY—The Bataan Peninsula State University and a job agency have approved in principle the internship program for university agriculture students in Japan, said a university official.
Dr. Hermogenes Paguia, BPSU OIC vice president for research, extension and training services, said BPSU president Dr. Greg Rodis and Prudential Employment Agency Inc. CEO Ephraim Alcazaren agreed to set up the program.
Alcazaren said applicants must have had agriculture work experience, and must be 20 to 32 years old. He said applicants need not pay anything, and will have a good compensation package. He said they will be hiring 200 workers.
However, Paguia said, the agency still has to sign a memorandum of agreement with the BPSU.
He said the internship in Japan is under the university internationalization program for students.
BPSU has six campuses all over Bataan. Its Abucay Campus offers agriculture courses.
The agency, through Gov. Abet Garcia, met on Friday provincial agriculturist Imelda Inieto, PESO manager Melchor Cui, legal consultant Atty. Joey Angeles, agriculture officers and workers from towns of the province, and BPSU officials to announce the hiring of agriculture workers for internship.
The agency will conduct interviews and orientation on September 23 and 24 at the People’s Center capitol.
