SSS Zambo GIPs finish 35-day internship period

PDFPrintE-mail

Ten working students of Social Security System (SSS) Zamboanga Branch successfully completed their 35-day Government Internship Program (GIP) last May 31.

The chosen college students were tasked to do various SSS support functions such as clerical and secretarial work, and customer service.

SSS Zamboanga Branch Head Elizabeth G. Cabatingan said the GIPs were also instrumental during the last few days of the Loan Restructuring Program (LRP) implementation last April 27 as they assisted regular SSS employees who received LRP applications and facilitated clients’ concerns.

During the closing ceremonies held at the SSS Zamboanga Employees’ Lounge, the interns performed various intermission numbers, individually shared memorable experiences during their stay, and acknowledged employees who made their GIP life more meaningful.  Photo shows the participants in preparation of their Zumba exercise.

Joyce D. Borleo, one of the chosen GIP participants, is an out-of-school youth who thanked the SSS for the rare opportunity of being part of the annual program.  She said that her daily stipend of P340 helped her save up for enrollment to continue her studies.

Sherfaina A. Salahuddin, an incoming 4th year Bachelor of Science in Community Development student from Western Mindanao State University, said that she has learned a lot from her summer internship and was able to apply her knowledge in dealing with clients because this was in line with her course.  Coming from a broken family, she also expressed her appreciation to her supervisor and peers for filling in that filial void.

Cabatingan encouraged the participants to persevere when tough times come and pursue their goal to finish their education.  “Make sure you graduate.  Then take and pass the Civil Service exam for professional eligibility so you may soon join us here in the System.”

While the GIP seeks to initiate the youth participants into public service through involvement in government programs and projects, it also serves as a recruitment mechanism for potential government employees.

This year, the SSS hired 530 college students all over the country. Twenty slots were allotted to Mindanao West Division with SSS Zamboanga taking in the 10 students and the remaining 10 were distributed to the division’s other branches, namely Pagadian, Dipolog, Basilan, Ipil, and Jolo.
