This activity begins with the complete definition of the manpower requirement of the employer. It is mandatory to have the following information at this point:

The end result of this activity is a short list of candidates for each job category, preliminary to the final interview and selection.

Please note at this point, No medical exams, passport and trade testing may be done because of the huge expense involved in these test. Philippine law disallows us to burden applicants with premature expenditures.

The employer on its option may send Representative/ or Authorized Foreign Representative to conduct the final interview of short- listed candidates. This activity must be done as soon as possible to keep the qualified applicants interest in the job.

This activity must be completed within one (1) day to one (1) week depending on the volume and the deliberation process required to arrive at a decision.


As soon as the selected candidate passes the medical examination (and without waiting for other less problematic steps) we will require him to sign the employment contract. Necessary documents including performance/repatriation bonds will be executed by the candidate to ensure the commitment of the applicant that:

1. He will not apply with other Employer.
2. He will definitely board the airplane to the work site as scheduled.
