Due to a lack of job opportunities here in our country, a licensed engineer who also passed as a registered master electrician applied as a helper.
A netizen named Jensen Sunga posted a photo of the Licensed Electrical Engineer/Master Electrician on his social media account where he can be seen working as a helper at a construction site. The said post immediately went viral online and earned various comments from the netizens.
According to Jensen, a guy named Virgilio Reyes Jr. from Bicol traveled to Pampanga to apply for a job as a helper. Reyes is a licensed electrical engineer and a master electrician. He considers his action as a stepping stone toward obtaining a career that is in keeping with his education.
Virgilio is unfamiliar with Manila, therefore he is forced to apply as a worker at a construction site in Pampanga. He decides to work as a helper, which may help him in achieving his aim.
The concerned netizen also urged public assistance in providing the young man with a work opportunity for the future.
Here is the full post:
Pa apply naman po siya sa mga kakilala ninyo na Construction company na need ng Licensed Electrical Engineer/Master Electrician.
Tiga bicol siya nakipag sapalaran sa Pampanga, nag apply bilang Helper sa work namin.
Hind makapunta ng Manila para maka apply dahil hindi kabisado. Kaya ginawang stepping stone ang pampanga
Baka need nyo ng Engineer mga boss. Para sa Future niyaaa
Ps: nawalan ako ng karapatan mag reklamo sa trabaho dahil sa ginawa ng batang ito

The said post immediately earned various reactions and comments from the online community. Here are some of them:
“Masydo kasi mtaas ang standard s atin kaya mdmiskilled workers ang ngaabroad liit p sahod.”
“Napakahumble naman ng batang to. Ganyan dapat, walang arte2 muna lalo na at naghahanap pa lang ng pang experience. Hindi tulad ng ibang graduate gustong mataas na position agad applyan”
“Kaya mas ok pa magapply sa abroad kaysa dyan sa pinas. Ganyan na ganyan ako nung bagong pasa ako tas may diskriminasyon pa sa school, unang tanung saan ka graduation paghindi nila kilala out kana agad kahit licensed ka.”
