The PEIS is a database of active manpower supply containing the profiles of all persons and employers, information on the qualifications and skills of the applicants as well as the job vacancies posted by the employers.
Meanwhile, the PhilJobNet is an internet-based job and applicant matching system which aims to fast track jobseekers search for jobs and employers search for manpower.
Lastly, the PTMI is a springboard for linking the students, academe, government, workforce and industry in addressing the job-skill mismatch and therefore increasing the employability of the Filipino workforce.
