Enrolling in a training program will exempt PUA claimants from job search requirement

Guam Department of Labor director Dave Dell’Isola has advice for PUA recipients as GDOL gets closer to implementing job search requirements.

Dell’Isola said that GDOL is preparing to implement job search requirements once the governor gives her approval.

Once it’s approved PUA applicants will be required to search for at least three jobs every week.

They’ll also have to upload proof of their job search.

Dell’Isola said that one way to get exempted is to enroll in a training program.

GDOL is working with GCC and other organizations to stand up training programs for those who’ve lost their jobs because of the pandemic or are looking to change professions.

Another piece of advice he gave is for applicants to begin building a resume on hire-guam.com.

Dell’Isola said that since PUA applicants are already registered on the website…they might as well submit a resume.

He also said that submitting a resume on the site is another way to meet the job search requirement.

“Please go on to Hire Guam..you’re already registered. But go ahead and start to submit a resume … there’s a resume builder on the Hire Guam and start completing your background on your profile. That is also a way for you to do your job search and also to look for work. And I’m always making a plea to all the employers to please post your job on our website,” Dell’Isola said.

Dell’Isola told Newstalk K57 earlier that he recommended GovGuam hold off on the job search requirement until a more diverse inventory of jobs becomes available.
