Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles encouraged job seekers interested in public sector positions to explore opportunities through the CSC Job Portal, available at

He highlighted the portal's significance in offering aspiring government employees detailed information and easy access to a wide range of job openings within the public sector.

“Patuloy ang pagdami ng mga oportunidad sa trabaho sa gobyerno dahil laging may pangangailangan para sa mga mahuhusay at tapat na kawani na magbibigay ng dekalidad na serbisyo publiko. Ang CSC Job Portal ay isang madaling paraan upang makita ang mga bakanteng posisyon sa iba't ibang ahensya ng pamahalaan sa lahat ng rehiyon ng Pilipinas,” said Chairperson Nograles.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has announced an initiative to support fresh graduates and first-time jobseekers aiming for government positions by offering Certificates of Eligibility (COE) at no cost.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles said that under Republic Act (R.A.) No. 11261 or the First Time Jobseekers Assistance Act (FTJAA), government agencies shall no longer collect fees or charges from a first time jobseeker (FTJ) requesting common pre-employment documents.

“We all know how overwhelming it can be to apply for a job for the first time, especially when completing documentary requirements. Offering free pre-employment documents to qualified first-time job seekers not only makes government services more accessible but also expands employment opportunities for Filipinos," said Chairperson Nograles.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warned the public about unscrupulous parties pretending to be officials and employees of the institution, soliciting favors, and disseminating false information.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles advised stakeholders to be wary of messages, emails, or phone calls from individuals posing as CSC employees requesting for sensitive information or documents.

May mga natanggap kaming reports na may nagpapanggap na mga kawani ng CSC upang makahingi ng impormasyon, pera, o pabor mula sa mga ahensya ng pamahalaan at maging sa publiko. We are reminding the public to be vigilant by directly verifying the authenticity of the transaction from the CSC Regional or Field Office concerned,” said Chairperson Nograles.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles is confident that granting Career Service Eligibility – Preference Rating (CSE-PR) to specific government workers will increase the number of civil service eligibles and provide new opportunities to join public service.

“They always say that the government is the biggest employer whether nationally or locally. We hope that with this new issuance, we can get more eligibles, especially those na tina-target natin, the JOCOSC6,” he said during the CSC press conference at the Philippine Information Agency.

“We’re very positive that this policy will have an impact in getting more civil service eligibles into the pool, and getting them to fill up vacant positions in the government,” Chairperson Nograles added.

JOCOSC6 is the collective term for specific groups of workers in government agencies, encompassing job order (JO), contract of service (COS), casual, contractual, coterminous, employees holding Category III and Category IV positions, as enumerated in CSC Memorandum Circular No. 10 dated 16 April 2013, and career service employees with first level eligibility.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles addressed the 1.9 million civil servants in various agencies nationwide as the country celebrates the 126th anniversary of Philippine Independence Day.

Kaisa ng bumubuo ng Komisyon sa Serbisyo Sibil, ang aking mainit na pagbati at pagtawag ng pakikiisa sa ika-126 taong pagdiriwang ng proklamasyon ng kalayaan ng ating bansa,” he said.

“This year’s theme, Kalayaan, Kinabukasan, Kasaysayan, underscores the importance of independence in the achievement of the country’s collective aspiration for the future contained in the Philippine Development Plan—to enjoy a strongly-rooted, comfortable, and secure life,” added Chairperson Nograles in his message.
